Nutrient packed toddler meals

Making meals for a growing toddler gets tough some days. Baby K is good and eats most foods. He usually eats what I make for the family which makes life easy.

Since he has been sick with the flu the past couple months on and off I want to make sure he getting a lot of needed nutrients to help boost immunity!

He loves his fruits and veggies so I'm adding a lot more berries and green veggies like kale and broccoli. He is crazy for blueberries and if he sees them before his meal it's over and he will only want the blueberries ha!

We made kale chips the other night and baby k loved them! So that's a new item we added to our menu.

Now that we have the juicer I will make him fresh juice to sip too (kids should not drink more than 5oz of juice a day, I diluted the juice with water as well)

Fats are very important for a growing baby. Healthy fats like avocado. Baby K loves avocado and sometimes I spread it on his toast too.

Every week I'm looking for new healthy recipes and menu plans for baby K. If you have any meal ideas send them over my way!

A new recipe I found was chicken/veggie meatballs. I will try them this weekend and let you know how it goes!
