  • My 2 yo eats celery and carrot sticks, but he hasn't been eating them long. When my son was younger (and even now) we eat "breakfast" a lot of times for lunch. For breakfast he will actually have cereal usually because I'm getting my older ones out the door for school. For lunch, we'll have scrambled eggs, french toast, pancakes, waffles. But if I don't have time for that, a peanut butter sandwich or cheese melted on a piece of whole wheat bread is his go-to lunch. He loves any type of bean: green beans, lima beans, black eyed peas, crowder peas, etc. Also, ravioli is easy - we get the regular frozen mini ravioli or tortellini and he loves it. It doesn't take but a few minutes to boil. For supper, he eats whatever we're having.

  • I've let my one year old knaw on a carrot stick. It's fine as long as she doesn't bite off a piece bigger then she can eat.

    Things for your child to eat outside of the norm ..

    Grilled (Ham) Cheese
    Cheese Quesadilla
    Speghetti
    Tuna Casarole (I add corn and shredded chicken. That's the only way my son will eat chicken)
    Pancakes
    Waffles
    Sausage
    Ravioli
    Macaroni and cheese (homemade)
    Any cooked veggies
    Fruits
    Rice Stirfry (or just plain rice)
    Cowboy casarole (Meat, Veggies, Potatoes, peeled or unpeeled and cubed, Cream of Chicken or mushroom soup, 350 in the oven for 30 minutes)
    Meatloaf
    Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich
    Chicken Nuggets
    Mashed Potatoes

    Just basically anything that you eat, except for harder meats and other things that are harder for him to chew.

  • do they have all their teeth.. how are they at chewing... also supervise them when theyre eating them... if youre worried about the carrots boil them and give it to them soft

  • Just feed her what you eat... only cut up really small of course. They also make little meals for toddlers.. they should be right next to the baby foods nd such... I buy them for my son and he loves them! and they are quick and easy!
