    These are great kid friendly recipes. We always try incorporating easy but healthy meals that children can enjoy. If you have any suggestions how to use our Mom Made Meatballs, we would greatly appreciate it. For more info about our healthy Meatball Bites, see here http://www.mommadefoods.com/our-foods/bites.asp

    I think one of the best things we can do for our children is to teach them how to make delicious healthy meals. However, as there is a preponderance of proof that animal products and oil is NOT HEALTHY I would like to see mention made of how to substitute for dairy milk with non dairy milk, eggs with flax seed meal or chia seeds, butter and oil can either be eliminated or substituted with water for saute or applesauce, banana or pureed prunes in cooking even using organic tofu is much more healthy than any of the animal products. It’s time to start them out early because it is fun and fulfilling to make healthy meals and snacks. Oh yes, and fathers are also great at cooking and teaching the kids. Thank you.

    I Believe that every kid should take some learning lesson from their mother. and watch the way she cook’s. it would give them a whole new subject to know what to put in a recipe.
