  • Grilled cheese, turkey, ham, or other sandwiches. Chicken noodle soup, vegetable soup, alphabet soup, or other soups. Carrot or celery sticks, pita and hummus, bagel with cream cheese.

  • The other day I made something called "Chip chicken lollypops" Here is the recipe:

    They taste best after they've cooled a while. Use flavored chips (I used BBQ) or else I think they'd be bland...Dip them in ranch or ketchup! They're tasty and kids will love them.

  • Also you could make mini pizzas with biscuits, pizza sauce, and mozzarella cheese. I think a 3 year old would like that!

    Shells and Cheese
    Mac and Cheese
    Hot Dogs
    Tortilla and PB Sandwich
    Fruit Cocktail
    Cheese (as a side)
    Chicken Nuggets
    Tacos - I just prepare a taco and cut it up into smaller pieces
    Tuna Casarole
    Mashed Potatoes (Add browned hamburger, Peas, and Corn for a birdsnest dish)
