With our busy lives and distractions around every corner, there’s a lot contributing to the problem, but I believe it can be solved. And one thing that should be the least of your worries is coming up with healthy family dinner ideas each night.Looking for healthy family dinner ideas? Find a collection of my favorite healthy recipes in this post.

Healthy Family Dinner Ideas

Quick: Ready in 30 – 45 minutes for busy weeknights. Think one pot meals, quick stir fry and curry recipes, and everyone favorite hand held foods like tacos and quesadillas all packed with healthy ingredients and a ton of flavor.
Easy: All these healthy recipes use simple ingredients you can find at any grocery store. Also I cut back on unnecessary steps and clean up with each single recipe. Ain’t nobody got time for that!
Kid approved: Think – now you are armed with 65 healthy dinner ideas your family will enjoy! These are tasty healthy meals I tested on my own children and then picked their favorites out of 250 dinner recipes we have here on iFOODreal. Dinner table will be quiet 100%!

For example, grilled chicken breast made with organic meat, served with quinoa and cucumber tomato salad made with farmer’s market produce is one of the healthiest meals in my books.
What do normal families eat for dinner?We all know everyone has their own understanding of “normal”. I can tell you what our family eats for dinner inspired by healthy lifestyle, West Coast location in Canada, and Ukrainian and Russian heritage.

We strive to cover all food groups to keep everyone full. We do not worry about making fancy meals, if it fits certain cuisine or looks pretty. We also buy simple ingredients and do not like food waste. Often for dinner, it is one of our dinner recipes. Many nights, I love making a huge pot of soup or stew because it makes 2 dinners or leftovers for lunch – we grew up eating soup every day! Then another night it can be leftovers of all sorts plus fridge items that have to be eaten. And quite often it’s “everything but kitchen sink” salads with store-bought healthier dressing. And occasionally cereal, frozen pizza, potstickers and Annie’s mac and cheese when we are just “done”.

Healthy eating is all about balance! We do not follow diets.
Can these dinners be made in advance or frozen?Yes, many can be. If particular recipe can be, you will see recommendations Make Ahead and Freeze in recipe card’s instructions. Also lots of good info in the post itself.
How can I cook any of these healthy dinners for two or one person?Cut recipe in half and cook as per instructions. I think this is the easiest math calculation for ingredient amounts, and not too many leftovers.
Will these meals help me to lose weight? Disclosure – I am not a doctor, so I just share what works for us. We eat what you find on ifoodreal recipes page plus occasional treat, a glass of wine and a night out. It is all about balance. We eat 80% healthy and do not have issues with weight. We also keep active with walks, working around the property, bike rides, runs (my husband) etc. 5 days a week on average. But even grocery shopping or house cleaning is an activity.

I think weight management and weight loss is all about living a “normal” lifestyle without extremes – not eating junk food all the time but not being on restrictive diet like keto, low carb etc. You can read more about my food philosophy and me here.
