Feeding a toddler is not always an easy task. Today on the blog I share my attempt as a Registered Dietitian mom to offer my little one a well-balanced diet.
I am sharing another edition of “What My Toddler Eats” today! You can check out my first post here.
Here are some meals he has been served over the past few months. He ate most of these meals, but I made a note otherwise.
Perhaps I should call this the “yellow meal”. This was a thrown together meal of leftover blueberry pancakes (from J. Christophers), sweet potato cubes, cheese cubes, and banana slices. Ironically sometimes the meals you spend the least amount of time preparing are the most well-liked by your little one.
Another simple breakfast in the books. This is a Nature’s Path Buckwheat Widlberry Frozen Waffle with 1-2 tbsp almond butter spread on top. Banana slice (again) on the side.
Another waffle! This time a 7 Grains Waffle from Kashi Waffle. The waffle was topped with plain Greek yogurt. A fruit medley of clementines and cubed watermelon were on the side.
These Toddler Veggie Pinwheels are an attempt to increase the little one’s veggie intake. The pinwheels are paired with orange slices.
And then we introduced him to Chick-Fil-A, but we went with the grilled chicken nuggets. Cheese cubes and watermelon cubes helped to round out the meal.
Its been a busy past few months if you can’t tell by all the leftovers. Most Friday nights we head out for pizza at a local pizza shop. This meal was leftovers from our weekly Friday night outing. To help balance out the meal we offered him a carrot/avocado salad and sliced bananas (note the carrot salad was not eaten).
These Spinach Banana Waffles are always a hit and another attempt to sneak in some veggies. Waffles were served with leftover quesidillias and more oranges.
Most weekends we brunch out at a local brunch spot. On this day the little one enjoyed a Belgium waffle, scrambled eggs, and fruit cocktail.
