Looking for some new toddler meal ideas? Those little fingers want to dig in and help feed themselves, so what better than to make bite size foods that can easily be held for self-feeding. By no means does toddler food mean it needs to lack flavour, either. Here is a great collection of simple recipes for toddlers to extend the usual repertoire, with a good range of flavours and textures for those fussy eaters too!
One of the great things about a lot of these recipes is that they’re a great way to sneak lots of extra veggies into your child’s meals! Having your children try and eat different vegetables when they’re younger will hep develop a healthy palette and a greater range of food acceptance as they grow and develop.
