One of the best ways to get kids to eat is to make dinner a little more fun. When my boys were younger, they would eat almost anything I put in front of them. I used to brag to all my friends about all the different foods that they would eat. As they got older, they started to get picky about the foods that I would serve.
I still serve them the same foods, I just change how I present them. It’s crazy how they’ll eat roasted potatoes and zucchini when I put them on a stick! I pick my battles and if putting veggies on a stick and giving it a fun name makes dinnertime fun…then that’s what we do!
That’s how my “Fishing Poles” came about! The best part is that you can really use any roasted veggie and make it your own. I pair the roasted veggies with Mrs. Paul’s Fish Sticks and voila…a fun dinner that the kids will enjoy!
I bet you guys stocked up on Mrs. Paul’s Fish Sticks with the recent BOGO sale. Just pull out a box and grab some of your favorite veggies and you can have a fun meal on the table in a flash. Since you can roast the veggies at the same time that you cook the fish you dinner prep is very minimal. Serve with some Birds Eye Super Sweet Corn and a side salad and your prep time is maybe 5 – 10 minutes total!
Remember, Mrs. Paul’s Fish Sticks are a source of protein and are made with 100% real fish. My whole family loves them – they taste great and they are so simple to prepare. If you are looking for more ways to make dinner fun, check out these other tasty recipes –
