    If you don’t already use Pinterest I’d suggest you start there. Literally thousands and thousands of recipes to cover any style of eating, any cuisine, any budget etc.

    Without some idea of what foods your family likes and dislikes and what your individual interpretation of ‘healthy’ is, that’s the best I can do!

    Pinterest is a good source, or try Google. Search for recipes with ingredients your family will enjoy. The choices are limitless.

    You might want to join the Recipe Swap! Group, there are loads of recipes, as well as links to great cooking sites like https://skinnytaste.com/.
    Here is the link to the group, I'm not sure if pasting it here will work: https://community.myfitnesspal.com/en/group/148-recipe-swap

    You have it backwards. Take recipes your family will eat and make them healthy.

    I'm a single mom to 3 young kids and our weekly menu is usually:

    Spaghetti w/salad and garlic bread <--sometimes adding meatballs, sometimes it's meatless, sometimes one kid just wants butted noodles and I'm ok with that
    Crockpot roast with carrots and warm bread and a salad <--all my kids love this. Great leftovers or can turn into a stew with added canned veggies.
    Make your own pizzas
    Easy night of either hotdogs or pizza rolls (I eat leftovers)
    Leftover night
    Stovetop, juicy chicken with a veggie and either bread or rice <--I make extra and usually a couple kids eat it as leftovers with me
    Takeout night

    I like the websites Skinnytaste and Slender kitchen for recipes. I have found the more I used them the better I became at adapting my own recipes.

    Rocco DiSpirito has written several books takes well known comfort foods and makes them healthier/lower calorie. He takes out the 'bad' stuff and tweaks them with other healthier items.

    Perhaps make changes to meals a family endeavor? Go shopping with them and have them select a new, never tried vegetable or fruit, etc.,
    Have family involved in the preparation in the meals?
