23 Toddler meals and ideas

I'm finally sharing another What I Ate Wednesday post! Today is a bit special because I managed to snap photos of my sidekick's meals. I'm quite excited about this as well because this is the first week that I have been back in the kitchen since my accident.

We had tons of fresh fruit and veggies stocked up in the fridge (because I had seriously missed them since being in the hospital and rehabilitation centre) and incorporated them as much as possible into every meal.

Mr. Toddler also needed the detox from french fries and candy that he had been getting since I'm not around as much. The kiddo was actually quite happy with the extra veg and fruits and amazed me with how eagerly he devoured them! 

I have to say though that I can definitely tell a change in Mr. Toddler's behaviour based on the days that he does consume more junk food as opposed to the days that he... well... doesn't. No sugar rush means he listens very well, can play relatively calmly, and we generally avoid major meltdowns. Sugary, processed foods? Oh man! The tantrums, running away, and even throwing objects are sure to happen as he cannot contain his energy. I definitely try to avoid them. 


Anyhow, let's get to it! Here is a look at the meals Mr. Toddler enjoyed on Monday!
