Munchkin Meals: Toddler Edition

Munchkin Meals: Toddler Edition

Time for another Munchkin Meals thanks to Brittany over at A Healthy Slice of Life! On the first Thursday of every month she hosts a Munchkin Meals Link-Up Party- which enables me to look through tons of great meal ideas to change things up with my Toddler.


The past two months have been a blur- and I am so glad I took pictures to document The Toddler’s daily eats.  Just a little information for you-

The Toddler: 
34 pounds(lost three pounds in the last two months-baby fat is gone!)
38 Inches Tall
Clothes Size: 3 & 4T shirts- 2 & 3T shorts- Size 9 Shoes

Food allergies: Arrow Root-deathly allergic. Eggs- immediately throws-up.  Peas- topical reaction. Strawberries- topical reaction.  Since he is so darn allergic we have been told to not try any sort of nut product until after he is two years old…. one month away.  BUT we have a blood test to see just what else he is allergic to.

LOVES- All veggies.  BANANAS.  We have gone through AT LEAST four bananas a day.  I am fearful for our grocery budget when he gets older… He will NOT touch cake, cupcakes, bread…. and well, I guess he doesn’t know what he is missing!  He snacks on veggies throughout the day- so some of the meals below look a little lacking because we try to get as much protein into our highly active boy as possible!  The Toddler now eats all of his meals at the table, in a real chair with real silverware.  He sometimes gets a real cup-but for now he isn’t quite tall enough to drink one at the table without dumping some on himself.  

The amount of food shown is actually the amount of food he consumes!


He is active ALL.DAY.LONG. So we try our best to give him healthy, protein-filled options for meals.  I am quite happy with how much I have been cooking with a newborn in the house-and a serious lack of sleep problem.  Lots of cooking- usually on Sunday- prepping for our entire week and making 1-2 large portioned meals we can have for dinner and then easily transfers to lunch throughout the week.  We eat all of our meals at home-so prep-time is SUPER important.

Thank you Brittany for continuing this tradition! I LOVE the Munchkin Meals Link-up!  Can’t wait to pour over all of the other posts!

Do you have any simple crock pot ideas for fall?  
The cooler weather and having two kids under two makes this a necessity.

Do you have any recipes that involve “hidden” veggies?  
I need all the help I can get!

Thank you!
