Easy kids' dinner recipes
It's not always easy to keep children entertained through the holidays or on rainy weekends, so we've compiled some of our favourite dinner recipes which will encourage them to get them involved in the kitchen and learn some useful culinary skills. Not only will the kids keep busy, enjoy making new dishes and get to feel grown up, they can also help you with the dinner prep and get food on the table faster - what a result. Teenagers can even make some of these recipes unsupervised, once they've mastered some basic kitchen skills.
We've included lots of veg-packed dishes in our easy dinner recipes collection, so you know your little people are well on their way to getting their five-a-day.
