I'd love some crockpot ideas. Or I just got a griddle also but really any ideas or recipes will help! :-)

It would depend on the foods your child likes and dislikes. My kids aren't picky so I was able to just look up fun/easy lunch/dinner ideas and came up with about 30 more ideas.

Shepherds pie, yogurt with apples to dip. Pasta with Alfredo sauce, mashed potatoes(well, they think its mashed potatoes but its half potatoes half cauliflower or other squash, and if they asked about the color is tell them they were special potatoes.). Mac and cheese, rice .pilaf, chicken nuggets we made at home, fresh veggies in a lazy Susan with ranch or applesauce dip.

I have 4 boys and the oldest is 4. Two are picky, two are not. Lol. This is exhausting trying to find foods. Hahaha.

Sigh...I'm sick of it too. Lol but I still have a while before they can cook for themselves. Some of their favorites are chicken nuggets, pb and j, Mac and cheese, pizza. I need to try that mashed cauliflower!

My daughter doesnt like complex foods. She doesnt like food with more then two items in the. Like spaghetti with meat and veggies in it. She will eat it if its just noodles and sauce. My daughter also doesnt like cooked veggies, only raw.  What i did to get her eating was letting her help me with cooking. Like washing the veggies. Getting her to hand me the forks. Lil things like that. With some foods like mash potatoe and rice i have to feed it to her. Alot of people hate it that i do this. but its just mash potatoes and rice. I dont mind because the day she could feed herself, she hasnt let me feed her. She is very independent. So if i get to hand feed her for once then im going to enjoy it. Something i get to do awhole lot.
