Easy and Kid-Friendly Budget Recipes for Fussy Eaters That the Whole Family Will Enjoy

Fussy eating is a huge issue in many UK family households and trying to find recipes for fussy eaters whatever their age isn’t easy or normally on budget. Keep reading for fussy toddler meals and picky eater recipes for adults.

Eating the same food day in and day out just so your kids eat something isn’t good for the morale of the whole family. You can only eat chicken nuggets for so many meals, right?

Regardless of the fussy eater is you or your children, finding meals that everyone eats not only saves you valuable cooking time but can also shave money off your food bill.

Putting healthy meals aside right now, just getting everyone eating one meal would be a real achievement, especially if you live in a household where it’s normal to cook three or even four different meals.

We all know that when a baby starts to wean they will eat anything and everything. It’s built in. But when they start to realize what they are eating then comes the trouble. Most start at around eighteen months and start to reject food.

It doesn’t matter how to weaned or what you fed them. Kids (and some adults, including me) are just fussy.

This is totally normal. Nothing you’ve done or said to your kids has made them fussy. We’re all different and like different tastes and textures.

If you are looking for more ways to feed your family for less then have a look at:

Fussy eater tips

Here are my top 5 tips for getting your toddler fussy eater or older child to try more food.

Let them pick a meal for the week

When you write your meal plan and shopping list ask the whole family for one meal idea each. Yep, it may involve you eating a couple of very beige meals a week but the agreement is that everyone tries each other meals.

Meal plan on a budget

If you’re struggling to meal plan on a budget, then read our top tips on how you can halve your food shop here. Watch those changing taste buds. As parents, we all fall into the trap of thinking that our kids like something because they loved it last week. Kids’ taste buds change so keep offering meals that they once hated to see if they now like them.

Kids love snacking

Anything not eaten can be boxed up into leftovers and eaten by the adults for lunch or frozen for another time. Here’s how we reduce our waste and budget by eating everything we can.Kids love snacking. So let them. Put a bowl of healthy snacks on the side and let them decide. Pack it with a few already-loved healthy alternatives and add some new ones too. Let them have the choice. As long as they are trying new foods then the plan is working!

Eat at the right time

Watch the signs. There’s no point trying to get your kids to eat a new meal on a Friday night after they’ve been at school all week or right before the baby’s nap time. Pick your battle. Try a relaxed family meal on the weekend when everyone can chill out.

Add one food they love

Try adding one food they love and three they don’t to a meal and letting everyone pick their own.

We have a huge selection of budget family recipes here for you to try.Make it fun. However old your kids are try making new foods fun. For little ones, could you make the new food into a face or cut it into their favourite animal?

For older kids, could you get them involved in the cooking? Maybe you challenge them to a cook-off one night a week and the family votes?

Have a look at these meal ideas if you are struggling to fill up your meal plan:

Meals for Fussy Eaters

As parents with a fussy eater, meal times are a real challenge especially if you need to keep the cost of your food bill down and stick to a budget.

Shopping and then meal times can become stressful for everyone and start to have an impact on how you all see buying food.


It’s ok if someone in the house is fussy. It’s not down to bad behaviour or being awkward. For many kids, it’s about learning what’s safe to eat and what’s not. For adults, it’s about having some independence and choice on what we eat.

You don’t have to let your eating habits affect your budget. Yes, sophisticated meals may be off the menu but having family-friendly recipes that you all know and love is key to getting any fussy eater to try new food.

What the * means

If a link has an * by it, then this means it is an affiliate link and helps S4SM stay free for all. If you use the link, it may mean that we receive a very small payment. It will not cost you anymore that it would normally.

You shouldn’t notice any difference and the link will never negatively impact the product. The items we write about are NEVER dictated by these links. We aim to look at all products on the market. If it isn’t possible to get an affiliate link, then the link, or product is still included in the same way, just with a non-paying link.

Sharing is caring!
