Healthiest Foods to Barbeque With Your Child

summer bbq

Summer is here and you know what that means – barbeque season! This is a new way to get children to try foods they may have rejected in the past. While a child may have rejected shrimp linguini, barbequed shrimp skewers might provide a new avenue for a child.

Whether you and your children are relaxing in the backyard, camping or on a picnic; you are going to want to barbeque up some tasty treats for the whole family to enjoy!


Turkey Burgers

Burgers are a barbeque go-to for many people ready to fire up the grill. If you know your children already love burgers, why not try a healthier alternative with turkey burgers?


Grilled Corn

A fantastic meal, grilled corn on the cob is a delicious source of antioxidants and fibre. It’s also a child-friendly meal that is fun to eat!



These are yet another barbeque staple and there are plenty of healthy variations you can play around with: vegetables, chicken and shrimp. We recommend mixing in vegetables for added flavour if you are choosing a meat-based skewer. Similar to corn on the cob, skewers are fun to eat and your children will love them.


Chicken Sausage

Use a lean-meat sausage and toss in some charred vegetables for a healthy alternative to hot dogs. Delicious and child-friendly, what’s not to love? Try this recipe out for dinner!


Grilled Peaches with Frozen Yogurt

Don’t forget dessert! That’s right – grill some peaches over the barbeque and pair them with some frozen yogurt for a healthier barbequed treat.


Is this getting you excited for barbeque season? For added fun, encourage your children to help prepare the meal by getting the marinade ready, bringing tools out to the grill or choosing the perfect recipe!
