Who doesn’t love side dishes? They are a great addition to any lunch or dinner; they add something extra and make every meal that little bit more exciting. Having small side dishes available on the table is great for baby led weaning and getting your baby and your older children to try new things.
Finger foods make for ideal side dishes and are even better when they are easy to make and are baby friendly family food for everyone to enjoy.
It can be hard to make a meal that everyone will enjoy so adding side dishes gives a bit more choice for those days when your kids are being fussy and refusing to eat something they loved yesterday. Adding more variety means they are more likely to eat something so you can keep your kids healthy and well-fed. This Summer potato salad is an easy side dish and a total kid winner. It is appealing to the whole family, plus it’s simple enough that your kids can help you to make it, which means they’re more likely to eat it without complaining.
The recipe is sponsored by Dunnes Stores and is packed full of flavour using a mix of natural yogurt and sour cream to create a delicious creamy salad that kids love! It serves four adults and four children and only takes 30 minutes to make in total. You can buy all the ingredients in Dunnes Stores, and it’s so simple to make – get the kids involved mixing everything together, and they’ll be begging you to make it along side every meal.
