About Toddler Meal Tips
My child likes to eat chicken nuggets / tenders and fries, waffles, and pancakes. She also enjoys fruit, muffins, and occasionally hotdogs, spaghetti, and raw broccoli. She picks at other things sparingly. This may sound like a nice, big menu for a two year old, but it sure doesn’t feel like it. I’m constantly struggling to make sure my daughter eats enough! For the past year, we’ve been hearing from the pediatrician that Natalie is very small for her age compared to other kids. (I’m just over 5-foot myself, so the apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree…) My baby eats like a bird and it shows – she is in less than the 5th percentile for her age in weight and finally came up to 14% for height! And I’m tired of hearing about it!!
I started Toddler Meal Tips as a fun and creative way to share toddler meal ideas and fun kids’ food recipes with other parents, and also to chronicle our own adventures in food and snacks. This site is also helpful as a creative outlet as I navigate my way through getting my kid to eat (enough).
If you have any questions, comments, tips, or even your own recipes to share, I’d love to hear from you! Please drop me a line at kate(at)toddlermealtips(dot)com.
