Am thinking of just frying up some chicken bits with stir fry veg and some noodles, with a bit of honey, lime, soy sauce and sherry. Is this a bit OTT for a toddler? If so can anyone recommend anything stir-fryish that I could make?

my 3 yr old loves it

Mine would have loved it as toddlers and still would now. Try and see. There's always beans on toast if they don't like it!

Mine does - but it depends on what yours normally eats.

He likes noodles but finds them a bit tricky - he loves rice and stir fry all stuck together with the sauce.

My DS1 would from an early age, DS2 wouldn't touch it with a barge pole.

yes. if hungry.

DS loves it (3.5), especially the noodles.

Kids should eat what we eat. If you don't try them thry won't get to like it.

dd has always loved stir fries, esp the noodles like everyone's said. grin

Egg-fried rice also a favourite

Ds loves things like that - his fave in fact - make sure you cut up the noodles on the plate/bowl for your toddler though cos they are tricky and can be sucked back a choke if left too long!

My ds has eaten stir fry from around 10 months, so I would say yes.

Excellent! Not sure why I thought it might pose a problem now. Thanks.

Nemo2007 Sun 16-Sep-07 21:33:31

I make stir fry for my lot all the time 3,21m,and 8m

Mine love stir-fry. DS1 sometimes takes it to school for lunch in his hot food container.

Aitch Sun 16-Sep-07 21:35:32

i'm not sure i agree about the cutting-up, though. like mawbroon's baby, mine's been eating noodles for ages. i'd say if there's going to be a choke (never has been, but still) then leaving them long means the baby can pull them back out when it goes too far back. smile

Nemo2007 Sun 16-Sep-07 21:38:19

must admit I dont cut up, everyone gets it dished up as is..none have ever had a problem.

DS1 once managed to get a noodle stuck in his nose. He was making an awful retching noise and i couldn't figure out what was wrong till I saw the noodle poking out of his nose. One end was hanging out of his nose, the other end down his throat. Had to pull it out very carefully.

O M G! shock very carefully...

mawbroon Sun 16-Sep-07 22:40:37

I cut the noodles for ds and after hearing that story Lyra, I will continue to do so until he is 25 wink

I give ds rice noodles as he has an egg allergy and they tend to be a bit cliumpier which seems to make it easier for him.

Lord Lyra <shudder>
Dd has been eating noddles (uncut) since about 7 mths...

There's a reason wagamamas is always full of kids smile

mawbroon Sun 16-Sep-07 22:42:25

What does cliumpier mean? blush

Must go to bed. shock

WriggleJiggle Sun 16-Sep-07 22:43:41

Noodles + dd = instant happiness. She has had them since being weaned and certainly doesn't like them being cut up - spoils the fun of sucking them up like spaghetti!

Aitch Sun 16-Sep-07 22:47:06

so true about wagamamas... grin

Both mine adore noodles, and always have done. Ds2 would even eat the veg!
