Re: Tell me what your child eats on a daily basis-I need healthy ideas

We eat a lot of dried fruits and nuts.
I puree some veggies and throw in smoothies or muffins! They never notice!

I do a lot of smoothies too- I normally make him one in the morning and give it to him as his drink with each meal. I normally do coconut milk with various fruit and some carob powder so it tastes kinda chocolatey.

Hummus on toast, Grape tomatoes, grapes, watermelon, apples, pears, blueberries (my LO loves fruit), baked tofu, avocado slices. baked kale chips (sounds weird but so delicious and a great way to get my LO to eat greens- he loves them I have a recipe for some on my blog here. Plus they get nice and crumbly so you dont have to worry about them being able to chew the greens.

Spaghetti squash with marinara is another hit. My LO loves tomato sauce.

Black beans and either rice or pasta and a sprinkle of cheese, some chopped red pepper if we have it

Leftover cooked veggies packed in single serve snack cups that she can help herself to at any time

The usual cracker, cheese stick, fruits and veggies

Usually scrambled organic eggs for breakfast with a cup of almond milk.
Banana or blue berries for a snack.
Tuna for lunch, or beans (kidney, black).
Applesauce for another snack.
Chicken usually for dinner with gluten free pasta or rice and vegetables.
He gets a bed time snack usually grapes or something.
In the diaper bag I keep fruit cups and larabars.

We are all gluten free/ dairy free at our house. My son eats a lot, probably more than me! Haha

Baked wheat tortila chips (make our own), raisins, nuts, baby carrots, lots of fruit, and I use Kids protein bars too. My DS snacks a lot so I try to keep munchies that have protein, carbs and fruit/veg options constantly out. He fights me on meals so we like our snacks.

I find I have to eat it in front of ds multiple times, that's how he eventually ate tomatoes. Also he could prefer crunchy stuff to soft. Then try freeze dried veggies from Just Tomatoes. Ds loved the bananas, strawberries and veggies.
