If your kid likes mac and cheese, your easy kid dinner recipes are:
Mac-and-cheese Style Cauliflower from Vegetarian Times. Seriously, give it a try. Your kids might surprise you!
Can't loose the elbows? Try adding reducing the cheese and adding vegetables like this Sweet Potato Macaroni and Cheese from Nigella Lawson or this Butternut Squash Mac and Cheese for Toddler from Baby Food-e is almost entirely cheese-less (and the little bit of cheese is easily omitted).
If your kids likes chicken nuggets, your easy kid dinner recipes are:
Obviously using whole pieces of chicken is going to be better than many store-bought options out there. But baking them yourself also makes them a lot healthier.
To stick close to the classic but go grain-free (and avoid white flour) try these delicious Easy Chicken Fingers from Wellness Mama. Or just follow the basics, but bake the nuggets like in this great Healthy Baked Chicken Nugget recipe from Skinny Taste.
