Simple Kid Friendly Meal Plan

Happy Monday to you. Have you made your meal plan for this week yet?

If you need a little mealtime inspiration, here’s what’s cooking at our house this week.

Menu plan with recipe links

This week I asked the kids to pick dinners out for us to eat. So all of these dinners should be pretty kid friendly.

They did a pretty good job of coming up with ideas. They also picked dinners we haven’t had for a while. Which just shows me I’m not great at varying what we are eating.

My son loves sloppy joes, tacos, and hamburgers so they were added to our menu. My daughter came up with the southern fried tofu, turkey pot pie and she also picked the southwest chicken skillet.

They both decided to add omelets since that is one of their dad’s favorite meals.

Lunches will be leftovers most days but I’ve also planned to make bagel sandwiches with bagels we found on sale and tuna melts too.

Breakfast is the same each day with toast and eggs. But on the weekends we have something a little special. And this week I’ll be making scones and waffles. Both can be made diary free and they are so good.

We will be eating quite well this week.

Here’s what’s on our Menu for this Week,


This turkey pot is the best. It's easy to assemble and turns out great each time.

Turkey Pot Pie and Salad

Tacos, Refried Beans, Chips, and Salsa

Southern Fried Tofu over Egg Noodles, and Salad

Sloppy Joes, Baked Fries, and Salad

Omelets, Hash Browns, and Toast

Southwest Chicken Skillet, Salad, and Fruit

Hamburgers with Baked Fries


Leftovers most days

Bagel Sandwiches, Chips, and Fruit

Tuna Melts, Grapes, and Salad


I don’t think you can ever have too many breakfast recipes. This chocolate chip scone recipe is one of our favorites. These chocolate chip sones have no heavy cream, in fact they are dairy free scones. Another plus is you can make them in the skillet, so you don’t have to heat up the house on warmer days to bake them.

Toast with Eggs

Chocolate Chip Scones, Eggs, and Sausage

Waffles, Eggs, and Sausage

  1. Ooh, that turkey pot pie looks delicious!

    I made a pork loin roast for the first time this week, since they were on sale at the grocery store. I roasted it in the oven and it turned out great…even the kids loved it. I was able to get 2 roasts out of one piece of meat, so I’m going to try your slow cooker recipe for the other one in a couple of weeks.

    Hope you have a great week!

  2. Thanks for the ideas! They are practical, affordable and healthy! I browse the Internet FOREVER trying to find reasonable meals that my 2 and 4 year old will actually eat and might be able to sneak in some veggies and I’m impressed with your meal plans! Thanks for sharing!
