Toddler Meal Ideas

When Noah first started eating real food I struggled with what foods to give him and how little to cut the pieces.  With Baby Led Weaning (BLW) you basically just give babies whole foods from the get-go (obviously soft) and let them gum it out.  We did not do that, and that's ok.  Everyone says you can just feed you're toddler what you eat, but for the sake of being somewhat toddler friendly AND somewhat clean we tried to cut some things up and not give many things completely whole. Don't get me wrong, sometimes if you want them to eat rice pilaf, or cottage cheese, or other small foods like that.  So your two options are either feed it to them or let them go to town.  And sometimes we do let him go crazy, mostly when we eat on the deck, but for the most part I like to keep my kitchen clean. =)

Here are some ideas for toddler meals that we feed Noah -

From top to bottom:

1. Pizza sandwich - grapes - zucchini bread
2. Chicken Pot Pit -grapes
3. Asian spiced rice noodles with chicken - puffs - strawberries
4. Baked pasta - brocolli cakes - strawberries
5. Brats - roasted potatoes - tomatoes - owl crakers
6. Scrambled eggs and cheese - banana - toast with peanut butter

What to do feed your kiddos?
