Toddler Food: What Miss G Eats {15}

Toddler FoodOur 15th Toddler Food post…  Crazy!  Here’s this week’s question:

What are Gracen’s favourite foods?  I mean, things she’ll ALWAYS eat.

Good question!  While she eats almost everything, as she gets older, she’s definitely becoming more vocal about wanting certain things at certain times.  So although she may love bananas, she may not want a banana at the time you offer her one.

Here are the things she will almost never turn down: tofu cubes, steamed edamame beans, yogurt, watermelon, nuts, seeds, cottage cheese, crackers (especially these and these), energy bites, steamed carrots, avocado, frozen blueberries, granola, and freeze-dried berries.  Oh, and I mustn’t forget, what she calls ‘treats’… Organic, no-sugar-added fruit leather.  But who in their right mind would turn that down? 

Here’s some of what my munchkin ate this week…

    Reblogged this on Life with a two year old and commented:
    Great ideas for toddler food – I often struggle to think of things to make for Noah and worry about him getting a varied diet, will certainly try some of these out.
