9 Toddler-and-Mom Friendly Recipes

When my son went from baby foods to solids I was at a bit of a loss as to what to feed him and me. He isn’t too picky (as long as the veggies are flavored or disguised in recipes), but I was still having a hard time figuring out what to make us for snacks and lunches that we would both enjoy.

After asking some of my wonderful blogging friends what they liked to eat with their toddlers, I rounded up these 9 recipes that both my son and I love! And most of them are very quick, easy, and healthy.

I hope you enjoy these as much as we do. Click on the titles to find the recipes.

1. Loaded Apple Slices– These are easy and very filling snacks.

2. Macaroni and Cheese with small bite sized pieces of cooked broccoli- This is the only way I can get my son to eat broccoli. Further, I like Mac and Cheese much more with broccoli than stand alone. Thus, when I make this recipe we both are happy to eat it. (There is not a recipe for this, just cook your favorite mac and cheese and add small pieces of cooked broccoli).

3. Almond Butter and Fruit Waffle Sandwich– This is a quick, filling, and healthy breakfast that we all love.


4. Chicken Cordon Blue Cups– These are absolutely delicious. Many moms have commented that their kids and toddlers love them!

8. Granola Bar Bites– Another amazing snack. You can make them ahead if desired.  Either way, you probably want to double this because they’ll probably go quick.
