  • I never catered to todlers. They ate what we ate. You shouldnt plan a menu around a child... they should learn to try new things. Make a side they like, if they dont like the main dish they can have a bit extra of the side. They will not starve if they choose not to eat what is given them.

    Besides, what adult wants to eat chicken nuggets and the like - gross

  • assign a meat to each night of the week and then build the meal around that.

    I never catered to my kids either - they eat what we eat and thats that.

  • Well, tonight I'm making oven bbq chicken with homemade applesauce and corn bread. Last night we had mini quiches, hashbrowns, and orange slices. The night before that was homemade chicken noodle soup. For this coming week we're going to have meatball sandwiches with spaghetti squash on the side, BLT's, Sweet pork burritos, and i'm sure there will be a night of delivered pizza in there somewhere. :)
