How to Feed a Toddler
I'm stuck in a rut with what I feed Brandt. It's so hard to find new & nutritious meals that he will eat. I have the same rotation of foods that we go through every few days and I feel like his diet is lacking. How many times can he eat chicken nuggets (whole grain), pasta, quesadillas, grilled cheese, or salad? I have to give the kid credit, though, because he's always been a huge fan of salad. How many 2 & 3 year olds have you seen eat a full plate of lettuce when they're at Peter Piper Pizza? And he does like green beans, carrots & broccoli. But I struggle with what to feed him for his main dish. He doesn't like sandwiches or peanut butter (like father, like son). Any suggestions on meal ideas that are toddler-friendly?
