Apr 19 2016 - 12:20pm

Passover may be all about doing without, but convincing little ones to forgo their favorite standby meals won't fly in most households. After Friday's first seder, removing leavened bread from a tot's diet doesn't have to be a recipe for disaster. We've rounded up some kid-friendly recipes that remove the holiday's forbidden ingredients but will still bring kids to the table at mealtime.

Matzo Pizza

Going without pizza for a full week can be torture for some tots (and their parents). While you can simply add sauce and cheese to a sheet of matzo, this recipe [1] makes it a bit more appealing to those with more sophisticated pizza palates.

You don't have to sacrifice your weekly taco night for Passover. This brisket matzo tacos recipe [19] uses Chipotle-braised brisket, horseradish crema, tomatillo salsa, guacamole, and red onion to re-create the taste of a beef taco, and substitutes matzo for masa in the tortillas.

Passover Noodle Kugel

A staple at most Jewish holiday meals, the noodle kugel isn't usually associated with Passover due to the pasta used in the recipe. This Passover noodle kugel [21] uses Kosher for passover noodles, cottage cheese, and ground-up coconut macaroons to re-create the taste.
