What are your easy quick meals for 13 month old?
She's a good eater ...but feel like I'm running out of ideas.
I'm trying to be really healthy but adventurous with her dinners...but finding it hard. Always resort to roast chicken, sweet pot and veggies when I'm tired!!!
Help me mums!!
I've only cooked one meal and DDs eat whatever we were eating. Is that an option?
On days when DH and I may be having a late night takeaway, DDs will usually have:
Pasta with homemade sauce and veg/meat
Pitta pizza bread
French toast with beans/hoops
Homemade chicken nuggets with sweet potato chips and veg/salad
Eggs are quick and easy - scrambled, dippy eggs, omelettes
Picnic - hummus, cheese, veg sticks, fruit, bread or wraps or pittas
Baked potato or sweet potato with tuna / cheese / veg sticks or baked beans
Soup and a sandwich - tomato and lentil was DD’s favourite and very healthy
Savoury pancakes or muffins
Pasta and sauce
on days at home I would cook in the morning/during naps and just reheat for tea - which takes longer but is usually easy to do - Shepard’s pie, pasta bakes, stews and casseroles, curries etc
Muffin or pitta pizzas www.thebestideasforkids.com/english-muffin-pizza/
Tuna burgers served without the buns. This recipe is easily halved and the extra burger keeps for a day in the fridge. www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/5863/tuna-sweetcorn-burgers
Sweetcorn fritters www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/toddler-recipe-sweetcorn-spinach-fritters Extra fritters can be frozen.
Falafel burgers www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/5605/falafel-burgers
Smoky bacon noodles www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/8035/smoky-bacon-pot-noodle-for-one
These are fantastic!
Keep them coming....
Any healthy treats? Cakes or desserts you make?
DD loves Greek yogurt and chopped blueberries....but keen to hear others dessert ideas
Mine love 'sticky' rice - basically break all the rules of making normal fluffy rice so don't soak it or wash it, just put it straight in a pan with boiling water, cook till done and stir in a dash of soy. Making it gluggy makes it far less messy too! I just serve with stir fried veg/tofu etc.
These muffins are pretty healthy and go down well with little ones - https://mykidslickthebowl.com/baby-led-weaning-muffins-apple-banana-carrot/
