My 2year old granddaughter loves pasta with tomato sauce, accompanied by garlic bread. It is such a simple meal, but I put loads of vegetables in the sauce, cook them down and she doesn't realise that she is eating "Yukky" vegetables.
I'm sure lots of grans and mums do this.
My daughter's fiancé is vegetarian, so it is ideal for him too.

Tortilla pizzas! My grandchildren love a tortilla topped with tomato, cheese and their favourite pizza toppings. It's a healthy meal & fills them up.

My grandson is easy to please with a "Egg sandwich please, Granny makes".

However, he is a now total convert to my Fancy French Toast with Bananas and Honey.

My grandson will eat anything really but his most favourite is crispy seaweed! I’m afraid I don’t like it but he loves it!

One loves his meat....chicken, fish, lamb with roast potatoes, Carrots snd broccoli. He is 5 and he is on about what is healthy and what not to eat and drink...a phase. He drinks only milk and water.

Fish pie - obviously made by granny!!!

Flapjacks, chocolate cake or Roast chicken. A super idea.

Chicken dippers.

My son gets his 4 and 8 year olds making bread, they love it!
My daughter's youngest son and his friends invited for tea enjoyed choosing their own toppings from bowls of alternatives for their pizzas. Then, around 9, he discovered sushi and became very good at making it, as did some of his friends!
All three of her sons like making mug cakes and mug meals from books in Christmas stockings. I like eating them!

Doreen5 Fri 21-Sep-18 12:11:04

Definitely Grandma's home made Flapjack!

jacalpad Fri 21-Sep-18 12:20:00

My grandsons love my sausage pie!

dirgni Fri 21-Sep-18 12:27:25

My Australian grandchildren just love a wrap with hummus and Sicilian olives. They make hummus with chick peas, tahini, lemon juice and sour cream whizzed up with seasoning. Yum!

Ours love plain cooked pasta with broccoli, washed raw spinach, mini cucumbers and chicken nuggets!

gran1 Fri 21-Sep-18 12:35:02

Lots of home grown cherry tomatoes mixed up with pasta -

Leah50 Fri 21-Sep-18 12:40:27

Home-made Macaroni Cheese (with steamed green beans, carrots & peas). They'd eat it every day.

Harris27 Fri 21-Sep-18 12:43:55

My grandkids would eat grannies fish finger sarnies everyday!
