    Kid approved meals for dinner?

    I thought it would be a great idea to try some more weeknight dinner recipes that are recommended by other parents as being "kid-approved" by their family icon_biggrin.gif

    Both my daughters will try pretty much anything....but my youngest daughter isn't keen on warmer spices and chilli (I do manage to slip some into our meals though icon_lol.gif )

    I have three kids who have inheirited their father's "picky eater" gene. I make sure that we have at least one kid friendly night a week where the kids get to pick what is on the menu. Ham and cheese rollups made with crescent rolls are a favorite and most pasta dishes go off without a fit. Anything in a tortilla seems to be a hit too so we often go that route too. I also give out "goodie" coupons to the kids for finishing what they don't like. Basically if they finish something that they don't want to eat they get a goodie coupon which they can turn in for various goodies after dinner or they can save up for an extra special treat later in the week. If they get 5 coupons in a week then they get something big like a trip to the ice cream shop. We also found that chili goes off better when we add macaroni noodles.
