I thought it would be quite an interesting little series to post an insight into what my toddler eats in a day. I’m forever looking for food inspiration in general and loved reading Anna Saccone-Joly’s
blog and her “What I ate Wednesday’s
” and it’s just something I really love to have a nosey at so I thought I’d throw my own spin on it with “What My Toddler Ate Tuesday”, that totally works right?
Lily is currently cutting about 4 teeth
, all molars, so she’s very picky at the moment but here is what she ate (technically not on a Tuesday but I won’t tell if you don’t):
For breakfast I gave Lily and Eloise a Mini Raspberry Crumble that I accidentally created which they BOTH actually ate! Cue massive shock there! It takes a few minutes and minus the sugar it’s super healthy and great for making you feel like you have your shit together first thing in the morning which for me, is a rare occurrence.
// 1/2 Cheese and Onion Roll
// Cucumber sticks
// 1 tbsp of Cottage Cheese
// 1/2 Plum
I always get stuck on what to give her for lunch, I find myself trawling Pinterest for ideas but they all seem like too much effort and most of the time I don’t have about 6 hours to make both kids lunches into cute crocodiles or bunnies. Lily loves (making a mess) cottage cheese at the moment so she has it quite a bit with her lunches these days. Veggies are mainly for decoration of course because ever since she’s been cutting her molars she isn’t so fond of anything that is hard to chew unless it’s a crisp.
Spaghetti Bolognese with Onion and Garlic
This went down a treat with Eloise and Lily ate a fair bit but she also smeared it on every piece of white plastic available and we all know what happens to white plastic when it is touched by tomatoes. I did cut the spaghetti up a bit for Lily because she finds it easier to pick up then and it minimises the carnage ever so slightly.
