I get asked all the time for toddler recipes and what I’m making Cecilia when she doesn’t eat what we eat. Since I love writing these recipe roundups for what Travis and I eat (you can find them here and here), I thought I’d do one for all of the toddler food I make! I have and would eat all of things myself and they are all Cecilia approved! I hope you little one enjoys them as much as she does.
Broccoli and Cheddar Patties – This was one of the first finger foods I made for Cecilia and she gobbled them up. These patties are great because not only do they have the cheddar and broccoli, but they also have sweet potato which my little one loves. These are also super soft, too, once baked, so I had no problem just giving her a couple and letting her do her thing. Oh, and the ones she didn’t finish? I totally ate!
Chicken and Carrot Meatballs – Yum, yum, yum! So much good stuff in these and so much great flavor. I love the flavor the green onions provide and I love eating the extras Cecilia leaves behind!
Oatmeal Blueberry Applesauce Muffins – These muffins are delicious! Travis and I have even had them for breakfast on occasion. I always have all of the ingredients on hand, so that’s a plus since I don’t need to make a special grocery trip if I want to whip up a batch. These freeze really well, so I love making a ton and storing them for future breakfasts and snacks.
Spinach and Banana Muffins – These were all the rage on Facebook a few months ago, so I had to make them to see what all the fuss was about. They are super simple to make and are packed full of good stuff for the littles. Cecilia LOVES having a muffin with some fruit for breakfast, so this is a great nutrient-rich option for her.
Strawberry Oatmeal Smoothie – This smoothie started my current smoothie-making obsession. It has great flavor and consistency and putting it in a straw cup was a great incentive for Cecilia to master the new skill in no time.
Spinach Artichoke Pizza – I LOVE this recipe. I make four little pizzas using Trader Joe’s whole wheat pizza dough and freeze the rest of the spinach spread. I’ve also used the spread in quesadillas and on crackers. It is so yummy!
