Munchkin Meals: Toddler & Baby {9 Months}



Munchkin Meals: Toddler & Baby



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.

Typically we will have 2-3 large slow cooker meals each week.  

Easy and both of the little ones devour each and every meal.



We are constantly searching for food combinations that are allergy-free and toddler approved- luckily our family members that live far away search the local shelves of their specialty stores for goodies that he can safely have.  

Thank you Aunt Darcy and Uncle Bill for the fabulous box of snacks!

Em typically eats whatever dinner we are having as a family.  She prefers to eat on her own at this point which is adorable and typically messy.  She can out eat me most days of the week- I wish I was kidding.  Right now Em is still 100% breastfed.  The bottle is one of her least favorite items in the world, truly, sincerely, she hates those things.  Yet, we press on.  She will now drink water out of a sippy cup, bottle, or her favorite-The Toddler’s new camelback water bottle.  She is as feisty as ever and is starting to refuse to eat from a spoon… which is the complete opposite of The Toddler who would gladly love for me to spoon feed him each and every meal(forever & ever).  Hilarious how different and yet similar these two are!
Thank you Brittany for continuing this tradition! I LOVE the Munchkin Meals Link-up!
