Toddler Meals

Oh... Toddlers. One minute they love broccoli, the next they are throwing that plate across the room for having something green on it. Here are some ideas from fellow moms of toddlers that are their go-to meals and will avoid the dreaded dinner meltdowns :)

  • Chicken meatballs with hoisin sauce
  • Spaghetti and meat sauce
  • Grilled cheese (here are some fun ideas)
  • Smoothies
  • Buttered noodles
  • Hamburgers
  • Nachos
  • Tacos
  • Tuna casserole
  • Tuna sandwiches
  • Pasta with olive oil and grated Parmesan cheese
  • Mediterranean Orzo (add chicken for protein!) 
  • Breakfast for dinner--eggs, sausage, biscuits, pancakes, waffles, french toast, bacon etc.
  • Quesadillas! Easy way to hide some veggies.
  • Chicken & Rice
  • Mac-n-cheese -- different add-ins can make it more healthy and fun:
    • frozen peas
    • hamburger
    • hot dogs
    • can of drained tuna
  • This blog post has some amazing ideas as well!
