Toddler Food: What Miss G Eats {12}

Toddler FoodHere it is…  Round 12 of Toddler Food.  I received a question/comment from a reader this week and thought I’d share.

I’d love to see the inside of your fridge and cupboards with all of the food you make!  Which items do you always have on hand (for each food group if you don’t mind)?

I feel like there are a ton of essentials we always try to keep on hand, but we buy many of them in bulk, so they’re not all things we buy each week, which makes grocery shopping a lot easier. Okay, here goes…

Fruits – Bananas, apples, frozen berries, canned no-salt-added tomatoes, avocado, and no-sugar-added dried fruit.

Veggies – Onions, carrots, fresh or frozen spinach, frozen peas, frozen corn, and fresh herbs.

Dairy – Whole organic milk (for Grae), skim milk (for Mama and Papa), plain organic whole milk yogurt (for Grae), vanilla greek yogurt (for Mama and Papa), old cheddar, and all-natural cream cheese.

Proteins – Chicken breasts, ground turkey, all-natural peanut butter, all-natural almond butter, almonds, walnuts, pumpkins seeds, sunflower seeds, ground flax seeds, canned no-salt-added beans, organic quinoa, and  frozen edamame beans.

Grains – Wholegrain seedy bread, healthy seedy crackers, wholewheat pasta, brown rice, organic no-sugar-added cereal, old-fashioned oats, and wholewheat flour.

Fats – Olive oil.

Oh.  And tea!  I have no idea which group it belongs in, but we always have tea in the house.  A pot of tea at the end of the day is pretty much a nightly tradition around here.

With that, here are some of the things our little lady ate this week:
