What My Two Year Old Eats

I’m going to start the post with a preface; my daughter has always been a great adventurous eater with a good appetite, until she turned two! I love the topic of nutrition and try to be responsible in my food choices for our growing daughter. I homemade all of her baby food with organic fruits and veggies, I started adding probiotics to her milk when she started drinking it, she didn’t have any sugar her first year of life, etc. Things quickly (and annoyingly) changed after she turned two. We now have DAILY I mean d.a.i.l.y. struggles over meals, something I’m still kind of trying to figure out! So here are some meals that we she has been eating lately.

Jasmine rice, sliced steak, stir-fry veggies, and stir-fry sauce for dipping.

As you can tell we really love the apple gate chicken sausage around here, it’s easy/nutritious and has protein. You’ll also notice a lot of these pictures are from breakfast, it’s the least crazy meal around my house. Lunch is almost always leftovers from dinner the night before or some sort of snack plate and dinner is just usually too crazy for me to remember to take a picture.

So tell me…

What’s your toddler’s favorite meal/food right now?
