If your kids will only eat chicken nuggets, mac 'n' cheese or PB + J sandwiches, then cooking meals they'll actually eat can be a challenge. Encourage them to venture out a bit with these four recipes the whole family will enjoy. Better yet, get the kids involved in the cooking process so they know what's going to be on their plates tonight!

Sloppy Joes

This recipe from the Food Network is a classic homestyle meal. Ask the little kids to get the veggies out of the refrigerator; older kids can help stir the meat and assemble the sandwiches. This is a great way to get some veggies in their diets!
