Do I have the only kids who would rather eat with their hands than with a fork, knife or spoon? Especially when they're ravenous they will come to the kitchen table and dig right in grabbing food and inhaling it as fast as possible. There are some foods that seem like they should be eaten with utensils, but they’re honestly a lot more fun to enjoy using fingers like chicken nuggets, pizza balls and especially many breakfast foods.

I’ve gotten to the point that I won’t even put out silverware in the morning when I’m making waffles, french toast or even pancakes as the kids prefer it when I fill little dishes with maple, honey or fresh raspberry syrup for them to dunk right into saving me the trouble of washing anything other than their plates.

Pancake Tacos

I love it when they get extra creative with their food creating new ways to eat what seems like a straightforward food. Kenya hadn’t been feeling great a few weeks ago and was sticking to the BRAT diet: bananas, rice, applesauce and toast. Whenever the kids have been feeling nauseous or a fever we stick to these basic foods, so I always try to keep a bunch of GoGo squeeZ Organic Applesauce in the pantry. They are easy to take on the go, come in multiple flavors and are fun for the kids to eat!

On this occasion, Kenya sat at the table after a day without eating from being sick. He sat staring blankly ahead with little interest in the leftover whole wheat pancakes I had placed in front of him. The next time I turned around he had filled the pancakes with applesauce squeezes calling them “Pancake Tacos”. He looked just like he was at a Mexican restaurant, tilting his head slightly to the side making sure that not a drop of the creamy filling dripped out of his “taco”. First he would suck a big gulp out of the pouch and then squirt a big more inside.

Pancake Tacos

The best part is that he immediately appeared to feel better as he ate with his hands, quickly filling his belly. I watched the joy and pleasure on his face eating a food the way he wanted to and probably ended up enjoying it even more. No utensils needed!

Pancake Tacos

 

His creation has become a regular breakfast treat. The myriad of GoGo squeeZ applesauce and yogurt flavors like Apple Berry, Apple Cinnamon, Strawberry and Banana Yogurtz go great go perfectly with any pancake recipe you make. They’re also great for breakfast, to put in school lunch or as an after school snack on the go!

    My kids will eat almost anything that involves eating with their hands. I never thought of making breakfast tacos, it’s a great idea. It would be quick for school breakfasts.

    Great idea I haven’t thought of! My daughter also prefers to eat with her hands and I get criticized for allowing her to do so. My focus is on her eating, not having the best table manners. This is perfect for her!

    I going to have to get the weelicious cook book now. Awesome tips and I’m so excited to make pancake tacos! Simple and delicious. Never would have thought of putting the go squeeze in top. Haven’t tried those as a matter of fact but my family does like to try new things. Well, maybe not my 4 year old who just became incredibly picky. But me, my husband and 1 year old are!
