Healthy Meal Ideas for Toddlers

Toddlers-and-Picky-Eating-Habits-300x199.jpg

My little girl just turned 3, and it just keeps getting harder to get her to eat healthy foods. The key, I think, is to just keep trying healthy choices. Here are a few ideas:

Breakfast
Meal 1: Whole grain waffles with peanut butter (instead of syrup) with a side of bananas.
Meal 2: Sausage links and scrambled eggs with a side of oranges and blueberries.
Either of these will keep your little one full and focused!

Lunch
Meal 1: Homemade veggie soup with whole grain crackers.
Meal 2: Baked chicken, cheese cubes, carrots with ranch, and pretzels.
Meal 3: Bbq shredded chicken on wheat sandwich thins, tomatoes and cucumbers on the side.
All of these options would give picky eaters plenty of good choices.

Dinner
Meal 1: Baked chicken, baked sweet potato, corn on the cob.
Meal 2: Homemade chicken noodle soup with whole wheat ritz crackers.
Meal 3: Salad.. Lettuce, tomatoes, carrots, boiled eggs, shredded cheese, and very little dressing.
Lots of variety to keep your toddler trying new foods!

I hope this gave you some ideas to help keep your toddler full and focused! What are some of your favorite meals?
