Vida has been an amazing eater from the very beginning. She will eat anything we give her even spicy food, she loves it!
I do find myself going through Pinterest a lot to find new and exciting recipes because sometimes I find myself so lost on what to make and sometimes I feel like in making the same thing over and over again.
I scroll through Pinterest and make my own meal plan for the week.
So here are 5 different breakfast and lunche ideas that I have put together. Feel free to change it up a bit and please just use as a guideline, every child is different.
3 hardboiled eggs
Organic Chicken Sausage
Raspberries with yogurt inside
Mini ground beef burgers just the patty
Steamed Zucchini slices
Sweet potato fries
Butternut squash pancakes with honey
1 hard boiled egg
Tumeric Chicken with mustard sauce
Steak chunks cooked with onions,tomatoes and garlic
Coconut, banana and butternut squash mini donuts drizzled with honey
Coconut chicken strips/nuggets
Spinach cooked with lemon
Pineapple and mango dipping sauce.
Ezekiel toast with organic peanut butter

Rainbow of fruit
This is good to make for dinner and use the leftovers for lunch. To make this I used: 2tbs of turmeric powder per half cup of mustard. Mix and spread all over chicken sprinkle onions and lemons slices in too. Bake until fully cooked.
Coconut chicken nuggets/rice/pineapple and mango dipping sauce.
I'm not big on snacks because if I feed her snacks between meals she won't eat and ends up throwing her food or feeding it to the dogs when I'm not looking. So sneaky. When I do give her a snack, I try to keep them light or give it to her when I know we will have a large break between meals. Here are a few healthy snacks I love to make.
I love love this organic dark chocolate and tofu pudding. So creamy and full of protein. Found on Pinterest.
Vida also loves to dip cucumbers in hummus.
This is just examples of what Vida eats throughout the week. Dinner usually consists of what we are eating and she always gets some kind of fruit for dessert. She still breastfeeds so she's not on any kind of milk at the moment so I do try to feed her filling and well rounded meals, once I a while we go and eat lunch at Chik Fil-a with our friends as a special treat. I hope this helps you to create a fun meal plan for the week, you can also use it at the grocery store so you know what to buy. Moms sometimes tell me that their toddlers won't eat half of the veggies Vida eats so I tell them that toddlers are not born picky eaters, so we must experiment with different textures, colors, and flavors everyday. Give it a try your toddler may surprise you in the end.
Please share your fun toddler meal in the comments below I would love to try them out.
