Giada de Laurentiis Recipes Your Kids will Love

The struggle is real when it comes to finding recipes for dishes your kids will love just as much as you do. No one knows that better than Giada de Laurentiis, who has been whipping up meals for her daughter Jade for the past nine years.
“When Jade was younger she loved anything in a cupcake form,” Giada says, revealing that she’d enlist her daughter’s help in preparing the food in order to get her more interested. “It’s also a texture thing for young children. They can hold things and touch them and put them in their mouths while they’re making them. The more colors you add to that variety of choices the better. It’s like doing an art project, but it’s an edible art project.”
Want to invoke some edible art projects of your own into your child-friendly kitchen? Here are some of Giada’s top versatile and kid-friendly recipes that are sure to impress even the pickiest of palettes.
