Feeding A Toddler
Feeding a toddler is a full-time job in itself. Three meals a day PLUS snacks in between. We keep the diaper bag stocked with snacks at all times and have even more fresh and healthy snacks at home. Today I am sharing the tips, tricks and favorites that we have when it comes to feeding Peyton!
Munchkin Snack Catcher // First up, these snack catcher cups! There was definitely a little learning curve with these. It took Peyton a little while to figure out exactly how to retrieve the snacks, but now that she has, life is much easier. She can independently eat these snacks all over the house and they (almost) never spill out.
Cloud Island Stainless Forks // Just in the last couple weeks we have started introducing forks and spoons to Peyton. She is slowly learning, but she is mostly just picking the food up with the fork, then taking it off the fork with the other hand and putting it in her mouth. These are a great first utensil option!
GoGo Squeez Applesauce // One of Peyton’s favorites! She is still not trusted enough to handle one of these applesauce packages by herself but I think we are ALMOST there.
Mickey Mouse Goldfish // Goldfish in small baggies, but make it Mickey Mouse! These are so easy to just grab on the go. I get these at Target, Publix or Walmart!
Cloud Island Stainless Spoons // Just like the forks I talked about above! We are using the forks more than the spoons right now, but still have these and use them occasionally!
Munchkin Splash Divided Plate // For all those kids out there that hate their food touching! I love fixing Peyton’s meals putting them on little plates, they are always so beautiful with all the colors!
Cloud Island Silicone Bowls // The sweetest little bowls! These are great for cereals, snack mixes, or fruit assortments!
Summer Infant Pop N’ Dine // You have heard me talk about this high chair before. It is seriously the number one baby item I would recommend to everyone. We usually keep this chair at Andrew’s parents house since we eat over there so often. But other times I just keep it in my trunk and we seriously use it just as much as we would a stroller that I also keep in my trunk.
Mini Nilla Wafers Cookies // Peyton’s favorite cookies! Or in her words “cooks”! Again, these can be bought at Target, Publix and Walmart.
Munchkin Soft-Tip Infant Spoons // These are the first spoons we started Peyton on when she started baby food at 4 months old. We continue to use these to this day with yogurt, ice cream, etc. It’s a great started spoon! We have like three packs and and just keep one in every bag we ever carry!
Nutri-Grain Kids Breakfast Bars // This is probably Peyton’s number one favorite snack. They are healthy, but have the appearance of a cookie- it’s a win win! You can get these in a single flavor at Target, but we usually buy the two flavor variety pack from Sam’s Club!
Graco Table2Table High Chair // This is the high chair that we use at home! This is the one that we registered for and use it every single day. It has 7 different settings so it grows with your baby. One thing that I especially love about it is that whenever Peyton has a friend come over for dinner, I can easily turn this one high chair into TWO!
What are some of your toddlers favorite snacks!?
Wish they had that high chair when my kids were little. That’s an awesome find!! Thanks for sharing
