5 Fun Recipes Kids Will Love

2. Mini-Pizzas


When I was a child, my mom would make the most delicious fruit pizza by using sugar cookie dough as “pizza dough,” baking it into a giant pizza-sized cookie, and then covering it with cream cheese and pieces of fruit. It was an absolutely delicious dessert.

Now you can make a healthier, mini-version of this treat by using whole-grain English muffins instead of the sugar cookie. Just toast an English muffin, spread cream cheese on it, and place cut-up pieces of fruit into the cream cheese to make it look like a tiny, fruity pizza.

Kids will love the novelty of having a mini-pizza for breakfast, and you can feel good about getting some healthy fruit and whole grains into them.

These also double as an afternoon snack or dinner if you use marinara or pizza sauce instead of the cream cheese, and a sprinkle of shredded mozzarella. If you can get some mushrooms and green peppers on them as well, even better!
