Toddler Dinners

by Brandy

This is my weekly series of posts to explore the world of feeding munchkins. I will post our previous meals and a rating on how they went as well as discuss numerous issues we all face. I touch on such topics as:

  • How to get your toddler to try new things.
  • How to sneak vegetables in the unsuspecting kid.
  • How to not lose your cool when they sling spaghetti at you.
  • Our dinner time rules.
  • Unique ways to present food to keep it fun for everyone.
  • Quick meal ideas.
  • And much more!

Feel free to ask me any questions about my dinners, leave your new ideas or just vent about last night’s battle royale over grilled cheese. I am not a Betty Crocker and don’t cook anything that take over 30 minutes (unless it’s cake because duh). I try to keep the boy’s meals balanced and healthy. I believe presenting them with lots of healthy choices as well as eating with him as a family will make him a happy eater. Yes, we have box mac and cheese sometimes and frozen chicken nuggets are always in my back pocket for bad days but I try to balance with fruits and veggies in a rainbow of colors. I am happy to share everything I do or don’t do. We are all in this together.

Also be sure to follow me along throughout the week with your creations on Twitter and Instagram with the hashtag #toddlerdinners. I also pin all my posts to the Toddler Dinners board seen below.

It’s very easy to find out any matter on net as compared to books, as I found this article at this web page.

Some notable hosts that you may already be familiar with
are: Go – Daddy vs. Diets can be found with many different features added
together with your plan. Though if you are planning to upgrade from the shared packages then this is the next
best option because it offers you with a fixed amount of resources and these are allocated to your website only.

Pretty great post. I simply stumbled upon your weblog and
wanted to mention that I’ve truly loved surfing around your blog posts.
In any case I will be subscribing to your rss feed and I’m hoping you write again very soon!

I need to say thank you. My 6 year old step son is a very picky eater. We have him every other weekend and struggle a lot to get him to eat anything besides carbs, pain spaghetti, chicken nuggets, french fries and pizza. We’ve tried so many things and then I came across this blog. I decided to try some of the tactics you’ve talked about. We got some separated plates to start. I decided to try doing 1 of each food group, with one thing I knew he already liked. Friday we had homemade popcorn chicken, cooked arrots and he had grapes too. Sat we had a meatball stroganoff type meal so we gave him meatballs (already cut up), green beans, strawberries and the egg noodles all separated/no sauce. He ate the meatballs with ketchup (I have tried for 2 years to get him to eat meatballs with and without ketchup to no avail). We told him he had to try some of every section of his plate and if he did that he could have more of the thing he liked. Night 1 the plate was EMPTY! Night 2 he ate all but 1/3 of the green beans. He didn’t like the green beans, told us, made “I don’t like it” faces and ate it anyway. I am amazed and so happy. In the past he would never try anything he hadn’t already eaten and knew he liked. And would make himself throw up if he didn’t want to eat something. So thank you very much for all of the things that you’ve posted on your blog!

entire community will be thankful to you.

certainly like your web site however you need to check the spelling
on several of your posts. A number off them are rife with spelling problems and I to find it
ver bothersome to tell the reality on the other hand I will certainly come back again.

…and you need to check your spelling AND punctuation. You’re completely missing the point of this blog (which I just happened to stumble upon this morning, and, as a mother to two kids, I love it so far). I find your comment offensive to the blog’s author. Not everyone is a master in grammar (see your post), and it’s the content of this mom’s blog that is certainly worth continuing to stop by.

LOL that is a spam comment :)
