Let’s Talk About What My Little Guy Ate Today!
My little guy is almost ten months now and at nine months we moved from two full meals a day to three full meals a day and let me tell you…adding in that extra meal was more challenging than I thought it would be! I do my best to create meals that offer him options that are all healthy and yummy and I try to switch up what I am giving him as much as I can and it can be difficult to come up with ideas. Everyday we are trying new foods and trying out new meal ideas so I wanted to share three easy and nutritious meal ideas that my little guy loves! I truly hope you find this helpful!
Breakfast Meal Idea: Omelette with Spinach & Cherry Tomatoes, Avocado with Hemp Hearts, Steamed Broccoli, Greek Yogurt with Cinnamon and Banana with Chia Seeds
This meal is high in Protein from the Egg and the Greek Yogurt. He is getting a good amount of veggies from the Spinach and Broccoli. Bananas are rich in Potassium and Calcium. Cherry Tomatoes and Avocados have some great nutients as well and we threw in some extra nutrition by adding Chia Seeds and Hemp Hearts into this meal.
Lunch Meal Idea: Tofu, Cucumber, Steamed Sweet Potato
Tofu is an awesome food for Baby Led Weaning, it is soft in texture and super healthy. To make it I either steam it or in this meal I put it in a pan with some oil on the stove for 3 minutes on each side. Tofu is high in Calcium, Iron, Fiber and Protein. Cucumbers & Sweet Potatoes also have lots of nutrients` such as Vitamin A and Vitamin C.
Dinner Meal Idea: Red Lentil Pasta with No Salt Added Tomato Sauce, Steamed Zucchini, and Thawed Blueberries & Blackberries
Lentil Pasta is Bennett’s new favorite and I love it because it is high in Protein and amino acids such as isoleucine and lysine. They are also packed with fiber while still remaining low in fat and cholesterol and sodium. Plus it is so yummy so I always make extra Lentil Pasta for myself! My little guy loves Zucchinis and I do too because they are high in Vitamin A and C. Blueberries and Blackberries are incredibly nutrient dense with good amounts of Vitamin C, K and Fiber.
