Sometimes, getting kids to eat healthy foods can be tough. Sometimes we can have kids who will eat any food and are angels in the ‘eat anything healthy’ department and other times it seems like an impossible task to try and get anything healthy into their bodies.
We totally understand this at The Healthy Mummy and not only do we try and bear this in mind when doing meal plans for mums, but we also create lots of kid friendly meals too to cater for fuss pots.
And here is a healthy version of chicken nuggets from our Healthy Kids Cookbook which taste yummy and they won’t even know are good for them.
You can buy a hard copy of the book here (it has 68 recipes for kids)

Healthy Chicken Nuggets

As with fish fingers, store-bought chicken nuggets can be full of ingredients that are not identifiable as food, plus a lot of unnecessary sodium.
Some are better than others but, nutritionally, you can’t beat homemade. Choosing breast meat reduces the fat content, but dark meat or thigh meat has a lot of flavour.
The choice is personal, but both are packed with protein.


  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 1 1⁄2 cups breadcrumbs
  • 3⁄4 cup grated parmesan
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • Olive oil spray


  • Preheat oven to 200°C.
  • Cut the chicken into 2cm chunks.
  • Combine breadcrumbs and parmesan.
  • Dip chicken into the beaten egg, then into the breadcrumb mixture.
  • Lay chicken on a lined baking tray and spray with oil.
  • Bake for 10 minutes.
