This Roasted Broccoli Tomato Soup is just what you need to help those picky eaters venture out of their comfort zone!

Let’s talk picky eaters shall we?  It’s always a pleasure partnering with Campbell’s Soup to bring you recipes and tips! This post is in partnership with Campbell’s Soup. All thoughts and opinions are 100% my own. Thank you for supporting the brands that make Picky Palate possible.

We have all dealt with kids who are very limited as to what they’ll eat either in our own family or someone you know deals with this situation.  It is a problem that so many of us deal with on a daily basis and can get exhausting.  I’ve had quite a bit of experience myself.  As a young child I vividly remember being extremely choosy on the foods I would even look at.  I’m happy to say as an adult I enjoy about every kind of food.  With that said, my two oldest boys when they were toddlers were extremely picky eaters, hence calling my blog Picky Palate when I started it in 2007.  My boys were young and I was struggling finding more vegetables and fruit they would willingly eat.  Though some trial and error I found some things that helped along my journey.

This Cheesy Layered Beef Enchilada Bake is a weeknight dinner champ. Simple to prepare with flavors the whole family enjoys. Be sure to add it to your dinner menu this week!

It’s always a blast partnering with Old El Paso to bring you new simple dinner ideas.  Hands down some of my very favorite type of recipes to develop.  I know how busy the weeknights get with the kids, so I love having simple dinners on regular rotation.

Instead of rolling individual enchiladas, I cut up tortillas and did a “layered enchilada” dish that’s done in about 30 minutes from start to finish.  All simple pantry ingredients too.  This is a great dinner recipe to get the kids to help with.  They’ll love feeling apart of dinnertime.
