Anyone with children knows that typically you have a few minutes with their attention span before something shinier happens. This is also true with their appetite! Bento style family meals have become the norm in many houses. Today I’m sharing with you one of my favorite bento style family meals guaranteed to clear plates with no complaints!
I have learned to adapt my grown-up meals into smaller versions to encourage my girls to not only try new things but also to simply eat their meals without complaint! I’m not willing to sacrifice my love for good food for picky kids so we make adjustments. It’s all in the compromise!
Our little family is always on the go. If it’s not my husband with work events, it’s one of the girls having an activity or myself running out for a blog event. Janes products are easy to make, ready in no time and the entire family loves them!
This is why our bento style family meal recipe calls for Janes Pub Style Chicken Nuggets. Janes Pub Style Chicken Nuggets are made with 100% white meat and are one of our favourite meals that taste amazing and can actually keep up with our busy lives.
For almost 50 years, Janes has been providing Canadians with quick and easy meal solutions. I ate Janes Pub Style Chicken Nuggets as a young girl with my two brothers on the way to the hockey rink or ball field. This truly makes Janes a no-brainer go-to option for a quick convenient meal that my girls will love too!
Today’s bento style family meal recipe is Chicken Cordon Bleu Poppers in a bento style meal format using Janes Pub Style Chicken Nuggets! My girls will eat almost anything so long as they’re given options. We plan accordingly and make a smaller portion of all sides. The deal is, they can pick what they want but they must have at least two of the three sides!
Our bento style family meal consisted of twice-fried French fries made in our Breville deep fryer, veggies & dip, a salad and of course, the Chicken Cordon Bleu Poppers! There was no complaining, no negotiations just plain old fashion eating! When life is busy and it always is, a dinner ready in under 30 minutesunder 30 minutes followed by a happy meal no complaining, ending with an easy clean up makes for a happy family! Janes Pub Style Chicken Nuggets for the win!
