When we started out with the whole solid food thing, L did not have any interest. Milk was his favorite and thats all he wanted which was fine, I didn't want to make meals a bad association so I offered food often but if he refused I didn't push it.
Finally around 8 months he decided he liked food but really only liked very few baby foods, so I decided to just start offering the food we were eating. He ended up loving regular food and now he basically just eats what we eat. I am actually kind of amazed at what he eats and I know as he gets more into the throws of toddlerhood things can change daily but I have yet to offer him anything he won't eat.
The problem is, aside from dinner we don't really eat a whole lot and I know he needs to eat more but I just feel like I feed him all the same things and I don't want him eating mac and cheese and chicken nuggets every day. I know he needs more fruits and veggies and right now he likes those squeeze pack things of fruit and veggies because he likes to hold them and squeeze them but he can't eat those forever.
At breakfast he usually has oatmeal, greek yogurt, waffles, or banana. The real issue is lunch. I just never know what to feed him because I don't really eat lunch. Also on nights when I work and hubby gets home late sometimes I just don't have time to make dinner and then I'm scrounging the cabinets for something to throw together for him.
What do you feed your toddlers? I just need some new ideas!
