9 Simple Dinner Recipes Your Kids Will Love

There something so satisfying about watching your child eat and enjoy an entire home-cooked meal. Unfortunately, those times are few and far between. More often it’s a case of “Ergh, I don’t like food that’s green” or “I can’t eat this spaghetti, it’s too noodley” or “I HATE crunchy soup”.

To help you satisfy those picky eaters and serve up a tempting meal that doesn’t require too much work on your part, we’ve rounded up nine great recipes from across the Web. 

Fish Fingers and Mushy Peas

Captain Birdseye isn’t the only person that can knock up a decent fish finger. In fact, when you realise how much kids enjoy these and how easy they are to make, you’ll probably never opt for frozen alternatives again. Complete with a side of mint and lemon mushy peas, you can serve up fish fingers for four in less than half an hour.
