What do you feed your toddlers?

What do you feed your toddlers for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks? I feel like I'm in a rut and feeding them the same things: hot dogs, macaroni & cheese, grilled cheese, chicken nuggets...they are not big on fruits and veggies although I try to introduce them..they wind up on the floor. I need some new ideas!!

  • eggs, oatmeal, string cheese, Do they like Peanut Butter? You might want to try that with some celery or apples. Or try to serving the veggies like celery and cucumbers with ranch dressing. My kids love dipping the veggies in the dressing. Tuna sandwiches? My kids have always seem to like that... When they were little I would just mix the tuna with some mayo, now that they are older I add things like onion and relish to it. That's all that I can think of right now.... :) Good Luck!

  • I found that as soon as they were old enough to help wash off the fruit or veg or help make a recipe, then they had more interest in eating it. We try to give them fresh fruit like grapes, berries and they love watermelon. They also like apples with PB and raisins. Then home made soups are great, especially cream of potato (with cheese) and broccoli cheese. Good Luck!
