But the truth is that we underestimate our kids. Kids will normally eat what we feed them. Sure, your child may have a penchant for chicken nuggets like every other tot in America, but that doesn't mean she won't enjoy other, nontraditional foods that are packed full of flavor.
Break out of the chicken nugget prison you're living in, and try one of these delicious kid food alternatives for dinner:
If your kid has just gotta have it, then baked chicken fingers are a much healthier choice than fast-food nuggets. "Spice" things up by serving a spicy dipping sauce instead of ketchup on the side.
Your kid can handle more than plain scrambled eggs in the morning — like this mouthwatering breakfast pizza omelet.
Kebabs make the perfect after-school snack or dinner side dish. Even better, they'll keep your kid entertained because they're so fun to eat.
Macaroni and cheese and pancakes? Say no more.
The panini is the upgraded grilled cheese, coming soon to a kids' menu near you.
This healthy variant on the traditionally bland quesadilla will have your kid screaming — for more.
Quiche is one of the easiest and most delicious things you can throw in your kid's hands on the way out the door in the morning.
Potato salmon cakes are better than frozen fish sticks any day of the week. Serve with ketchup, if they insist.
Dress this up as traditional spaghetti, and you won't hear any complaints.
No kid has ever turned down delectable nachos in the history of ever.
Serve this in good conscience, knowing you sneaked even more green stuff into your kid's meal.
