i am chasing baby Guest Post ~ Toddler Bites


by Katy at i am chasing baby...

Since Stella graduated from purees and mush to solids a few months back, we've been having so much fun introducing her newbie palette to the wonderful world of "real people food."  When you're grub obsessed, there is nothing more gratifying than sharing that love with the very ones that matter the most!  And the word on the street is that this willingness to down anything we put in front of this toddler may not last forever, so we're trying to take advantage of the adventure while we can.

Just a few of Stella's favorite dishes, as of the past few weeks:

Ravioli with Cottage Cheese, Peas and Baked Chicken

Steamed Broccoli with Whole Milk Yogurt

Polenta with Turkey Meatballs and Red Sauce

Cheese and Black Bean Quesadilla with Avocado 

I know, it's really not brain science.  I am no Siri!  But the great thing about the above is that everything can be mixed and matched or combined.  Ingredients can be swapped depending on if you're low on this or that and additional foods you have on hand can be added, if you need to shake things up a bit.

And speaking of shaking it up...

Though Ari and I do our very best to ensure variety in Stella's diet, meals can get repetitive and we will get to a point after a few weeks when we ask... has she been eating too much of the same old same old?  That's where other Moms, friends, bloggers, and the brilliant Siriously Delicious (kiddo goodies HERE) come in to play.  I call/email/write/google/ask the "whatareyoufeedingyourkidslately" question and voila, our menu gets a makeover. 

Now, I ask YOU to please share your babe's go-tos with us.  Tell us what are you whipping up?  Is it something you can sneak a bite of, yourself?  Because you know Ari and I get in on those quesadillas... mmmmsogood.

This is so helpful! My guy is 10 months and just moving on to finger foods. I am seriously stumped for his lunches some days. Bookmarking!

Thanks for this - I too have a 15 month old who eats everything but is slowly learning to be PICKY!! So I am trying to introduce fun things and let him taste everything.
