Hi there, looking for some meal and snack inspiration and maybe a few laughs along the way? You’ve come to the right place! On My Kids Plate is all about quick meals, fresh ideas and creative inspiration that help you and your family live better.
Stop Mealtime Battles
Are you having battles at the dinner table? I have, and I didn’t want to either! But together we can keep from getting frustrated and try some new ideas. Let’s get creative in the kitchen with ideas that are quick or fun, and sometimes even are both!
You’ll also find reviews for products that will help make your life easier, so you can spend more time making memories in the kitchen or around the table.
Feed Your Family Well And Have Fun
When it comes to nutrition and kids, let’s walk the middle line. As a parent, most of us want to encourage our kids to eat more veggies and fruits? That feels like the biggest battle some days. Yet sometimes we also want to let go and have a little fun!
You’ll find that same idea echoed throughout On My Kids Plate where many ideas do feature veggies and fruits, but we also show real family meals and treats too.
So take a look around and you’re sure to find ideas that inspire you to bring a little fun and tasty bites to your table! You can find some of my latest posts, as well as product recommendations here.

About Kristy Richardson:
Hi there, I’m Kristy. I am married to my super awesome hubby and have a daughter who has just turned eight.
We live currently in Prescott Valley, AZ but have moved around a bit. We’ve lived in Toledo, OH, in Montreal, Canada and Atlanta, Georgia as a family. Phew, if a family can survive moving from blistering heat to freezing cold, you know we are going to stick together. I grew up in Ohio and will always be a Buckeye, but now I’m hanging in the mountains with cactuses.
I started On My Kid’s Plate on Instagram where I shared many of my daughter’s meals. She went through a huge picky eating phase and I was determined to make sure I was providing both balanced family meals and variety.
I share a lot of humor about the ups and downs of being a parent because let’s face it that’s real life. Couldn’t we all use a laugh when we can’t think straight and the kids are losing their minds? Yeah, here too.
I practice many of the ideas with my daughter of positive parenting. I feel strongly about encouraging reading, play and education.
Before On My Kid’s Plate, I worked with kids as an educator and director in both Science and Natural History museums, and as a family we love to mix learning and play.
