These recipes will get you through the week.

Spring is officially here. It might not look like it in our backyards (No one asked you, Vancouver), but in our hearts, we're twirling through grassy meadows with flower crowns in our hair.

It also means we're as ready to shed those starchy wintery foods as we are our winter jackets. Which is why this week's meal plan celebrates all things spring: colourful produce, fresh flavours, and light-yet-satisfying dishes.

Below are six kid-friendly dinner recipes that parents will also enjoy eating, are fairly healthy, and are quick and easy to make.

Happy cooking!

Sunday: Baked pineapple salmon

It's sweet (that pineapple!), it's fresh (that cilantro!), and it can be on your table in about 30 minutes. Serve it with rice, and you have a no-fuss dinner.
