If you have been following my Instagram account, you may have noticed that at the beginning of this year I began documenting Miss Monica’s meals. Since then, I’ve compiled a bunch of them and thought I’d share my top 12 toddler meal ideas with you to help you get inspired!
Frozen mini waffles are a great way to start the day. I (and my little) like Earth’s Best Organic and it’s not just because Cookie Monster is on the box! Eggo also makes mini waffles, though they aren’t whole grain and don’t be fooled by the flavored varieties which are loaded with sugar. Pair 4 waffles with some fruit & yogurt (or hardboiled egg) for a balanced and delicious breakfast you and your little one will love.
I love using frozen proteins when time is tight and munchkin is hangry! Here are four of my favorites.
