So how do you please a picky eater on a camping trip? You buy him dinosaur chicken nuggets of course! Oh, and all his favorite snacks. I know what you’re thinking, you need an oven or a microwave for chicken nuggets, but I’m here to say that I experimented for all of us and all you need is a stove!
Another picky kid dinner that would be great for camping is grilled cheese, you can even fry up slices of ham for these. If your kid is a Spaghettios kid, camping is a great time to “splurge” on those. Mine doesn't like them, but cheese quesadillas are also great for some picky kids! Some of the kid friendly and picky preschooler approved snacks that we brought were trail mix (Chex cereal, cashews, m&ms), Kids Cliff Bars, Chewy Granola Bars, plain Cashews, Cheez Its, bananas, applesauce. He also ate peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for lunch which is great for filling him up, but dinner is always our biggest struggle. Frozen chicken nuggets will always be added to our camping grocery list!
