Healthy Kid-Friendly Thanksgiving Foods

As you continue your Thanksgiving meal prep – it’s not too late to make sure you have some healthy kid-friendly options that even the pickiest of eaters will love. See below for some of our favorite (and easy) recipes, provided by parenting.com!

“Ice Cream” Mashed Potatoes
Who wouldn’t want to finish their vegetables if they looked like their favorite dessert? You’ll need sweet potatoes and red or white potatoes, plus some hot chocolate mix for the chocolate scoop.

Turkey Muffins
Let your kids build their own turkey muffin! You’ll need a pumpkin muffin, red and green apples, a grape, and some icing!

Turkey Nuggets
Are your kids a fan of chicken nuggets? Serve up some turkey suggest this Thanksgiving instead! Using a small, round cookie cutter, simply cut little medallions of turkey, then bread and broil!

Crunchy Chickpeas
For those who want a crunchy snack, choose this protein packed treat! Spread out some chickpeas on a pan, drizzle with olive oil and a little salt. Roast in the oven and enjoy!

Aside from the above, also serve some tooth-friendly foods like cheese, raw veggies, and nuts! From all of us here at Adelberg Montalvan Pediatric Dental – we hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving!
