Yet again, I am about to reveal my grouchiness, but I sincerely detest making my children’s lunches for school. It is about as ungratifying a task as there can possibly be on the parental front. Kids aren’t about to thank you if they loved their lunch, but they are sure to complain if you included something they didn’t like! On the whole, I try not to cater too much to my kids’ likes and dislikes, because they appear to change their mind about food as often as most people change their clothes. But they are three little individuals with rather emphatic opinions about food. Finding something all three will eat willingly, but that also measures up to my standards of health, can be quite a challenge.
So when the lovely Shawn of I Wash…You Dry asked me to guest post in her Healthy Kids’ Lunch series, I had to put my thinking cap on. I wanted it to be something almost any kid I know would eat happily. I wanted it to be something that was quick and easy to make, and that could also be packable for schools and camps. And I wanted it to be gluten free, as I am working hard on getting my family to consume less gluten. I think I nailed it with these remarkably easy grilled chicken tenders. You won’t believe how easy this recipe is! And my kids adore them. What kid doesn’t love eating food off a stick? They are great cold and can be packed up for lunches away from home too.
So head on over to I Wash…You Dry for this super easy, kid-friendly recipe.
