Five Meals Kids Can Make in Minutes

sign up for the momlogic newsletter Tweet This

Need a break from the daily dinner grind in 2009? Introduce your kids to these easy and inexpensive do-it-yourself dinners from chef and mom Susannah Locketti.


Susannah taught both of her kids how to safely use the toaster and microwave by age six. The microwave is a great way to teach kids about numbers while the toaster fosters independence in the kitchen.

Have your kids top a toasted whole grain English muffin or whole wheat tortilla with red sauce and mozzarella cheese and tell them to pop it in the microwave for 30 to 45 seconds.

Meatball Sub
Have the kids microwave leftover turkey meatballs until warm. Show them how to layer the meatballs in a multigrain roll with a slice of deli cheese and some carrot sticks.

Pasta with Broccoli
Keep a bag of cooked pasta on hand in a Ziploc baggie with oil. The kids just have to add it to a bowl, top with fresh or frozen broccoli, sauce and microwave until warm.

Hawaiian Quesadillas
Have the kids top a whole wheat tortilla with deli ham, shredded Mexican cheese and sliced pineapple. Microwave until the cheese melts and fold over.

Triple Decker PB&J with Bananas
Using whole wheat bread, have your kids layer and divide the sandwich up. Serve with sliced bananas and a cup of milk for an easy dinner they'll love.

Yeah, all good ideas, but not enough veggies in there.
