Growing seasons are winding down and soon we’ll be in the middle of winter and missing the amazing variety of produce at our finger tips right now. I know some children feel a little adversely to vegetables. Even though I have a deep love of vegetables at times my own daughter is a little less than thrilled about them. The more often you offer up vegetables for your children the more of a chance you have of them eating  them. Why not try? So now is the time to make some delicious foods using great fall vegetables. I propose a few kid friendly fall recipes for your enjoyment.

Easy meals are a busy mother’s dream. Easy and Precious Butternut Squash Soup is a great way to get your kids to eat a healthy and filling veggie. Butternut squash soup is also a very baby and toddler friendly meal.

If your children are anything like mine macaroni and cheese is always a winner. Baked Gruyere and Butternut Squash Mac n Cheese is sure to be a winner for the whole family.



If you think like me pancakes the perfect thing for breakfast lunch or dinner and Whole Grain Pumpkin Pancakes are a great way to sneak whole grains and pumpkin onto your children’s plates.
