Tips for Making Easy Toddler Recipes
- Freezer-Friendly: a great way to make feeding toddler super easy is to always have a stash of toddler-approved meals in the freezer. If I have any leftovers I will simply place them in the freezer for a later meal. This works great for muffins, waffles, meatballs, chicken nuggets, etc. Basically anything you can find in the frozen section of the grocery store can be frozen with your own homemade recipes. You can also make a double batch of your kiddo’s favorite recipes so you can have a backup plan when life gets crazy (or toddler gets demanding;).
- Make Once – Serve Again: if I am making a bigger meal (anything over 30 minutes for dinner) I will always save the leftovers to use for another toddler meal. You can serve the same meal or use parts of the meal in another meal altogether – chicken can be added into cheese quesadillas, pasta can be served with a different sauce, soup can be served with different sides like grilled cheese or turkey sandwich or used as a sauce for pasta or rice.
- Quick Meals: a key way to not lose your mind is to always have a list (and the ingredients) for a quick meal for toddlers. Print out or make a list of these easy breakfast, lunch and dinner ideas and keep them on hand for when life is super crazy and your toddler needed to eat 10 minutes ago.
