You know how much we love vegetarian recipes with big flavors and exciting new ideas, but that doesn’t always make it easy to find vegetarian meals for kids.

60 Vegetarian Recipes for Kids - Make Mealtimes Fun! | Hurry The Food Up

The issue is that kids tend to prefer familiar foods and simple flavors over spicy Indian sauces or complex flavors that grown ups love.

While that doesn’t go for all kids, we wanted to help parents out by coming up with a list of kid-friendly vegetarian recipes. (Or recipes for the vegetarian university students out there looking for comfort food, we won’t tell).

This compilation of vegetarian recipes for kids covers every meal from breakfast recipes, like pancakes or scrambled eggs, to lunch and dinner recipes, like cucumber sandwiches or pizza.

We also have a list of vegetarian lunch ideas for school, if that’s more what you’re looking for.

Why are kids picky eaters?

First things first, being a picky eater as a kid is totally normal.

BUT it can be hard for parents to find recipes for picky eaters, especially if you’re trying to stick to a vegetarian or vegan diet.

Often, kids are just naturally more sensitive to taste, scent or texture and prefer familiar foods. If not, it might be a way to gain control over mealtimes.

That’s why we’ve included twists on some classics like vegan nuggets to replace chicken nuggets, and veggie burgers to replace beef burgers, in this list of vegetarian recipes for kids.

Here’s our list of vegetarian meals for kids

We want to make mealtimes a little smoother for any vegetarian family out there, so if that’s what you’re looking for, read on!
