Kid-Friendly Veg ideas needed for non-veg kids

I am going to be spending the summer babysitting for 4 little girls aged between 6 and 2. I'm watching them every week day and will be providing breakfast, 2 snacks, lunch and a dinner. I'm not used to cooking/providing food for kids and have no idea what to serve. I will not cook meat of any kind. I want to provide some variety as I'm watching them for two months and want to do the same things every day.

So I guess what I'm asking is what do you feed your kids, and if you've provided Omni kids with vegetarian/vegan meals what have been hits?

A favourite of mine is vegan chikn' nuggets and apple sauce, vegan mini pizzas and maybe spaghetti and marinara sauce with bread sticks and a small veggie salad.... breakfast fruit smoothies and fresh fruits made into kabobs and oatmeal with a happy raisin and apple slice face ! A good veggie kid friendly cookbook may be quite helpful perhaps take them shopping through the produce section and pick some fresh veggies to try .... Good luck!

Animals should be loved not eaten !

Hi calliemae, there are a lot of good ideas for veggie kids in the 'What did you feed your kids today?' thread:

Also check out our Veggie Kids board on Pinterest:

Hope that helps!

Veggie soft tacos. Lettuce, tomatoe, avocado, other fresh veggies and beans on a soft taco shell with ANY sort of salsa. I like mango salsa but for some reason that doesn't exist where I live and people look at me like Ive lost it when I suggest it.
It's GOOD. Not spicy at all.

Vegan pasta salad!! We make a big batch of it when the weather warms up, and takes us 2-3 days to eat it.

Anytime I think I'm perfect, I remember that my cousin lives on an island, and I've never walked over to visit her.

Roasted veggies! (Did someone already say this? ) All kinds: butternut squash, eggplant, carrots, asparagus, cauliflower, whatever. EV olive oil, some salt and mild spices (for kids) and then a squeeze of fresh citrus after cooking. I've fed lots of kids this, and have some dipping sauces, they love them because the veggies get so sweet. I roast the heck out of them cut in small mouth friendly pieces, so they are easy to eat and sweet, sweet, sweet, with the tang of citrus. I like lime on some things, kids like orange on top also. You can have some sesame seeds in there too.
