A Kid’s Meal – Earth’s Best Baked Chicken Nuggets & Lettuce Wraps

Last night, Scott was off at church, I mowed the yard, and the kids cleaned and vacuumed the Armada. So this seemed like the perfect night to surprise my kids with one of my Whole Foods purchases from the other day- chicken nuggets! Earth’s Best Baked Chicken Nuggets were on sale at Whole Foods, I had 2 store coupons, and 1 manufacturer’s coupon making these a deal I couldn’t resist! The kids LOVED them and are thrilled that I have another box in the freezer. Here are Earth’s Best Baked Chicken Nuggets ingredients (and these are the reasons I’m okay serving this as a dinner “treat”):

Chicken Meat, Water, Contains Less than 2% of the Following: Evaporated Cane Juice, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, Rice Starch, Sea Salt, Spice. Battered & Breaded with: Whole Wheat Flour, Water, Wheat Flour, Corn Starch, Evaporated Cane Juice, Sea Salt, Leavening (Baking Soda, Cream of Tartar), Garlic Powder, Yellow Corn Flour, Yeast, Onion Powder, Spice, Sunflower Oil, Extractive of Turmeric. Breading Set in Expeller Pressed Canola Oil and/or Soybean Oil and/or Safflower Oil.

Along side these nuggets, I served large romaine leaves and our container of pre-cut veggies. My kids have recently begun to create their own lettuce wraps with fresh veggies and dressing, and it seems to be a fun “trick” to get them to eat more vegetables. A fast and easy weeknight dinner (served on paper plates 😉  ) – a need we all have on those crazy nights!
