Tyson Chicken Nuggets ~

Having trouble getting your kids to eat? Here’s a novel approach – how about letting them play with their food? Dinnertime with Tyson is so much fun – especially when your dinner looks like cute holiday decorations!

Tyson Chicken Nuggets at Sam’s Club

We went to Sam’s Club to purchase Tyson Chicken Nuggets for dinner. Not only are they tasty, but they are also fully cooked and made from 100% natural ingredients, making them a convenient dinner option that you can feel good about. You know what else you can feel good about? Letting your kids play with their food. It’s the holiday season and what better way to have fun with your family than to decorate your food!

I am not sure what you like to use on your chicken nuggets, but in my home we use a wide variety of dips, depending on our moods. We love the traditional fare like ketchup, mustard and ranch dressing, but we also like Habanero Sauce and hot sauce on occasion. One fun way to get your kiddies to eat their food is to let them play with it.

Kids love Rudolph and this little reindeer is super easy to make. Rudolph’s nose is ketchup, his eye is a peppercorn and his antlers and legs are shredded carrots. Super easy and fun, even for small children. Helpful hint: the peppercorns like to roll off the chicken nugget. So, we dipped them in ketchup to make them stick. 😉

Admittedly, Santa was a bit more difficult to make. His outfit and hat are ketchup. His ball on the end of his hat is Ranch Dressing, his mouth is a shredded carrot piece and his eyes and buttons are peppercorns. We initially tried to make his beard out of Ranch Dressing, but it ran and made a mess with the ketchup. So we used a piece of tortilla shell instead. 🙂

Frosty was the easiest of all. For Frosty, all you need are peppercorns, a shredded carrot piece and a bread tie. And Voila! You have Frosty the Snowman!  What cute little creations would you make with Tyson Chicken Nuggets?

  11. What a novel idea–letting kids play with their food!!

  12. I love that you dressed up your food – Such a cute idea! I work at Sam’s Club, and sell a ton of the Tyson chicken – I know how popular it is 🙂

  13. I am so glad to see I am not the only one that dresses my sons food up as characters to get him to eat it, they are so cute.

  14. I LOVE this!!! I bet your kids had a blast! I’m going to have to think of some creative ways to get my kids to play with their food! Those chicken nuggets look like the perfect starting place!

  15. Cute ideas. I will pass this along to my bro that has a youngster that would like to see these on her plate.

  16. Cute ideas! I never thought to “dress up” chicken nuggets… my kids’ favorite meal! I make them hot dog octopuses a lot and they LOVE those too! 🙂 Oh, and their favorite dipping sauce for nuggets is Duck Sauce, from the Chinese Restaurant! Pretty weird, if you ask me! LOL

    • Hot dog octopuses sound fun! I have never tried that. I love Duck Sauce, on eggrolls….never thought about trying it on chicken tenders. I have to admit that it sounds interesting, though. 🙂


  17. Adorable idea. I have the hardest time to get my son to eat anything that isn’t chips or candy. UGH! This might actually work!

  18. Amanda Miller says

  19. Anita Leibert says

    These ideas are so cute and you certainly have quite an imagination! I’ll bet that the kids just loved eating their Christmas themed food 🙂 Maybe if I try something like this, I can get hubby to eat his broccoli? lol

  20. Such a cute way to present the nuggets to the kids! When our kids were little, they would have starved if it were not for chicken nuggets. LOL!

  30. krista grandstaff says

    I have never had a problem with kids playing with their food…but we have rules…lol..only at home 🙂 I think as long as they eat it, why not? And I have never had a problem with my kids eating vegetables, try new things…you name it… we make food fun, and have always let them get involved. ( of course, now I have a 21 yr old college kid who eats a LOT more adventurously than I do.. tongue sandwiches? No thank you!)

  31. These are so cute! I love your reindeer!

  32. Oh my goodness how cute! I would have never thought of decorating chicken nuggets! What a fun way for kids to eat!

  33. What cute ideas! My kids love to dip just about anything but I haven’t tried making their nuggets look like animals!

  34. I like that they’re all natural. Very creative holiday nuggets. Cute!

  35. GREAT post Dawn!!! You did an awesome job with the nuggets!!! Love it!
