Kid friendly tuna recipes

I run a home daycare and have for 27 years. I know picky eaters and I know what kids like to eat. So I know what kind of tuna recipes kids will go for. First, kids love anything with pasta. Tuna doesn’t change that.

When my daughter was growing up and I didn’t know how to cook, I would whip out that tuna helping every time. She loved it. And it was affordable. We were dirt poor. My husband and I both love tuna. It’s funny because he says he hates fish and tuna is the fishiest fish I can think of. But I digress…

I also love that tuna is already cooked, so unlike other proteins, there is no cook or cutting or prep time. Who doesn’t love easy? I know with 9 people to feed every day, I LOVE easy!

Even today canned tuna is one of the least expensive sources of protein available. I priced it out in my dirt cheap meals for daycare article and it was still on the list.
