Instagram can be an endless hole of stalking people who were mean to you in high school, liking photos of celebrities who don't know you exist, and crying about home interiors you just can't fit into your tiny urban apartment.
Or it can be a jumping-off point to get inspiration for cooking for your kids. It's so easy to get stuck in the "chicken nuggets and pasta" rut because that's what your kid eats. If, however, you need some aspirational Instagram accounts to inspire you, check these out. They are beautiful, kid-focused, and look delicious enough for you to eat even if your kid opts for chicken nuggets.
Matt's account is all about crave-worthy, kid-approved foods that any adult would be lucky to eat. Get a load of the potato-crusted "chicken fries" for a homemade upgrade on nuggets. So smart!
Catherine McCord's brand focuses on wholesome food that is nutritious, delicious, and above all playful. She has an equal mix of fresh produce and indulgent desserts that the kids can help make. Her pizza roll-ups look nothing short of mouthwatering.
Chances are you won't actually make the exact creations on this glorious eye-candy account, but they might inspire some fun ideas. After all, if you can just once figure out how to make tiny dough bears snuggle mini hot dogs, you can stop trying to keep up with the Joneses. You are supermom.
This account, run by two dads, isn't necessarily focused on "kid food," but why shouldn't kids eat eggs in spicy broth, poached salmon, or sunflower and pumpkin seed crackers? If you're a food-lover and want your kids to follow in your footsteps, these are some pretty delicious ways to get started.
This nutrition-focused foodie mom blends flavor and nutrition for her kid-friendly favorites. Expect lean proteins, quick meals, and lots of avocado on this feed. Lots of avocado + cute kids = Instagram gold.
