While International School Manila Tuition Fees may take a toll on our financials, our kid’s meal doesn’t mean it has to! Check out these recipes that are sure to be not only healthy but yummy as well.

Breakfast Granola Bars

There are times when your child wakes up way beyond the alarm clock and the only way to avoid the tardy slip is to skip breakfast. Do remember that breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day so to solve this problem, why not give him or her a granola bar just before he or she steps outside the house? The greatest thing about granola bars is that you can interchange the ingredients! If your child isn’t too fond of the dark chocolate chips in this recipe, you can switch them out for semi-sweet or if they don’t like almonds, peanuts or cashews will do perfectly fine. These can also be a great mid-day snack, perfect for kids who are in school for just half the day.

Pizzatinis

One of the favourite easy dishes of any kid (or teenager or adult) has got to be pizza. Pizza can come in so many flavours with such odd names attached to ‘em, ranging from Capricciosa to Bianca and to one of the all time favourites, Hawaiian. Some of these names are because of the pizza looks. For example, Bianca means white and as this pizza has no red sauce it is quite white therefore the name. Or some, because of the place of origin or simply named after the person of inspiration (Pizza Margherita was named after Queen Margherita of Savoy). What we have here is a delicious mini pizza we have renamed pizzatini which your kids can help make and will surely enjoy come lunch time.

Crispy Chicken Nuggets

Did you hear the story of the Stacey Irvine, the girl who ate nothing but chicken nuggets for 15 years? The young Englishwoman loves processed chicken nuggets from fast food establishments so much, it was basically her only food since the age of two! Because of this alarming diet, she had to be rushed to the hospital due to nutrition and anaemia problems. With this worry, you need not worry as this is homemade and it is sure to be healthier than the chicken nuggets Ms. Irvine ate! With a Panko coating instead of your ordinary breadcrumbs, these are sure to be some of the crispiest chicken nuggets your child has ever eaten. In addition, these are quite easy to make. If you do not have cooking oil spray, rubbing down the rack with a bit of oil will do. Simply pair your chicken nuggets with white rice and you are good to go!

Green Mean Pesto Pasta

Noodles and pasta. Hardly a week passes by that a child does not eat a dish composed of either of the two. It can be slathered in tomato sauce or with shrimp based sauce. For this recipe, we chose the green pesto sauce. The kids may smirk and sneer when they see it because after all, it isn’t exactly the red sauce they are used to. Tell your children that it is made from monster’s blood (or something along that line) and for sure they will be showing off their packed lunch, telling their classmates they are eating monster blood.  Super cool.

Kids can be finicky about food but once you teach them how to appreciate different dishes, they just might grow up to be chefs or culinary connoisseurs.
