Feeding Time!

Here are a few of my foolproof kid-friendly recipes.

Pinterest has the most amazing & simple kids snack ideas, which is where I found these! One of my top after-school snacks: ‘Mini Ham and Cheese Quinoa Cups.’ Packed with protein and low in calories!


I’ve been using quinoa a ton recently and the extremely picky 5-year-old I nanny gobbled these up!

The BEST part is you can adapt this recipe so easily depending on your taste and what you have in the fridge.

Shopping List:

  • 1 cup shredded zucchini
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 egg whites
  • 2 cups cooked quinoa
  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup diced ham
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley
  • 2 tablespoons parmesan
  • 2 sliced green onions
  • salt/pepper

Preheat oven to 350.

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl.

Non-stick spray a mini muffin tin and spoon in mixture.

Bake 15-20 min until edges are golden brown. Let cool before removing from tin.



I got this idea for ‘Simple Cinnamon Rolls’ from one of my favorite blogs and had to share! So easy, healthy, and kids are sure to love this treat.


Shopping List:

  • 1 can refrigerated dough
  • Olive oil
  • Cinnamon sugar
  • Granny smith apples – or apples of your choice

First, open the dough and roll it out flat onto a floured cookie sheet. Brush it with olive oil then sprinkle cinnamon sugar on top.

My favorite dough is from Immaculate Baking Co. & sold at Whole Foods. The ingredients are all recognizable, unlike Pillsbury, etc. Their biscuit dough makes delicious cinnamon rolls, you’ll just need to roll it out into a sheet.

Cut pieces length wise so you have long, thin strips.

Roll up each strip and stick in a few thin slices of apple.

Put in a greased mini muffin tin and bake at 350 for 10-15 min.

YUM! Using a mini muffin pan will keep it to an individual small treat.

Happy cooking!!
