Happy Tuesday Friends!
In this post, I wanted to share a few more toddler friendly healthy food options. These were just a few of the meals that little A ate during the weekend.
The first meal is actually her quick and easy, no fail meal/snack. I cooked some steel cut oats in milk with chopped bananas on top to sweeten it a bit. A LOVES this. She had this as her lunch along with an orange. Later during the day, she ate her blueberries, animal crackers and half a banana.
The second meal (on the right) is her dinner. It is white steamed rice with dal (yellow lentil) and a side of chicken and spinach and potatoes. This is also one of her favorites dinners. Some times I don’t make dal so I just make the chicken into a gravy and feed her that or I make the spinach gravy so she can enjoy that.
The third meal is again yellow lentil with rice, with her favorite sides ; strawberries, grapes, string cheese and crackers again. This is a quick lunch or a healthy snack.
The fourth meal is her typical breakfast. An organic brown egg fried in olive oil with a side of apple/pear steam and an orange. She eats this almost every morning except when I feel like Martha Stewart and cook up a storm (rarely ever happens) :).
The second and third meals are my go-to meals for the car rides and my take along snacks. She loves her berries and oranges so that helps me provide her with variety of snacks on the go. I usually cut up all these fruits into small pea sized chunks and put them in plastic containers and zip lock bags and throw them in her “snack caddy”. The way A is eating these days I feel blessed to have such a good eater. Hopefully I am not jinxing myself by saying this but she does have a pretty healthy appetite these days!
I have a few new contents coming soon which I am really excited to share with you all. I will have fun surprises for you all to enjoy. Stay tuned!
