Kid Food Ideas And Snacks

My hubby has been giving me a hard time for making everything for the blog and for having to take pictures of all our food before we can eat.

Being the smartalek that he is, he decided that he was going to make the 
most amazing, delicious, "atomic" creation that would flood the blog with traffic... so here it is folks.

He named it "Red Neck Dessert"

Toasted Bread with PB, Chocolate Syrup & Marshmallows.

See all the little feet crowding?  I got one bite...
I'm laughing pretty hard at this picture along with the name.
It fit's pretty well.
I swear my little boy is sticking his belly out

and actually has p.j.'s that fit. 

Pickle Bunny Bites
Cut baby carrots in ½ lengthwise
Cut dill pickles in ½ lengthwise
Wrap strips of ham (lunch meat style) around carrots & pickles

Fruit & Cheese Bites
Layer crackers with slices of cheese and pieces of strawberries/ kiwi’s

Pear Bunny
Lay a leaf of lettuce on a plate & top with a pear half,

Then put a scoop of cottage cheese at one end of the pear to look like the bunny’s tail.
Use sliced almonds or little pieces of carrots or celery for ears and chocolate chips for the eyes.

Grilled Turkey Club
Butter one side on two pieces of bread and toast
Layer with cheese, cooked slices of bacon and turkey meat, & a slice of tomato

Layer a can of re-fried beans on a plate and top with tortilla chips
Top with a can of cooked chili, add grated cheese and sour cream.

Cook pasta and top with butter, or
Alfredo Sauce
Melt 4 oz. cream cheese,1/4 cup butter, 1/3-2/3 cup milk, about ½ cup Parmesan cheese

Chicken Nuggets
Cut small pieces of cooked chicken breast and coast with egg, dip in mixture of bread crumbs, paprika, salt & pepper, and Parmesan cheese.  Place on a pan and cook at 350 degrees for about 10 on each side, or until done.

Breakfast Ideas
·       Make faces on a pancake with fruit, bacon, sausage, ham, eggs, whipped cream
·       Cut French toast up into strips and dip in “puddles” of syrup
·       Scrambled eggs with cheese and ham
·       Muffins- blueberry, poppy seed 
·       Bagels with cream cheese
·       Bowl of cut up fruit
·       Banana split in oatmeal instead of ice cream, but with all the same toppings you’d put on ice cream (including chocolate syrup)

Good old Mac N’ Cheese with/ or without cut up hot dogs

Peanut butter & Jelly sandwich

Little Pizza’s
Use English muffins and let the kid decide what they want on their pizza, bake at 350 for 10 min., or until the cheese is melted.

Make the meat and put all the toppings in little bowls and let the kids put theirs together, try soft shells and hard ones- or make fry bread for Navajo Tacos

Beef & Tater-Tot Casserole
11/2  lb. browned ground beef
1-2 cans cram of chicken with ½- ¾ can of milk
1 pkg. frozen tater-tot’s
Place ground beef in casserole dish, pour soup on top then tater-tots, bake at 350 for 45 mins.
