Like most kids, mine think eating with their fingers is too much fun. So I tend to serve them bite-sized foods that I know they’ll want to eat. Amazing how many dishes you can make into tiny servings. Foods like zucchini pizza, granola, buffalo chicken, rice and even French toast all roll up into little morsels for kids to munch on. These recipes and more featured below are some of the most yummy ideas we’ve seen around to get your kids more into eating than picking apart what’s on their plate. What are some of your favorite bite-sized foods to feed kids?
