Quick Kid-Friendly Dinner Recipes the Entire Family Will Love

The definition of “kid-friendly” certainly varies from child to child, but there are a few common threads you’ll find among recipes that appeal to families. First, they’re easy for parents to throw together, and, in some cases, for kids to help out with preparing.
