Toddler meal time essentials

Rylie is now a very active one year old and her eating habits have quickly become extraordinary! She constantly likes to snack and munch on everything! I don’t think I remember the last time I had “my own meal” without a sweet lil face peaking up at me and begging me for a bite, or two, or the whole thing haha! Meal time is definitely something we take serious in the Clark house and one thing that I have found works best for a toddler with a BIG appetite is being fully prepared! All the playing around they do works up their constant hunger so it’s important to be fully stocked up on all the healthy food essentials and right products you can easily put together to make a complete meal! This New Year, I’ve started to meal prep my family’s meals so that we eat healthy, complete meals 3 times a day and have fresh ready to eat snacks. I’ve provided a list of healthy foods I like to have on hand to put together easy meals for my family. There is nothing on this list that my toddler does not like!

-lean beef
-other fatty fish
-sweet potato 
-ground turkey 
-green beans 
-chicken breast 
-fruit strips 
-string cheese 
-medley potatoes
-cherry tomatoes

Rylie LOVES frittatas for breakfast its a usual around our house! Super easy and affordable to make too! I like to pair it with a side of fruit!

A toddler’s meal is never complete without a BIG MESS, but thankfully there are products that make meal time easier, productive, and more fun! Since the very beginning, we’ve been using Nuby products because they are effective and so affordable! Rylie is starting to graduate to using utensils now and we’ve been using their stainless steel feeding set. When she turned one, we started placing these utensils on her tray and would encourage/show her how to pick up food with spoons and forks. Little by little she’s been getting the hang of it, and when she does it herself we celebrate her and praise her by shouting YAY’S  and clapping so that she knows to do it again! You can tell she’s proud of herself too and it’s the cutest thing! These utensils have an easy grip + handle and I love that they look closest to adult utensils easy for her to recognize.

Meal-prepped meal; Cinnamon sweet potatoes, 
green beans, and ground turkey!

I am a fan of Nuby’s Sure Grip Miracle Placemat, but I’ve also been enjoying seeing her handle their bowls! Our favorites are the Sure Grip Miracle bowl and the Bamboo Cornstarch feeding bowl they are both easy to clean, sized just right for toddlers, dishwasher safe, and BPA free!

Last but not least, my favorite must have hassle free product from Nuby has got to be their 3D Silicon Bib! The scoop saves all the food that Rylie drops from falling in her high chair, which means minimal clean up for me and also wipes clean! It’s so perfect for on-the-go feeding because it rolls up easy to stick in your diaper bag!

    I wish my kids were as good of eaters! Fruit is a must but it’s harder with veggies and proteins like eggs and meats
