Good morninggggg toddler feeders!
I noticed my little ones ate very well in the morning so this prompted me to challenge the traditional breakfast. We choose homemade, healthy options to start our day. With the peanut and milk allergy we avoid traditional processed cereals. It may seem odd to see sweet potato on a breakfast plate but we love to start our day with complex carbohydrates whenever we can. These are even leftover Tex-Mex sweet potatoes. They are already prepped from the night before, which makes this a Monday morning win! The frozen peas are also a morning favourite and I don’t mind because they are actually a source of protein and vitamin K.
The blueberries are freshly picked from a local farm and are absolutely delicious. I cut them up much smaller for my younger one. I sometimes leave them whole or sometimes cut the larger ones in half for my oldest (over the age of 2), depending how large and soft they are. Just make sure to always monitor your child while they are eating and cut foods that could be potential choking into appropriate sized pieces.
Grapes are cut into eighths for my youngest and I use a feeder to let her chew on them. My new favourite thing is freezing them before using in the feeder so they also help when her teeth are cutting through (win-win really). You can find information on our favourite feeders here! For my toddler we still cut the grapes into small pieces, quartered is the minimum (sliced lengthwise), as recommended by The Canadian Paediatric Society. I saved this PIN as a visual reminder.
Note : these fun apple trays are available here!
