With picky eaters in the family, I’m always looking for kid-friendly meals and snacks at Aldi.
Items like dinosaur-shaped chicken nuggets and alphabet letter cookies make meals fun.
I love to pick up some Brie to serve guests and cold coffee for my husband.

I like to grab a loaf of bread to pair with a cup of coffee or for a sweet mid-morning snack for lunch.
The bread costs $3.95 and also comes in a vanilla brioche flavor, which I think sounds equally delicious.
Mini croissants make sandwiches more fun or are perfect as an accompaniment to a pasta dinner.
My kids are always begging for a sandwich with their pasta, and these mini croissants are the perfect find because they’re just the right size for their little fingers.

If you’re trying to cook for picky kids, you know how difficult it can be to satisfy everyone’s tastes at dinner.

This bottle of Stick Cold-Brew coffee is the perfect solution for tired parents.
My husband loves having this coffee in the fridge for a real pick-me-up as with kids our schedules are busy.
