Are you feeling lost when it comes to feeding a toddler? In this toddler meal plan, I share what my toddler eats in a week for breakfast, lunch, and snacks. These healthy toddler meals are quick and easy to prepare.
Mix and match these foods to create a variety of meal combinations. For dinner, it is best to serve your toddler whatever the rest of the family is eating. There is no need to make a separate meal. Just cut their food into easy to eat pieces. A mini food processor works great to make dishes like spaghetti and fettuccini easier to eat. Offer a cup of milk or water with every meal.

Boil baby carrots until soft and store in the fridge.

Final thoughts on this 5-Day Toddler Meal Plan
Don’t stress overfeeding your toddler. Offer foods like fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and protein. Plus calcium-rich foods like cheese and yogurt. Your little one will get the nutrients they need to grow and develop. Always speak to your Pediatrician regarding any concerns you may have.
I hope your little one enjoys these meals and snacks as much as mine does!
