Carrot, Corn, and Butternut Squash Soup
Warm, hearty soup loaded with vegetables that your child will slurp up within minutes (if the adults in your family don't do it first!). Seriously guys, my kids have gotten into a rut, where they only eat pasta or rice. I finally tried out this soup and poured it into mugs for them to drink. I'm not sure if it was the yummy flavors of the soup, or that they got to drink it out of a mug, or some combination, but they drank it right up. THIS IS A KEEPER!!!

Homemade Fig Perserve
Best homemade fig preserve ever! Serve with morning toast or for kids lunches! Better than store bought!
The most delicious meatballs you will ever have--period. My twins are at a picky age right now, they refuse most everything I make them. I was ecstatic when my son ate 4 of these, and my daughter had 3. The only problem was my husband kept wanting to eat them, and I had to keep reminding him we were saving them for the kiddos!

Orzo with veggies/cheese
My toddler lived off some variation of this for about a year of his life. This is great for all kids and a nice way to get some veggies in. I found it worked great for him because he had issues with textures. We often made a vegetable soup and boiled pasta at the beginning of the week and would have it on hand to make this meal in a bind all week. Also could serve the soup alone, and it was also a good adult meal.
