Do you need a new menu for dinner that isn’t super difficult but the whole family will love? I make tuna casserole for my daycare kids and they can’t get enough of it. I love it too. I have a formula for making my own homemade hamburger helper type meals that save me time and money on food but are made without all the harmful chemicals that come in processed food. This tuna casserole is a spin on that idea.
Do you know how many chemicals are in hot pockets? They are convenient and can be delicious, especially if you make them yourself. This homemade ham and cheese hot pocket recipe is a kid pleaser. You can make it in bulk and freeze it for several meals to save a ton of time.
I use the pioneer woman’s pizza crust recipe for this because it’s perfect every time. She knows what’s up! Click here for the dough recipe.
When you get ready to plan a daycare menu, do you feel overwhelmed or don’t know where to begin? Making a plan for your child care menu is a big job. I would highly recommend getting on a food program because they give you guidelines to go by. With a few simple steps, you’ll have your menu planned before you know it.
I don’t wholeheartedly agree with all of the USDA rules, but I do know the program can help kids get better nutrition than they otherwise would. Think of providers that just make a package of ramen and that’s all the kids get. They would like it, but it isn’t optimal for children’s health.
Cooking with kids is great fun and there are so many things kids can learn. Math, science, motor skills, cooperation, taking turns, and many other things about cooking are beneficial to kids. In addition, kids are 80% more likely to try new foods if they helped prepare them. This healthy egg and vegetable breakfast casserole recipe is a winner.
