Oats, Natural Yoghurt, Blueberries, Strawberries, Raspberries + Honey
I love making overnight oats for myself and normally make far too much so Lily ends up with some too. I put all sorts in these but mainly frozen fruit which defrosts overnight in the fridge and last a heck of a lot longer too. I also make it in empty chocolate spread jars, well, not empty but you know when you get to the bottom of the Nutella and you can’t scrape anymore out…that. If you’ve not tried overnight oats in an empty Nutella jar then you haven’t lived.
Ham + Cheese Frittatas
With Walkers Sunbites & 3/4 Banana
I picked up this book after seeing someone on Instagram talking about it, Mothers Of Daughters I think although it’s a while ago now and my memory upped and left along with my dignity as soon as I gave birth. Frittatas are amazing for getting extra goodness into toddlers, the filling options are endless. We went for ham and cheese but you can put anything in them really from tuna to mushrooms to chicken or Quorn. Anything goes!
Tesco Meat Free Pieces in Spanish Chicken Sauce with Orzo, Broccoli + Green Beans (Vegan)
I must say, I really rate the Tesco brand meat-free pieces over the Quorn ones, they have a slight seasoning to them which is really nice and you can cook them much easier. With frozen Quorn, you need to cook it with a sauce but these you can stir fry from frozen in 5 minutes meaning they’re a lot more versatile as well as cheaper.
Everyone loved this and even Eloise cleared her plate with no fussing at all which is basically unheard of. I used orzo instead of rice purely because we didn’t have enough rice to go around but it worked really well! I think just your bog standard penne would with this too if you fancy a pasta dish rather than rice.
What My Toddler Ate Tuesday has been a thing on here for about a year now, I briefly went over to Instagram with my toddler food posts but I’m launching it back up here and I’m excited! I asked a little while ago whether anyone would be interested in joining in with these posts and quite a lot of you said you would so here it is! Don’t leave me hanging now guys, haha! I did originally do these posts every week but I figured that maybe that would be too much for a linky so I’m stretching the link up to a monthly thing.
The idea is you photograph a full day of your toddlers meals, doesn’t have to be just one day you could take your favourite breakfast, lunch, and dinner from whatever days you like because I know how easy it is to forget to take a photo of your kids food every meal for an entire day. Feel free to include your recipes, cookbooks, cutlery, or tips you have found along the way!
