A really fun idea for feeding kids with out all the mess is to make a simple stir fry using lots of vegetables and either steamed rice or noodles, adding meat like chicken or pork is a option as well. These quick and healthy meals go into little to-go boxes served with a pair of chop sticks, the kids love it and think its a cool way to eat. Leftovers go right into the fridge or the boxes can even be packed for school lunch or after school sports. The meal is over and you have only one or two pans to clean. The boxes can be found at Asian markets or warehouse restaurant food & supply stores.
