Welcome into a day-in-the-life breakdown of my toddler’s meals. D is 13 months old and a whopping big boy. Although now that we do so many activities during the day and he is literally running around I have sensed that and have had to come to grips that my little man no longer has the baby chub. No more rolls, sweet cheeks-you get the picture…
I Would like to thank Brittany over at A Healthy Slice of Life for hosting another fabulous link-up! The last time I linked-up with Munchkin Meals I was given so many ideas on how to introduce different types of food to my son. LOVED IT.
Throughout the day D gets three large meals, two-three snacks and 2-3 large bottles of cow’s milk. I offer him water throughout the day and always have a cup with us that he can grab on his own where ever we go.
The top of our fridge is dedicated to daily meal options.
Breakfast: Bananas, Oranges, Cherrios, Gerber Puffs, Grapes, Whole Wheat Bread, Non-fat Greek Yogurt, Pears, Peaches
Lunch & Dinner: Chicken, Roasted Beef, Peas, Carrots, Corn, Blueberries, Whole Wheat Pasta with Tomato, Basil and Garlic Sauce, Edamame, Sweet Potato, Green Beans, Pears, Peaches, Kiwi, Organic Baby Pouches
Breakfast: Water, Pear, 1 whole banana, Peaches and Cherrios
D really wakes up hungry but for some reason he isn’t able to eat a large meal quite yet. So he snacks on breakfast before he tells me “All Done” in sign language and off we go!
Snack 1: 8 Ounces of Cow’s Milk, Whole Wheat Bread, Edamame, and some more of his favorite- a Banana.
My attempt at a plate is futile. He quickly picks up the plate and brushes off everything onto his tray. Well, I tried. He had Chicken, Kiwi, Corn, Sweet potatoes and some of an Orange. Lunch is generally the largest meal for him. Right after his one nap and perfect to re-fuel before we head out to the park.
Not pictured- the massacre of blueberries. It was a massacre I tell you! He also had a large cup of water with an ounce of apple juice in it. Honestly, I don’t think he can tell the difference.
Whole Wheat Pasta with Tomato, Basil & Garlic- what a mess! But he loves slurping that down- hilarious and healthy. Green Beans, Sweet Potato, Corn, Oranges, Peas and Carrots. Note: I try to give him a range of options because he is incredibly picky for no apparent reason- if the food is not in piles-as in seperated- he will not eat it. EGADS he got his picky-eating from me. Well, at least I can’t blame anyone. : )
I love this link-up and can’t wait to browse through and figure out some more ideas for D. He has a scary food allergy to Arrowroot so I tread carefully when it comes to new additions to his meals. Are there any ideas on how to make fish that involves very little seasoning and/or oils?
Thanks for reading!

I have my new site finally up and running! Took over 12 hours working out the logistics but it is up!
As Cute as a Bug’s Ear
I will be continuing to work on the details of the site over the next couple of weeks but I am excited at the new possibilities this could bring for my family.
