Here are 28 Easy Toddler Meal Ideas from a Registered Dietitian mom. They’re quick, healthy and great for lunch or dinner.
Judging by how many of you downloaded the 50+ Toddler Meal Ideas PDF, I think it’s safe to say there are a lot of parents out there looking for quick, healthy meal ideas for their kids. So, I’ve decided to start a monthly series where I share some of the meals I’ve been feeding Squish.
A few things to keep in mind:
- First of all, the plates are from Re-Play Recycled. (affiliate link). They’re my favorite and everyone always asks about them!
- These are mostly lunch and dinner. We’re kinda creatures of habit when it comes to breakfast and he eats yogurt, fruit and either oatmeal or toast with peanut butter pretty much every day.
- Squish is currently 22 months old and BIG for his age. He eats A LOT so if this looks like a lot of food to you, keep in mind it may be more than your child is eating and that’s ok.
- I mentioned in this post about Healthy Fats For Kids that I do my best to include a healthy fat source at most meals…but sometimes I don’t, and that’s ok. I also sometimes forget to include a vegetable. We’re working on it!
- Like most people, we have our favorite brands. I’ll try to mention some of them in the first picture they show up in. Similarly, if the recipes are on my blog, I’ll link to them!
