This post has been updated since its original publishing in 2015 to include more resources than were first included.
Healthy kids food sites. Where to start?
‘Get kids eating healthy food.’ Google it. Or, try ‘healthy kids food blogs’. You’ll get a whole lot of results.
‘Veggie recipes for picky eaters’. Search this on Pinterest and you’ll have scads of results there too!
Obviously this is a topic that a lot of moms are interested in.
And there are many (many many) awesome resources out there, which is great, but also can be overwhelming, trying to figure out where to start.
I’m going to share some site here that are packed with great recipes and inspiration as a starting point.
I’ve divided these into 2 categories (+ a bonus) to make it easier to choose where you may want to begin. A few of the sites could have fit into either list, but I put them on one or the other based on where I thought they’d be most beneficial.
- Familiar and healthy
- Whole/Real foods
- +bonus, Baby + Toddler Recipes
There are other sites not listed here that are invaluable as well, so this is by no means a comprehensive list, but meant to be a great place to start if you’re feeling overwhelmed by the volume of information available.
For the Mom who wants to add nutrition to her family’s table, while staying with familiar ingredients. You aren’t looking to eliminate ingredients like gluten or dairy from your meals.
Similar to here at Tiny Tummy Tales, the ladies who develop these recipes all use foods that you can find at a typical grocery store. In general, you’ll find awesome recipes to increase veggies and fruits in your meals, and reduce refined flours/sugars.
Each site has its own take on healthy eating, but all are great places to start!

Whole/Real Foods- refined free
For the mom who is looking for delicious recipes that are (almost always) 100% refined sugar and refined flour free, & who doesn’t mind stopping in at a health food or specialty store to pick up occasional ingredients. Many of these ladies share gluten free, dairy free recipes, so for kids with allergies, these sites are great too.
As with the previous list, these sites all have their own take on healthy, but are all an awesome resource & starting point.

- Kiddilicious Kitchen
- Real food Liz
- Kitchen Stewardship
- Real food with Kids
