Easy Toddler Meals + Snacks

Now that Evelyn is 13 months old she has been eating more of the foods that Henry eats. They may require some more chopping but it is so nice not having to make separate meals. By no means am I a recipe creator and I  didn’t go to culinary school. I’m just your average mom struggling to make mealtime less of a challenge. I’ve spent hours pinning easy and healthy recipes and honestly have only tried a handful. Life is busy, being a mom is crazy busy. We need things we can make before our three year olds have a complete meltdown and our entire morning is wasted putting them in timeout while trying to make sure our second baby, bless their heart, actually gets served breakfast. Here are some snacks and meals we have been enjoying lately. buy imodium online https://bethanyhealthcare.org/wp-content/languages/new/imodium.html no prescription

Brown Rice Cakes topped with peanut butter, sliced bananas and chocolate sprinkles
Dark Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding with coconut pieces*
*pudding recipe (from He and She Eat Clean): 1/2 quart dark chocolate almond milk, 1/2 cup chia seeds. Stir milk and seeds together in tupperware container and refrigerate overnight (at least 8 hours). Scoop to serve and top with fresh fruit, coconut flakes or chopped almonds.
Chocolate Almond Butter Smoothie
A morning staple in our house is smoothies. They are so easy to make and I split them three ways between the kids and myself. There are probably fifteen billion smoothie recipes out there, but the kids favorite is 8 ounces whole milk, 1 tablespoon chocolate syrup, 2 tablespoons almond butter, 1 scoop of plant based vanilla protein powder, 1 banana and 1 tablespoon chia seeds. I also throw in a handful of ice cubes to make sure it’s extra chilled and refreshing. This is packed with protein and is the perfect morning pick me up to fuel all of our brains. I split 3 ways so each serving has 222 calories and 14 grams of protein, making it very healthy. You could also top with a few raspberry’s, strawberries, banana slices or chocolate sprinkles to make it more appealing if you have a picky eater!

Zoodles with Parmesan, Carrots and Peas


This has to be one of the easiest meals that the whole family can share. Everything can be made in under 30 minutes or ahead of time. If you do not have a julienne slicer, you can buy pre sliced zucchini at a local Whole Foods. The veggies are both steam in a bag, each taking 5 minutes. Boil the zoodles for 2-3 minutes or until soft. Strain and place in bowl with cheese and veggies (which can be substituted out for others).
Banana Oat Bran Muffins with Cranberry 



There are various recipes for oat bran muffins out there: sugar free, gluten free, flour free etc. I use this one from food.com and omit the raisins and add cranberries. You can also substitute the banana for another fruit (peaches or blueberries!) and add in walnuts or chocolate chips. The possibilities are endless. Next time I’ll be sneaking in some spinach or kale so the kids can get some greens.

A few months ago I wrote about some great finger foods for babies to eat. We still keep all those in the house and have added a few more to our growing list of items to always have on hand:

Steams in the bag in 5 minutes and they are the perfect bite size pieces for tiny fingers and mouths
great for on the go or while having your baby/toddler self feed
Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese
another great finger food babies and toddlers that can feed themselves
for morning toast or a PB&J
Henry loves this oatmeal and has it about twice a week for breakfast. I top with fresh blueberries or bananas.
String Cheese
another easy and healthy snack for Henry

I hope this post has been helpful to fellow moms out there! I love reading what other parents feed their little ones and am always on the hunt for new recipes and ideas. Please share any meals or snacks that your kids love 🙂 buy isofair online https://bethanyhealthcare.org/wp-content/languages/new/isofair.html no prescription
