My Kid’s Favorite Eats

When it comes to food, M definitely has her favorites. Like everyone, she has her regular staples such as PB&J sandwiches, yogurt, pickles, and whatever cereal of the moment she is in to. I do my best to offer her a wide variety of foods, but there are some foods that get a special request. Here are her top requested foods.

Veggie Nuggets

About once per week, she asks for veggie nuggets. Made of the classic frozen vegetable combo of corn, peas, diced carrots, green beans, and lima beans, she will clean her plate when these are served. These just happen to be highest searched kiddie recipe on Weekly Bite.

English Muffin Pizza

These are always a favorite in our house. Every time I make these Mr. Weekly Bite requests one too 🙂

Zucchini Fries

M loves her zucchini fries. I make them as a side dish to whatever we are having for dinner that evening.


Every Saturday morning we have waffles. It’s a tradition in our home. We keep the leftover waffles to make wafflewiches. M’s favorite is peanut butter & jelly, but she also loves them stuffed with scrambled eggs & cheese.

Orange Pom-Pom Slushy

It doesn’t matter whether it is hot or cold outside. This is always a hit.

Pumpkin Pie Popsicles

Can we take a moment and address how young M looks in this picture? This was taken almost exactly one year ago. It’s amazing how much she has grown. We love making our own popsicles. With the abundance of pumpkin in the Fall season I love making her these Pumpkin Pie Pops. She loves them!


Bananaberry Smoothie

It’s no secret that we are smoothie lovers in our house. M will drink just about any flavor, but if she has to choose, this would be her flavor.

Salad Bar Lunch

One of our favorite things to do is grab lunch at a salad bar. Whenever we are grocery shopping, we swing by the salad bar and fill up the to go container with all sorts of goodies. M love picking out some of her favorite foods there 🙂

Sunflower Butter Pinwheels

Of all the school lunches I make, sunflower butter pinwheels, or sandwiches are her favorite. If she could this every day she would.

I could go list at least 6 or 7 more foods that she loves, but for the sake of the blog, I’m keeping to her 10 favorites.

    I’m definitely going to try the veggie nuggets. Have you ever tried freezing them and re-heating? I’m really into things I can make in big quantites and freeze for later.

    Hi Maura 🙂
    I have never tried freezing them, but have received several emails from mom’s who were freezing them.

    I would eat with M any day! My boys ask for all types of stuff. Lately they are really loving our finger food night which includes meats, cheeses and veggies for dipping. Kind of funny how we never really grow out of our love of finger foods.

    Your kid’s favorites sound fabulous to ME! I love the palate your daughter is developing. I hope my son will be making similar requests in a couple of years.

    I love these ideas!!! I have a 10 month old and am getting overwhelmed trying to figure out what to feed her as she is moving toward ‘real’ food. I am excited to try the veggie nuggets ( for her and myself also!!)… Btw love your blog; I found it while I was searching (and searching) for working mom healthy/ fitness blogs!
