toddler meal ideas

I'm looking for some ideas of healthy gluten free meal ideas for my 1 year old. I feel like I go shopping and buy things, but can never make a meal out of them. Any suggestions?

She can't have bread, or too much sugar.

She should be eating what you eat. Proteins (chicken, fish..etc), veggies (preferably raw) and fruits. 

My DD is gluten free and has always eaten what we've eaten.

That sounds like a good idea but i forgot to add she can't eat cheese. So what can i use as an alternative?

Sauce, vegetables, chicken, breaded eggplant, sautéed mushrooms, or you could make cold ones with fruit and yogurt (although that might be a bit too high in sugar)
I make eggs wraps with mushrooms and spinach leaves. I use flour tortillas, but you would use corn.
There's this fake cheese (vegan) called daiya or something, but I avoid fake stuff.

She eats with us too, but I wanted to make it a little healthier.

Then you should try to make your meals healthier. What exactly are you wanting to change?

No problem.
You can also make sandwiches with other things instead of bread, like mushrooms or eggplant slices. Mashed cauliflower and/or sweet potato is a good alternative for pasta. Rice is gluten free.

So switch your entire family to gluten free and your toddler can eat what you make.

My brother and SIL have two children with celiacs and they are all gluten free.

1.Tilapia fillets with green bean rice.  

Buy the frozen ones since they are easy to store and to cook. Just defrost it (microwave 30 sec) and season with salt and pepper. 'fry' it with a 1 tbsp of butter or olive oil. once it's done thhrow in some cooked greenbeans, carrots or corn (I buy frozen green beans and corn) with 2 tbsp of water and once it's cooked add some rice. serve with fish.

2. Spread salsa or pasta sauce on a corn tortilla and top with pepperoni and sauteed mushroom. place it on a skillet and cook until the tortilla becomes crispy. serve.

3.Raw carrot shreads and bacon.
