Toddler Meals

Toddler Meals

Its so hard to always have to think of what to give your toddler for every meal and with variety!. So I decided to write it all down, and if its always on the internet I can refer to it easily if I need. Theres sooo many toddler meal ideas sites out there so I just wanted to amalgamate as much as I could into one concise list and if it helps my readers along the way then thats brilliant. Tried and tested suggestions for this list always welcome :-) I also found that if my LO one was being looked after by family/friends this would come in handy too! These are all vegetarian but can easily be substituted with meat.

For the dinners list  I plan to do detailed recipes on how to make them, this to come later…

Breakfast

Cheerios
Rice crispies
Multigrain shapes
Marmite/peanut butter on toast
Fruit bread ( Kingsmill do really nice Fruit and Fibre loaf)
Yoghurt (Plum yogurts and fromage frais & Rachels yogurts ive found to have least sugar content)
Apple/pear or banana

Lunch

Corn on the cob
Salad – cucumber/cherry tomatoes/celery/carrot sticks/pepper slices
Mini pittas ( you can get this most places, just a smaller version but my LO loves em)
Tortilla wraps – filled with anything they like (advocados/cucumber/tomatoes etc.) a little bit of salad cream helps
Soup
Beans (snack pot beans really handy just take lid off and put in microwave)
Boiled egg and soldiers ( I do mine for 7 mins)

Dinner

Fish fingers with gherkins (cocktail gherkins are now her favourite but the big ones cut up are winners too!)
Veggie quorn sausages with mashed potato and peas
Veggie tagine & cous cous (asda do tagine sauces which I add vegetables to)
Jacket potato with beans and grated cheese

Pasta with campbells condensed soup
Pasta with tomato puree
Spinach tagliatelli with creamy Philadelphia sauce, peas and quorn bacon
