  1. I never got to be so creative with my girls food. I try though!

  2. Nice variety! I love the muffin tin idea; I am totally going to try that out tomorrow. Thanks for sharing such great ideas. My brain gets tired sometimes and your post has inspired me to try a little harder when it comes to meals for the kiddos.

  3. my confession: thought i keep it to myself, i’ve always thought it weird when moms post what they give their toddlers to eat. my reasoning: “why not just give them the same thing i’m eating?”

    but lately…

    i’ve been going crazy getting P to eat anything, and i’m starting to worry that she’ll only ever eat fruit, spaghetti, and pb&j.

    this is really helpful for ideas. quesadillas are definitely next up on the menu! at least until i can make her understand what it means when I say “This is what’s for dinner. Eat it now or cold for breakfast.” 😉

    • Actually, it is funny you should say that. I rarely ever make a separate meal for him, just a variation on what I am eating. If he has yogurt and dried fruit, I am eating that too. If he is having eggs and broccoli, I am eating the same thing. The big difference is in how i plate his food. Since toddlers can occasionally be picky, I take more time with his presentation.

      I believe whole-heartedly in role modeling the eating habits I want him to have, so with rare exception we eat the same thing. We also all eat dinner together, which I believe is important, and if he does”t eat what we have for dinner that is his choice, but I will give it to him for lunch the next day. I offer it over and over until he is hungry enough to try it. If it is a matter of him trying it and GENUINELY not liking it, plain yogurt is his alternate dinner.
