My son has gotten really picky about hwat he'll eat. He's 15 months old. I'm lookin for good toddler friendly meals....anyone have any healthy ideas? He doesn't eat hot dogs, mac and cheese or thing like that. Healthy natural/organic ideas would be best. 

Thanks ladies :)

 You could make PB&J (or any kind of sandwhich) and get those different shape cutters. Like the dolphins w/ a heart in the middle or dinosaurs. :D *shrug* My son loves food, he eats anything, LOL!

That's a cute idea. Right now he will only eat artichokes (WTH?) and tofu chicken. What kind of child eats artichokes??? And they're expensive here!!!!

My two year old loves spaghetti!! If you dont like regular pasta, I think they make wheat pasta!! Anyways, its brown looking!! But I also make white meat chicken for him I always bake it and he loves it especially when I bake it in Italian dressing!!! Will your child eat veggies? My kids love to eat broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, celery, etc...all dipped in ranch dressing!!! A lot of times they will eat baked chicken in their salads!!! Or baked pork chops cut up into some long grain and wild rice!!! But those are just a few ideas!! Your baby may not like it but its not unhealthy. Good Luck sweetie!!!

fruit pieces dipped in strawberry/vanilla yogurt. or sometimes veggies dipped in yogurt works well too. Wheat thin crackers with jelly/jam spread onto them. Whole grain bread slightly toasted in a toaster oven with a slice of cheese over it. Then decrust and cut into little squares. Scramble egg (cooked into chunks) is really good for brain development and my dd will eat that with steamed broccoli that she can just pick up and eat.  Steamed Pea's are fun to pick up and eat along with berries. if you are alright with peanut butter, sometimes i will make a peanut butter and banana sandwhich with crasains in them. lol well good luck. i need ideas too.I try to make it fun and healthy. and she does not eat what i eat. i try to make it simple and healthy so i can kee track of her nutrition
