Dinner Ideas Dinner Ideas

Hand Held Meals for Tiny Fingers

Posted by   + Show Post


Kids love eating with their hands, and it's the best way to get them to eat at dinnertime. The best handheld meal is the sandwich or similarly the wrap. I think that goes without saying, but there are other options as well, such as tacos, taquitos, quesadillas and burritos.  Here are a few ideas for little hands that will make dinnertime a snap.

Bean and cheese mini burritos with creamy salsa dipping sauce

Mashed potato and meat loaf wraps

Mini hamburger sliders with a side of tots

Breakfast for dinner wrap featuring hashbrowns, eggs and low fat cheese

Moms, share your hand held dinner ideas here!

 I don't have any little ones running around my house anymore, but I do make handheld foods.....quesadillas, mini-pitas with yummy stuff inside, panini sandwiches.

I am going to buy some pita bread and make sandwiches. My grandparents did this a lot and we loved them!

These sound like fun ones that even my daycare kiddos would love. Quesadillas are a huge hit here and the kids are always thinking up different ways to try them. Sliders, wraps, etc.
