I am thinking about feed my 17 month old like 5 small meals instead of the regular 3 meals a day. Any ideas on what to give him and how much? He never eats much lunch or dinner, just breakfast. But on the weekends when daddy is home he snacks all day. Whether it's junk or fruit or even things like baby carrots.Answer Question

Lets see, we do yogurt with fruit, apples with peanut butter, celery with peanut butter and raisins on it (however my son is 2 and 1/2 and has all his teeth, so I don't know about your child and celery), fruit salad, mini bagels and cream cheese (they have a great variety of cream cheeses that have fruit in them, or you can just top with fruit), turkey and cheese rolls, my son loves to make his own trail mix; he takes cereal, goldfish crackers, raisins, marshmallows, and sometimes M&M's, and shakes it up, he loves that....granola bars, nutrigrain bars, animal crackers....
let me think for a minute and I can come up with lots more stuff...

Oh yeah, pasta (we choose fun shapes) with butter, tomato sauce or alfredo sauce, cheese and crackers, peanut butter on crackers (we tend to use peanut butter a lot because it has a lot of protein in it and my son isn't a big fan of meat , except for chicken) Cheese quesadillas... pancakes (you can make fun shaped pancakes by using metal cookie cutters, my son loves it when his pancakes are shaped like dinosaurs), veggie dippers with some sort of dressing (whatever your child likes) we use carrots, broccoli, and snow peas...
