Kid Food

This little pumpkin below has not been the greatest eater lately.  If I remember correctly, Sierra went through this stage when she was about Kam's age.  Makenna did too.  Of course, I'm a lot more laid back about it now, because I know that she will grow out of it.  I try to get them to eat their fruits and veggies, and to understand that they don't always have multiple choices when it comes to meals.  Sometimes, though, you have to pick your battles, and just pull out the "kid food".


I make these pizza pockets whenever the girls are getting tired of sandwiches and soups for lunch.
They're SUPER easy, fast, and they disappear quite quickly.


All you need is a can or two {we use two} of refrigerated crescent roll dough, grated cheese, and any other toppings you choose.  I used to spread tomato paste on too, but we don't love a lot of sauce, and after awhile, I just quit using it.  Unroll the crescent roll dough, but don't peel the sections apart.  Lay half of it flat on a cookie sheet.  Sprinkle plenty of cheese on top {we do, however, enjoy a lot of cheese}.  Then we arrange some Turkey Pepperoni on top of that.  You could even add olives and mushrooms.  {My girls don't care for either, and since this is supposed to be kid-friendly, I cater to them ;)}  Maybe another little sprinkle of cheese, and then top with the other half of the crescent roll dough.  Bake at 375 degrees until the top is golden brown {maybe 15 minutes?  I'm not sure I've ever timed it}, and enjoy!

Let me know if you decide to make these, or if you've made your own version.  And if you have your own kid-friendly {and easy!  Easy is always good} meal ideas, do share!

That sounds so yummy! We eat a ton of different types of pizza like foods too:) I've used canned biscuits to make mini pizzas before!

Thanks for the idea! Poor Harbor eats a lot of hotdogs! This would be a great change!

That sounds yummy! I remember when I was a kid, we'd make little pizzas with English muffins.

I might make these for my daughter. She is really picky. So I'd make it with just cheese in it.

Isn't it funny how we 'lighten up' about things the older/wiser we get?
