Do any of you mamas out there get into a rut? It is time to feed your baby/toddler and you walk into the kitchen and can’t think of a dang thing to feed him/her? Or you feel as though they eat the same things day in and day out? I definitely feel like this. So I decided to share with you wonderful moms out there how to get out of the food rut. You would think after 5 kids I would always have these amazing food ideas but I still find myself searching for new things to feed the babies.
Please do not judge me! I feel as though we can be so judgemental about parenting. Too much sugar, too much dairy, not enough dairy so on and so forth. You get the point. We are all trying our best. Here are just some quick, healthy (ier-ish) ideas.
Strawberries (halved or quartered)
Red or green Grapes (halved or quartered)
Blueberries (frozen or not)
Apples (peeled and cut in cubes)
Peaches (canned or cut)
Watermelon (my babies and toddler will suck on this forever. Also GREAT for teething)
Dried Fruit (raisins, craisins)
Smoothies (HERE is one of our favorite recipes)
Corn (my babies and toddlers love to eat and chew on it on the cob)
Steamed Broccoli, Cauliflower, carrots
Olives (these can be quite fun as well)
Protein & Dairy
Deli Turkey or ham
Pinto or Black beans
Turkey Hot dogs (cut small)
Hard Boiled eggs
Pasta (whole wheat)
Pancakes (I make a ton of extra of THESE on Sunday and keep them frozen to give out during the week.)
