Do you struggle getting your kids to eat what you make for dinner? I haven’t met a parent yet who doesn’t at some point! The dinners in this kid-friendly Aldi meal plan (2020) are tried and true family favorites that shouldn’t get many complaints from the peanut gallery.
A couple of quick notes, the salmon cakes are more time-consuming than some of the other dishes. If you’d prefer to swap them out for a different night, feel free. The days are just suggestions. Another option would be to roast the salmon the day before (while you’re roasting broccoli) and then you’d just have to prepare the patties the next day.
Feel free to swap out veggies to fit your preferences, but don’t be afraid to give something new a chance. We have another kid-friendly Aldi meal plan here if you need some more suggestions.
We’ve included a complete shopping list with prices, but know that price and availability is different from region to region. These prices are from the Barboursville, WV location in spring of 2020.
