I’ve been in a rut. I haven’t gone creative in awhile. I tried to make PB&J sushi today and it was a bust. So I turned to my friend Pinterest for some “pinspiration” and found SO MUCH MORE. I honestly haven’t been on there in awhile but when I have a goal, I always come away happy. I have also been getting a lot of new readers from Pinterest land so I thought I would give back to that community too!
Here are some things I found:
- Toddler Serving Sizes – This is something I knew a little about. We all think they need more than they really do. Couple of examples: grain serving for 1-3 yr old is 1/4 to 1/2 slice of bread. Raw veggie serving is 1-3 tsp. Meat serving is 1 oz. Apparently my child has not gotten these memos considering he eats more cereal than me but keep this in mind when you are trying to get veggies in them. They don’t need much.
- Toddler Dinner Stash Printable – This is a printable to put somewhere in the kitchen to never have to do the pantry dance for “what do we have” while the kid is FREAKING OUT. I actually do this for dinners in general in our house using an app called Wunderlist. Kevin and I share a list so we always know what we have. Be prepared people.
- Bento meals – We aren’t in the lunch box stage but I am kinda looking forward to it. This is some fun things to do with meals to make it fun. This can be used now too. Bring on the creativity!
To check out more of what I found, here is my kid food board. Do you have some awesome pins?
