Munchkin Meals: 15 Months

Posted Jan 03 2013 6:00am

Really excited to be linking up again with Munchkin Meals this month with my friend Brittany at A Healthy Slice of Life .  I had the pleasure of meeting her and Hailey back in May (?) when they were in town visiting Savannah .  She’s just in sweet in person and Em and Hailey are long lost BFFs ;)  After showing my eats yesterday , I am ready to show you a sampling of what Emmalyne has been eating recently.

Preparing meals for an active toddler is both fun and daunting.  I aim to give Emmie a variety of foods every day.  She will be 15 months old on Sunday and loves pretty much any food put in front of her.  Currently we are at three main meals and two snacks a day plus whole milk at meals.  Girlfriend can eat ;)

Baked chicken, roasted veggies, and blue au gratin potatoes

**Dinner is typically whatever we are eating.

 

I have been really lucky that my toddler hasn’t had a picky palate.  I think a lot of this has to do with the fact that we did baby led weaning with her but that is obviously just my opinion.  Additionally, if there is something that she doesn’t like once, I keep trying.  She eats until she is full and tells me when she is done which works for us.  The only downside to her healthy appetite is having to include her in the grocery budget and when we go out to eat ;)
