Does anyone have any suggestions for meals for an 18 month old and a 3 year old?

I'm starting to get a little bored of the same old meals. Not sure how many things my almost 3 year old will try but i would be nice to get some variety.

  • My 19 month old eats whatever I do and has (more or less) since she started eating solids. Granted in the beginning she'd eat what I was eating after it'd been mashed or through the blender.

  • My 20 month old loves any type of pasta. Cheese ravioli is a favorite, and he loves pasta salad made with rotini pasta (the twirly noodles), italian dressing, cucumbers, tomatoes, and black olives.

  • That sounds really good. I'll have to try the pasta salad. For sure my youngest would eat it. Thank you

  • When my oldest hit 18months, he was really fascinated with pasta. Organic sauces and whole grain noddles will feed them and keep them interested in their food. My four year old son, he's a little different. He likes green veggies, and sandwiches minus the bread. He likes the meat rolled around a half of a piece of cheese and he's good to go. Both of my son's are very found of soups, too much salty ones are not good for them tho. Fun snacks, carrots and ranch, celery and peanut butter, mac n cheese; you really kind of have to explore their taste buds first and then you will become more aware of the things they want to eat.
