Toddler Meal Ideas

I can’t even believe how long it’s been since I’ve posted! Life has been good, which I’m thankful for! We just started potty training two days ago (kind of), which entails Turner walking around the house naked and me following him around with his potty asking, “Do you have to go pee pee?” to which he replies “NO” and then pees on the floor. I’m not quite committed to it, because I don’t really have the time, so I don’t have an exact plan. I’m just sort of seeing if he takes an interest. If not, we might table it for a few months. I’ll keep you posted!

Turner and I have our daily routine, and a big part of that is food! I love to cook and experiment with food, so I try to come up with healthy meals and snacks for him when I have the time. As many of you know, Turner loves food. But lately, he’s gotten pickier with what he eats. I have to be extra sneaky about it. I guess he’s really becoming a toddler. I’m always searching pinterest and other blogs for toddler food ideas, so I thought it would be helpful to share a few of mine!
