Mamas, I need some help! I am desperate for some new toddler dinner ideas to throw into our regular chicken nugget, mac & cheese and spaghetti rotation for Caroline. On the days that I can get it together enough to have dinner ready for the whole family by the time Matt and Caroline get home we eat the same meal together as a family. However, once I return to work that will be a tad unrealistic because I’ll have exactly 4 minutes from the time I walk in the door until the time that Caroline will completely melt down for dinner so quick is key!
Don’t judge! Here’s what you can usually find on Caroline’s plate (or the floor):
- Frozen vegetables (usually broccoli)
- Fruits (usually blueberries, grapes, watermelon or a banana)
- Cheese sticks
- Chicken Nuggets
- Macaroni & Cheese
- Turkey slices
- Scrambled eggs
- English muffin or toast with peanut butter
- Grilled cheese
- Sweet potatoes
- Beans (usually black or chick peas)
Even Charlie is sick of these foods. So I need some new ideas – preferably healthy, preferably easy and quick to make, preferably something I can prep on Sunday and feed for the entire week!
*Side note: the egg crate set has been one of Caroline’s most played with toys since her birthday. Worth every penny (and hour spent looking for the pieces around the house)!
What do you feed your toddler?!
