This week is all about celebrating kidrecipes.com.au's 3 months up and running, and celebrating the many fantastic recipes that have played a part in building kidrecipes in those first few months!



Yesterday we brought you a handful of our favourite desserts. But desserts are a sometimes food, so here are a handful of our favourite family- and kid- friendly, healthy dinners.

1.Hakuna Matata Frittata

Brought to kidrecipes.com.au by Jane Street, this was one of our earliest recipes and was influential in getting the ball rolling!



This frittata is easy to make and can be enjoyed by the whole family - no worries! I used mushroom and zucchini but you could use susbtitute different vegetables. If your kids don't like eating anything that looks like a vegetable, try grating the zucchini instead of chopping it. Serve warm straight from the oven for a tasty dinner, or chilled for lunch on a sunny day.

See the Hakuna Matata Frittata here.

2. Perfect Poached Egg

Also by Jane Street, this delicious poached egg recipe was also among one of kidrecipes' first articles with a recipe that's perfect for the little ones.



There's nothing better than a perfect poached egg for dinner; less fiddly to eat than a boiled egg and healthier than a fried egg. Once you get the hang of poaching you'll find it even easier than scrambling. Little kids can eat a poached egg easily with a spoon or just use their hands without too much mess. The secret the perfect poached egg is adding white vinegar to the water and using a deep slotted spoon.

See the recipe here.

3. Cheesy Garlic Bread

Published by Barbara, this garlic bread has proven to be an easy family dinner time favourite!



We all love home made garlic bread but it's so much tastier with extra cheese. Garlic bread is something we usually have with our dinner. I like to use fresh bread but you can also use left over old bread. I used left over tiger buns for this meal and a really good quality extra virgin olive oil which makes all the difference. Our kids love garlic which is a bonus. We also grow our own garlic and parsley which is a pleasure to bring in of an evening so that we can make garlic bread to go with our meal.

4. Panko Chicken Goujons

Claire Winlow's chicken finger recipe is another quick and easy favourite that the little ones will love!



These Panko chicken goujons make a great meal that all ages will enjoy. You could use regular breadcrumbs but Panko gives it an extra crispy crunch. Panko is the Japanese word for breadcrumbs. However, compared to regular breadcrumbs, they are flaky and lighter. They also don't soak up the oil as much so you get a lighter crisply coated goujon. I also bake these chicken goujons in the oven as a much healthier alternative to store bought deep fried alternatives. You can eat these chicken goujons as they are or try putting them in a tortilla wrap with roasted peppers, onions and a little mayonnaise/

5. Rainbow Salad with Quinoa

A recipe by Lucy, this is a healthy salad that will fill the ravenous tummies of the little ones!.



The best way to get kids to eat healthy, nutritious food is to present it in an appealing way and include them in the preparation of the meal. The Peruvian seed, quinoa is so very good for us as it is packed with all the Essential Amino Acids (EAAs), but the challenge is getting kids used to its unusual taste (which is actually quite nutty and delicious)

See this salad here.

6. Creamy Salmon Pasta

A final favourite is another recipe by [ Lucy - this time a healthy, hearty creamy salmon pasta that makes a delicious and easy family meal that the whole family can help to create.



This recipe is very tasty and perfect for an older child to prepare for the family dinner (perhaps with a little adult supervision). It is a nourishing and wholesome meal, which will leave your guests impressed and satisfied. We used fresh smoked salmon, however the recipe would work just as well with tinned red salmon.
