7 Kid-Proof Dinner Plans with Recipes & Shopping Lists Delivered to Your Inbox Every Week

BIRMINGHAM, Ala., May 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Trying to get off the fast-food dinner treadmill and climb on the cook-at-home bandwagon with nutritious meals that appeal even to your pickiest eaters? Online meal planning service eMeals comes to the rescue with a new Kid-Friendly Plan that delivers seven quick-cook dinner recipes to your smartphone or computer every week – all tailored to fit your kids' palates as well as yours. Result: fewer food tantrums, more clean plates and less "What's for dinner?" aggravation for you.

In addition to a weekly dinner plan, each installment includes prep and cook time for each meal (typically less than 30 minutes, so you can make it to your kids' soccer game or piano practice) plus a once-a-week shopping list designed to help you avoid extra runs to the grocery store.

Menus include everything from classic casseroles and meaty entrees to newer light-and-healthy ideas and even some crafty recipes meant for kids to do the cooking.  Recipes range from Slow-Cooker Spaghetti with Meat Sauce and Chicken Alfredo Pizza to Mini-Turkey Meat Loaves and side dishes like Carrot-Raisin Salad, Zucchini Coins and Cheese-Topped Broccoli that make healthy eating palatable to younger taste buds. Subscriptions begin at $5/month with 3-, 6- and 12-month options. More details and sample menus are available at http://www.emeals.com/meal-plans/kid-friendly/ 

The Kid-Friendly Plan is the latest addition to the eMeals service, which has helped hundreds of thousands of people save hours of meal planning drudgery as well as trim an average of $1,000 per year on the family grocery bill since 2003. Today, in addition to the new child-focused plan, eMeals offers:

  • Weekly Classic, Clean Eating, Paleo, Slow Cooker, Low Calorie, Low Fat, Portion Control, Low Carb, Gluten Free, Vegetarian, Natural and Organic, and Mediterranean programs
  • A choice of ALDI, Costco, Kroger, Publix, Safeway, Target, Walmart or Whole Foods meal plans, as well as the ability to shop any of eMeals' 50+ plans at any other grocery store
  • Plans for couples or families
  • The option to add weekly breakfast, lunch or dessert plans for just $3 or $4 a month
