Munchkin Meals: Join Up Fun

18 Jul

I came across Brittany’s blog, A Healthy Slice of Life, about a month ago (I think I was looking for baby sleep schedules, of course).  Her little one, Hailey, is just a few weeks older than Matty, so it’s nice to see what other kids his age are up to, even if it’s just on the internet.  She’s also doing BLW with Hailey, so she often posts about how that’s going and what she is eating.  Brittany had the idea over the past couple of weeks that EVERYONE should blog about what their kids are eating, then link up so that we all get a bunch of ideas of what to feed our kiddos.  Count me in!  This week’s focus is on lunch, so let’s take a peek at Matty’s lunch on Monday, shall we?

  • Homemade Spaghetti-o’s (pasta & jarred, organic tomato-basil sauce)–Good for Mom, too!
  • Scrambled Egg (just egg, no milk)
  • Steamed Broccoli (drizzled with olive oil)
  • Boiled Carrot (boiled w/pasta for super-easiness, also drizzled in olive oil)

He loves spaghetti, so I thought he’d love the Spaghetti-o’s since he could pick them up easier, but he was just luke-warm about them.  He had the leftovers the next day and seemed to enjoy them more.  We’re working on eating cooked carrots–yes, he enjoys RAW carrots.  This was fine when he had no teeth, and okay when he only had top teeth, but now that he can bite, I’m a bit wary of the little pieces he can bite off.

And because I’m always curious about how much other kids actually EAT, he ate about half the egg, just a few bites/fistfuls of the spaghetti-o’s, 1 bite of the carrot, and most of the broccoli.

And because no post is complete without a picture of the cutie…

Please ignore the horrible pictures; I found a rogue fingerprint on my lens after reviewing these pics–you’ll only need one guess to figure out who put that there…

    Love the boiled carrot- it looks like a really easy way for your little guy to safely munch on a veggie. He is a cutie! 🙂
