Healthy Meals for Wee Ones
Have you heard of www.weelicious.com? It’s one of my favourite recipe sites created by mom of two, Catherine McCord. It features recipes and videos specially designed for families with young children.
When I had a home daycare, nutrition was a major concern for many of my clients. They wanted their children to be served healthy snacks, hot lunches, and even organic foods. Of course, as a mom, I did too.
The weelicious.com recipe box is filled with recipes that are not only healthy but quick to prepare too. The site is thoughtfully laid out, dividing recipes into sections for easy retrieval. You can search by ingredient or by category such as gluten or nut-free recipes, lunch ideas, and homemade snacks just to name a few. I especially love the ‘freeze well’ recipe section because I can serve up a portion that same day and then freeze the rest for future meals. It’s a real time-saver to prepare two meals at once.
The Easy Chicken Nuggets, Spanakopita and Pumpkin Waffles are just some of my family’s favourites from weelicious.com (all of which freeze well).
A new school year means an adjustment in routines and often reduced time to prepare healthy meals. So if you’re looking for some easy, kid-friendly recipes and a little extra inspiration in the kitchen, check out weelicious.com!
