Now that Roo is wanting to eat “real” food and not pureed foods, I’m struggling with meal ideas. I’m having a hard time coming up with ideas for her meals. I cheat a lot these days because I’m so busy with work and I feel guilty. I rely a lot of Tra.der Joe.s.
At the moment, this is a typical day of meals for Roo:
Breakfast: Ea.rth’s B.est oatmeal made with a bottle of neo.sure and her vitamins, half a banana sliced, a small yogurt (whole milk), and sometimes also a piece of whole wheat toast with butter
Lunch and Dinner (usually interchangeable): Half an avocado sliced or a 1/4-1/2 cup of peas, carrots, corn and cauliflower in butter sauce (from TJs), half a banana sliced, an italian style or a turkey meatball (from TJs) or the lightly breaded fish sticks (without the breading from TJs)
I also give her applesauce, pureed squash or pears, string cheese (cut up into Roo sized pieces) and cheeri.os as other options. It’s so boring and I feel like it isn’t well-rounded. Of course, I give her bites of my food when we are out and about or if I’m able to get myself a meal fixed at the same time as her meal – but that is rare.
HELP! I need some toddler food ideas. I’ve tried to make/save portions of our meals from the night before but they don’t seem to turn out well as leftovers.
What is your typical day of meals look like?
