We have mastered a spoon, people! And true to form, on the day I last posted about toddler food, and how little variety Abby ate, she started eating everything under the sun. I can now stop wondering if I should start planting grape vines in the back yard in an effort to save money, and get on with the business of feeding my kid a rainbow every day. Huzzah!
This was back in the “before”, so she didn’t eat any of it, just stuck her finger in each piece of kiwi fruit.
She’d still stick her finger in it now, but she’d eat it too.
The frittata is the silverbeet and pumpkin ones I posted here.
Baby yakisoba – lots of fun! I boiled organic ramen for three minutes, adding carrots, broccoli and capsicum in the last two minutes. Cabbage just before I drained the lot. Then stirred in a tiny bit of soy sauce and a dash of sweet chilli.
This night was baked beans and cheese on a wholemeal roll with mandarines. Ended up eating the whole mandarine and picking out the cheese.
Terrible photo here, but the lights in my kitchen had blown – ugh. Anyway, we were having crumbed tofu with apricot sauce and brown rice for dinner, so I kept a few out for her and both drizzled them with the sauce and did a little dipping area, which she hasn’t got the hang of yet. The sauce is just 400ml apricot nectar and a packet of french onion soup boiled until thick. Tofu is Pureland Organic (pretty much the only one I will eat at home after MUCH trial and error!) coated in egg and then in a mixture of wholegrain and panko breadcrumbs. Baked in a hot oven 15 minutes.
This was also in the “before”, so the pasta, tomato sauce and grated cheese just got moved from the plate to the high chair tray and back. No eating took place whatsoever.
And finally, two-potato fritters (recipe coming soon) with oven fries.
I’ve so many ideas now that she eats more widely (like, overnight. kids are weird, man!) so am excited to share with you!
