Any parent knows that at one point or another in the raising of your children, you go through a phase where they only eat a number of items. It’s funny though, because while each of my kids has their own preferences, they definitely have a limited number of things that they are willing to eat at any time. Do we get lucky and have that random day where one (or more) of them are open to trying something new? Sure. But for the most part…
Tucker’s favorite go-to’s are peanut butter sandwiches (no jelly!), cucumbers, chips & salsa, strawberries and simple desserts like chocolate chip cookies or vanilla ice cream. Lexie likes peanut butter & jelly sandwiches, bananas, cheese sandwiches with mustard, strawberry milk and grown-up type desserts like blueberry muffins or key lime pie. Lilah? She likes cheese sandwiches with mayonnaise, bagels with cream cheese, macaroni with cheese (um, I think we see a trend here…cheese!) and anything chocolate.
The one thing they all have in common though? Chicken nuggets.
So when it comes to making lunch or dinner for my kids I just may have to mount a KFC Popcorn “Nugget-vention”, who’s with me?
Serving the same old thing is sometimes tiring, and making sure that what the kids are eating is healthy as well is always important. Good thing KFC’s Popcorn Nuggets are 100% white meat chicken. I might have even popped a few on my way home from picking up our dinner, because they are also the perfect size to nibble on-the-go.
These little bad boys are the perfect size to do a number of things…
- Having dinner that has an Asian flair to it but your kids are shy to try stir fry or sushi? Make KFC Popcorn Nugget sushi. A few flour tortilla shells, dipping sauces of your choice, a little lettuce and maybe even some cheese (for Lilah, of course) and you’ll have little “sushi” inspired pinwheels for the kids.
- Grilling out and skipping the hot dogs for the kids? How about some KFC Popcorn Nugget kabobs instead? Grab a handful of skewers, some Popcorn Nuggets, cubed cheese, and grapes and you’re done in a matter of minutes. I don’t know about yours, but my kids always love eating anything served on a stick!
- Make movie night more fun (and filling!) when you serve KFC Popcorn Nuggets alongside your popcorn and favorite candy! We do family movie nights almost every Friday night in our house and I’m sure the kids would love this fun alternative to our usual pizza & movie pastime.
We had fun taste-testing our very own KFC Popcorn Nuggets in order to come up with some of these ideas, but what we really can’t wait for is putting these ideas in motion the next time we grab KFC to go.
