 Nutritious Ready-to-Eat Foods For Children

You want to serve your kids nutritious meals. That said, doing so may not always feel easy. According to surveys, the average family is busier than ever. Making time to prepare healthful meals for the kids is a challenge when you have too many other responsibilities on your plate (no pun intended) already.

Of course, you could serve them frozen meals, but those aren’t nutritious, right?

That’s a fair assumption to make. However, it’s not completely accurate. While there are plenty of frozen foods that lack nutritional value, there are also several that are surprisingly good for your kids. In fact, they are the kinds of foods that your kids will eat and actually enjoy. The following are just a few examples:

Hip Chick Farms Organic Chicken Fingers

Kids love chicken fingers. They also need protein. Although everyone needs protein, it’s particularly important for children, as it plays a key role in their development.

Luckily, these tasty chicken fingers offer up 20 grams of protein per serving. They’re also free of antibiotics and added hormones. Kids will love them, and you’ll feel good about serving them!

Luvo Toasted Cauliflower Mac n’ Cheese

It’s worth noting that frozen foods can also give you the opportunity to introduce new foods to picky eaters by combining nutritious ingredients with beloved snacks.

This cauliflower mac n’ cheese is just one example. Kids love mac n’ cheese, but they’re usually not that interested in cauliflower. That may change when you serve a frozen mac n’ cheese that uses cauliflower instead of pasta to deliver 55 grams of whole grains and a half cup of vegetables per serving.

Caulipower Margherita Cauliflower-Crust Pizza

Does the idea of introducing your kids to healthful foods via foods they already love appeal to you? If so, you may also want to serve up this cauliflower-crust pizza from time to time. Whether your kids dislike mac n’ cheese, or simply want more variety, it’s another delicious (and nutritious) option to consider.

Kashi Original 7 Grain Waffles

Nutritious frozen meals aren’t limited to lunch, dinner, and snacks. If your kids love waffles, trade in the brands targeting them for these frozen waffles from Kashi. Unlike waffles from other brands, they’re not high in refined flour. 

They also contain omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, and of course, whole grains, making them a genuinely healthful way for a kid to start their day.

Good Food Made Simple Turkey Meatball

It’s no secret that plenty of kids love spaghetti and meatballs. Unfortunately, meatballs made with beef tend to be both high in calories and fat. And, making meatballs in general can be time-consuming!

Save time while offering your kids a healthier alternative with these frozen turkey meatballs. They’re much leaner than beef meatballs, while still providing your kids with the protein they need.

These few examples simply illustrate that serving frozen meals isn’t always a bad idea. In fact, if you want your kids to be healthy, these options deliver major nutrients. The fact that they make your life easier is just an added bonus!
