Food for Kids

NOTE: I’m updating this page so you can find what you want more easily! Please bear with me as I juggle my time around looking after my family and maintaining this blog!

Want to cook for your kids but can’t find Asian recipes? Here are some of my favourite recipes for food for kids which I’ve tried with my children! Some of these were served when they were preschoolers, while some when they were toddlers – but you can modify for your children as you deem fit! 🙂

But first, before you browse and click on the thumbnails, you’d find that there are some overlaps and some recipes appear in a few sections – these aren’t duplicates but to facilitate easier search for you, especially when you want to zoom in on a particular type of dish.

For those with really little ones, you might be interested to read my diary of feeding my first child below. Other than that, feel free to browse through the list here. I only include recipes that I have fed my children in this section; for more recipes suitable for the family and adults, hop over to the Recipes for Family section.
