Enjoying my posts on toddler nutrition?  Here’s Day 3 of “Today, my healthy toddler ate…”

Real Life Toddler Nutrition

This is an example of a slightly frazzled day for me – we had a lot of hectic things going on.  I forgot to pack his lunch for preschool the night before, so I had to do it quickly in the morning.  Little man didn’t nap, which cut into my food preparation time for dinner.  Daddy went out of town, which meant no help around dinner time and very little motivation for me to put a lot of effort into dinner.  You’ll notice a very heavy reliance on Ezekiel bread and fruit!  Soon, I hope I’ll have a post that shows a day where we go to a birthday party (Pizza!  Cake! Cookies! Cake pops!) or another atypical event.

Toddler Nutrition – Today My Healthy Toddler Ate, Day 3

Daddy and I try to make the first meal of the day his biggest and most nutritious.  We notice he eats the most at breakfast compared to any other meal time, so lately we’ve try to pack it full of protein and vegetables.  That way, we know that he has had a lot of “good stuff” – even if the rest of the day gets derailed.

Today, my healthy toddler ate….

Breakfast:  Made by daddy!  Omelette with 1 grated carrot, 2 eggs , 1/2 tomato and 1 piece bacon. 1/2 piece of ezekiel toast.  Water.

Snack:  Banana with sunbutter on it.

Lunch:  Leftover ~2-3 oz turkey bolognese (Ground turkey in  tomato sauce). 1/2 cup white bean salad with cucumbers, tomatoes, avocado, olive oil, himalayan salt and pepper.  1/2 piece of ezekiel toast.

Snack: ~ 1 cup of plain Cheerios provided by another parent at a playdate.  1 clementine.

Dinner:  1 egg made “sweet,” scrambled with Rodelle vanilla extract and a little mashed banana. 1 piece of ezekiel bread french toast, made with unsweetened almond milk and fried in coconut oil.  Topped with 1/2 tsp raw honey, spread around to cover the bread very well.
