Quick, Easy + Healthy: A Day of Meals for a Toddler

a day of meals for a toddler

It's hard enough planning meals for us adults, let alone our kiddos (am I right??) And since I'm not with Parker during the day throughout the week, I try and do all I can to make sure he has plenty of good food to eat. It is SO easy to reach for a box of mac n' cheese or feed him starches all day. But, considering the fact that I get to control the food he eats (for now...) I've tried to put a lot of thought into things that are quick and easy to put together (and also taste great).

Just like I do for myself, I pre-cut a lot of fruit for the week and always make extra dinner for lunches the next day!

Here is a sample day of food for a toddler: 

Breakfast:
5 oz organic whole milk
Scrambled eggs with a side of avocado and sliced honeydew melon

*We share! Tyson and I make a big batch of scrambled eggs with spinach, mushroom and onions and Parker will eat the same.

Snack:
Lightly salted snap pea crisps or HappyBaby Puffs

Lunch:
Sunshine Burger heated with some organic green beans (all from frozen)

*And of course he is drinking water all day long

Snack:(optional)
Sliced almond cheese (soy free) and some raspberries

*Sometimes he needs this second snack, sometimes he doesn't.

Dinner:
Salmon, sweet potato and veggies
6 oz organic whole milk 

*He normally just eats what we make for dinner



What are your go-to quick and healthy meals? I'd love some more ideas!
