Munchkin Meals: Baby & Toddler

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 and now our sweet baby girl.  


Munchkin Meals: 23 Months & 6 Months + 27 Months

The Toddler: 
28 Months Old
36 pounds
41 Inches Tall
Clothes Size: 3 & 4T shirts- 3T shorts- Size 10 Shoes

Food allergies: 

Sitting proud in his Nuby Booster Seat.  Loves being up at “our” level.  

This is one of our weekly staples that I wanted to showcase.  Homemade burrito bowls! 

I make a large batch of rice with cilantro, add in ground turkey with spices(or ground chicken), corn and depending on the day a mix of black and pinto beans.  We always offer at least one green vegetable with every lunch and dinner.  

What we typically go through in a week for his meals?

1-2 lbs of Chicken(ground or grilled)
1-2 lbs Turkey(sliced)
4 Cans of Beans
6-7 Bananas
2 Cucumbers
3 Green Peppers
1 Zucchini 
A batch of fresh-in season fruit
1/2 Box of Rice Chex
2 Gallons of Milk
Box of Rice Mac & Cheese
Box of Scooby Snacks- Gluten/Egg/Nut Free snacks from Whole Foods-lovingly called Scooby Snacks
1 Bag of Popcorn
Large Bag of Homemade Mix: Dried Apricots, Blueberries, Raisins, Coconut, Rice Chex

Depending on what is on sale we will get some treats like frozen yogurt, pudding, or ice cream- of course all allergy-free.  Love making sure he gets a sweet treat every now and then!

Allergy-Free Cookies- a sweet treat indeed! He LOVED helping me make them-especially testing if they were ready or not!

7 Months Old
16 lbs
28 Inches
Clothes: 9 Month Onesies- 12 Month Pants- 12 Month Footed Sleepers

Food allergies:
Gluten Intolerance 

Blurry MESS

Pureed Goodness: Pears, Bananas+Apples+Pears, Banana+Plum+Grape, Sweet Potato, Carrots. 

All of the pureed Baby Food is with a mixture of brown rice.  I make a weeks worth of food every Sunday afternoon.  Our little girl will go through all of this, plus some finger foods and her favorite snacks: Mum Mums in one week.  She is still exclusively breast-fed and we are working religiously on trying to have her take a bottle.  At this point I am actually gaining more ground with a sippy cup full of cold water.  The temps get in the 120s here in the summer and I would love to be able to supplement some water in during the day so that she doesn’t get dehydrated.
