Big Time Vegan Mexican Burrito Bowl
I don't know about you guys, but I don't think I've met a kid (or anyone of any age) who doesn't like chips. Which makes this easy to toss together burrito bowl a nice way to get all those healthy things in, things like beans, corn, lettuce and any other yummy things you might want to add to this recipe.
Smoky Vegan Macaroni And Cheese
When I was growing up, mac 'n cheese was DEFINITELY a favorite staple in our house. Even outside the house, as a kid (I sadly didn't know what vegan was as a 5 year old) we'd go out and I'd still get mac 'n cheese at the restaurants. As you can see I am a connoisseur of this pasta dish, so I can tell you that this veganized version from Blissful Basil passes the "yum yum" test.
Cauliflower Buffalo Wings
Finger food reigns supreme in this house. Since I could toddle around it was hard to get me to sit down and eat a solid meal in one sitting. At the end of the day, my mother decided to just set out food so that I could grab it and keep going. This recipe from Hot for Food made me think of that, perfect for a set down, picnic with the whole family OR as a grab it and go munchie.

It's sweet, handheld, crunchy. This is our on recipe from here at Vegan Banana, so head on over here if you want the recipe or just some extra ideas on how to spice up a quick meal for your kid.
