The kids are home. They eat a lot. We need easy meals for Christmas break. Here are my ideas!
First, I know it’s cold outside but we’ve all been eating too much sugar, am I right? Let’s make everyone some spinach-filled smoothies. Yes, these have sugar in them too. But they also have spinach, so it’s a win. (Turn on a space heater while sipping these cold, but necessary, drinks!)
- Kid-Friendly Spinach Smoothies (allllll my picky kids drink these!)
- Parent Version (because we’re tough and need strength like Popeye)
If you drink these out of a Christmas Mug they taste better. Scientific fact.
Easy Meals for Christmas Break
Beyond the beloved smoothies, here are some meals my kids love and eat well when they play hard all day! By the way, have you found some good indoor places to take your kids to run around so they get their energy out even while it’s cold outside? Looking for ideas!
Here are meals our kids love:
3. Grilled Cheese Sandwiches with Tomato Soup
You can make grilled cheese in the waffle iron for a fun twist on this meal!
6. Chili with cheese, Fritos, and sour cream
Sometimes, my kids eat this as a dip with tortilla chips.
French Toast with fruit and sausage or bacon
Here’s hoping your Christmas break is enjoyable and relaxing as you spend great time with your family!
