I’m not feeding my toddler enough. I need more ideas!
Now that I’m weaning Raffi is hunnnnngrryyyy. He eats like he’s never seen food before. He only has about 2 oz of cow’s milk throughout the day so I really need to pack in the food.
Here is a typical day of food for him:
Breakfast: 1 egg, 1/2 slice toast, 5 strawberries
Snack: cheese stick, maybe 6-8 Annie’s Homegrown Cheddar Bunnies Baked Crackers
Lunch: 10 bites chicken, 1/2 avocado
Snack: YoBaby peach yogurt
Dinner: 3 mini meatballs, 1 cup peas, 15 blueberries, 3 bites bread
I need more food ideas, specifically for snacks on the go. My friend M introduced us to Ella’s Kitchen Nibbly Fingers which he loves, and we also like Little Duck Organics Tiny Fruits, but I don’t want to be stuck in the same rotation of 5-6 snacks. Any ideas? Does it seem like I’m underfeeding him? He’s 19 lbs and he gets HANGRY sometimes in between those meals. I often add a 2nd afternoon snack of avocado, grapes, graham crackers or cheese.
Here’s a list of our favorite snacks:
thin apple slices
grapes cut in half
strawberries cut in half or fourths
slices of watermelon with the rind on
slices of cantaloupe with the rind left on
Annie’s cheddar bunnies

I’d love to read about what your toddler typically eats in a day, and I’d love more snack ideas too.
