Making meals for little ones isn’t always easy. Discerning tastes and hungry tummies don’t always allow for experimentation in the kitchen.

Luckily, Sara Snow is a real pro at this. Here she shares three super simple and kid-approved recipes for lunch or dinner using one ingredient they’ll love: Safe Catch Wild Albacore Tuna. With this family favorite, Snow’s versatile meal ideas are easy (thank goodness) to whip up in no time flat (hallelujah!). The little ones can even help!

Take a peek at the video and stock up on what you need at Thrive Market. Recipes below!

Deconstructed Pasta Tuna Salad

Ingredients

1 cup gluten-free pasta
Pinch of salt
EVOO
1 can Safe Catch Wild Albacore Tuna
½ cup Greek olives
½ cup cucumbers, chopped
½ cup cherry tomatoes, halved

Instructions

Cook pasta per instructions on package, drain, and toss with salt and EVOO. Put one portion into a portable snack cup. Open tuna and give it a stir to redistribute the natural oils back into the fish, then place into a separate snack cup. Fill additional snack cups with other veggies your kids loved; Snow used Greek olives, cucumber, and cherry tomatoes.

Stack the snack cups and pop into a lunch box with a cookie! Then the kids can eat them separately or assemble a pasta salad at lunch.
