Toddler Food Ideas

Strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, peas and hummus.

Ever get bored feeding your toddler the same food every day, but can’t think of fresh ideas? There’s so many options out there but sometimes my mind just goes blank. I asked my mom friends on Instagram what their kiddos have been eating and loving lately and put them all together in a list! I loosely organized them by food groups so it’s easier to sort through and find what you’re looking for.

Hope this helps you and your littles find some new favorites! If you have ideas that aren’t on the list make sure to leave a comment below!
