Toddler Eats

Happy Thursday guys!

Hope you had a great day yesterday!

Today I’m going to be linking up with Brittany for Munchkin eats.  She does a monthly link up for some of us with kiddos showcasing their eats for a day.  I love this link up for many reasons but the main one is that when I’m at a loss for what to feed the Nugget, I just log on here and find tons of ideas 🙂

munchkin meals

The Love Nugget wakes up between 7:00 and 7:30 and we usually do breakfast right away.  Lately we’ve been heading straight to our advent calendar so he can see what surprise he has for the day.

 I’ve been putting stickers for most the days but today I added one of his crackers he’s been loving!

He was so excited to find a yummy treat!

He always has a cup of milk with breakfast along with the rest of his meal.  Today he had yogurt with bananas and hemp seeds along with scrambled eggs with vegan sausage (just what I had on hand), cheese and toast with unsweetened pumpkin butter.

He pretty much finished his whole plate!

After breakfast we got dressed then headed to the gym.  We were there for almost 2 hours so right when we got home he got a snack to hold him over through nap time.  His snack today was a few of these crackers with organic peanut butter and a few raisins.

He was pretty tired once he finished and went straight down for his nap.  He slept for a food two hours then woke up for lunch!

Lunch today was a few random left overs we had in the fridge.  Some organic chicken, carrots and green beans sautéed with liquid aminos, a bowl of organic tomato soup and a grilled cheese.

I showed him how to dip his sandwich in his soup and he was loving it!

After he finished his sandwich and most of his chicken, he wanted more bread so I gave him 1/4 of a piece and some avocado which he gobbled up.

After we were all cleaned up from lunch (anyone else feel like this is a task everyday?  There is always such a huge mess!), we did a little painting, read some books, played with our trucks and blocks then got cozy on the couch to watch just a little bit of Sesame Street while we shared this yummy snack.

Organic apple slices with this dip.

He loves dipping his apples in and sucking off the dip!

Dinner was a combination of a few things.  Leftovers again of the chicken and veggie saute along with some hummus and veggies.  He wasn’t that interested in his dinner last night.  He ate most the chicken and hummus but then said he was all done.  So I wrapped up his plate and saved it for today.

So that’s a day of eats for the Nugget!  He’s still a pretty good eater with some days where he can be picky.  He’s not the biggest veggie lover right now so I’ll make him green smoothies, oat nuggets with veggies, or pancakes with veggies.  Like I said if he doesn’t finish a meal, I’ll wrap it up and save it because more than likely he will eat it the next day.  He loves to snack throughout the day and will ask for crackers all day long!  I have to limit his snacks otherwise he won’t eat any full meals!  I guess it’s just good he’s eating 🙂

QUESTIONS –

  • Is your little one a picky eater? 
  • Do you have to get creative with veggies?

  1. I wish someone would prepare food that looked like that for me! Kiddo dipping his sandwich and apples = the cutest thing. That is so sweet.

    • Giselle Schroer says:

      Haha! Come on over and I’ll cook for you! He got so mad when I took away the yogurt dip so I could have some. Ha!

  2. WOW, such delicious eats! How old is your little guy? I’m trying to teach Hailey the art of dipping, but she isn’t quite there yet 🙂

    • Giselle Schroer says:

      Thanks! He is a little over 18 months but it took him awhile to master the art of dipping. Even now he makes quite a mess but he loves to dip his veggies in hummus and apples in nut butter dip. I think I’m going to need to do more soups and sandwhiches because that was a huge hit too!

  3. We’ve definitely gotten to a pickier age since hitting 2 years… looks like he eats well, and a great variety of foods! I noticed your shirt- do you help with GOTR? I’ve always wanted to volunteer with them!

    • Giselle Schroer says:

      I have volunteered with GOTR a few times but haven’t been able to become a coach yet which is what I really want to do. Their practices are before my husband gets home so I’d have to get a sitter for my Love Nugget. I’m hoping to get to that point in the spring so I can start coaching! Such a great organization! I did get a chance to be a Solemate which is their charity group. You can raise money by running any race you’d like and the money goes directly to sponsoring girls through the program.
