I don’t know about you but sometimes getting our kids to eat well is a job all in itself. This is one area that I fell short in with my boys. I will admit I am no cook, in fact I would say I’m allergic to it LOL! At least my husband would probably say that is the case. I can make a mean Halloween costume or design a blog but when it comes to cooking I absolutely DO NOT enjoy it. Strangely enough despite my boys dislike of all things good my daughter loves all types of foods with fruits and veggies at the top of her list.
We often are on the move and trying to get these good foods into her and even myself is not always easy. When I do happen to cook a meal she will devour the broccoli, green beans, or whatever vegetable I cook. One thing I’ve noticed is it is not always easy to find healthy quick food for her. With many brands of frozen dinners I’ve never food a frozen meal that even remotely seems healthy. That is until Kidfresh! I’m happy to be fortunate enough to live in area where Kidfresh is being released. Right now Kidfresh can be found at certain Publix stores in Florida and Georgia. If you are in either of these two states you can find out if a Publix near you carries the Kidfresh Meals.
Kidfresh currently has several different meal choices: Totally Twisted Pasta and Meatballs, Rainbow Rice + Chicken, Easy Cheesy Ravioli, Spaghetti Loops Bolognese, Muy Cheesy Quesadillas, and Wagon Wheels Mac and Cheese. Our Publix carried four of these and I look forward to hopefully seeing all six on the shelves soon. Honey picked out four of the meals, though there were four choices she is not a huge Mac n’ Cheese fan so she bypassed that choice and picked the Totally Twisted Pasta and Meatballs, (2) Spaghetti Loops Bolognese, and the Rainbow Rice and Chicken.
So the question is which one did she prefer? And did she care for the meals?
Honey has only tried two of the meals so far the Totally Twisted Pasta and Meatballs and Spaghetti Loops Bolognese. She said she wished she would have gotten two of the meatball meal instead of the spaghetti loops. She likes them both but she is a huge meatball fan so I was kind of surprised she didn’t choose two of those in the first place. She finished her Totally Twisted Pasta and Meatballs and said it was, “yummy!” There are many things I love about the Kidfresh Meals. One of them is that my daughter is almost always “super starving” (as she likes to say) the minute she comes home from school. My husband usually picks her up and brings her home. With the Kidfresh Meals, which by the way are reasonably priced at $3.50 each, he can pop them in the microwave and feed her something healthy so she doesn’t snack on chips or cookies.
Nutritional Information of the Totally Twisted Pasta and Meatballs
I love how they can sneak in the veggies, though it is not necessary to sneak anything for my veggie loving daughter, into their meals. This is great for any kid that doesn’t like to eat their vegetables. I definitely think Kidfresh Meals are a step above the rest. What appeals to me most is the nutritional value the meals have for my children. Before we came across the Kidfresh Meals my daughter use to eat my own Lean Cuisine’s and other low calorie meals. Not that she needs the low calorie the truth is she loves them. We love the ease of preparing something quick when we are in a pinch.
Another use for the Kidfresh Meals is side dishes. I can see popping one of the meals in the microwave and serving half of it up with my main dish of chicken, steak, etc. This would be a quick and easy and more importantly tasty option for my daughter.
I’m excited that Kidfresh is giving three readers the opportunity to try Kidfresh for themselves for free.
