Kid Friendly Summer Meal Ideas
With the long days of summer in full swing, we know how hard it can be to find tasty meals and snacks that the whole family will love and enjoy. Luckily, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve compiled our best ideas to satisfy hungry kids, perfect for anytime of the day. Simple to make and even better to eat!
Happy Hot Dogs
Tasty and reliable, the hot dog never fails to keep kids cravings at bay. Enjoy a Gourmet Hot Dog Bun with ketchup or load it up with some veggies. This fun meal idea lets kids create and enjoy their perfect summer sidekick.
Grilled Pizza Goodness
Using COBS Bread pizza bases you can create a multitude of pizza options. Why not get the kids involved too?! Get them to choose their own toppings and even make it themselves. It makes for a fun (and tasty) family activity night. Our pizza bases also come in mini sizes perfect for little tummies. No time to cook? Our ready to eat Mini Pizzas are made fresh in store every day and are available in a variety of flavours. Consider creating a pizza platter so that everyone gets their favourite flavour.
An obvious choice, 100% kid approved, are meatball sliders made with our delicious Italian Herb Foccacia. Simply place two squares of focaccia either side of a mouth-watering meatball and you have yourself an endless platter of snacks ideal for kids who are on the go.
Perfect for breakfast, lunch, or dinner; sausage and egg sliders will curb any appetite using your favourite COBS Bread Bun, Loaf or Dinner Roll as your base. To make summer life even easier, consider making a batch at a time to place in the freezer and shoot them straight into the oven when needed.
You can never go wrong with a grilled cheese sandwich especially when the summer days are long and busy. The combination of fresh baked bread, creamy butter and yummy cheese is too hard to resist. Add some avocado to take it up a notch and get some green goodness into growing kids!
Ice Cream, You Scream
Not forgetting about dessert…what kid doesn’t love ice cream and boy do we have a delicious recipe up our sleeves. This No Churn Strawberry Passion Fruit Ice Cream takes less than 15 mins to make (and to eat)! The kids will love helping make this too as long as they have the patience to let it freeze! A colourful addition to any summer dinner table.
