Super Healthy Oatmeal: I mentioned this one on my post about adding more nutrition in your diet. Mash 1/2 banana in a bowl (I smash with a fork – easy peasy), and stir in about 1/2 – 3/4 cups cooked oatmeal, depending on your toddler’s appetite. Add 2 heaping teaspoons of ground walnuts and 3 diced Medjool dates. I like Medjools because they’re bigger and quite soft when they’re fresh. This is my son’s favorite breakfast. In fact, he can pack away a whole cup of oatmeal with this breakfast! While I prepare it, he stays busy with the other banana half.
Savoy Cabbage Salad: I posted this one before. Toddlers with teeth can handle it because savoy is a softer cabbage with a thinner leaf.
Mashed Potatoes with Spinach and Yogurt: I know, it sounds a little icky, but my husband wanted his own when he tasted it! Mash the potatoes with a couple small glops of plain organic yogurt. Add some steamed spinach, or use spinach that was dropped in boiling water for about 15 – 20 seconds.
