WHAT CAN WE EAT?

There are a thousand, no, a MILLION things you learn when you become a parent. What your kid can and can't eat is just one of them, not to mention when they should start eating those things. And for every thing you have to learn, there are a million opinions behind them.
I've always known that variety was important, but when it came to feeding Chelsea, I was at a loss. What did babies eat? What foods are okay and not okay? What foods have the right nutrients that she needs? As soon as Chelsea got teeth, it got easier, but I still struggle with lunch-time repetitiveness. Today, I decided that the PB and J reign needs to end. I need to get more creative and spend a little more time deciding what Chelsea will eat and being willing to spend a little more time preparing it. Lucky for me, one of my friends on FB asked the question for me and one of her friends gave a super stellar response. So here's my list.
  1. Avocado sandwiches
  2. Bananas
  3. Chopped soft fruit
  4. Muffins (w/ fruits and veggies)
  5. Scrambled eggs
  6. Pancakes
  7. Chopped deli meat
  8. Watermelon
  9. Brown rice
  10. Mashed potatoes
  11. Steamed carrots
  12. Chopped chicken
  13. Soup
  14. Egg salad
  15. Peeled and cut grapes
  16. Raisins (cut)
  17. Noodles
  18. Cheese
  19. Tomatoes
  20. Beans
  21. Whole-grain bread (cut into small pieces)
  22. Whole-grain cereals
  23. Yogurt
  24. Peas
  25. Lightly toasted whole-grain bread
  26. Cream of Wheat
  27. Oatmeal
  28. Cottage Cheese
Anything else? Anything on here that's not really all that nutritious that I don't know about? Leave a comment and share some of your little one's favorite meals/snacks and help a girl out. Thanks for stopping by!

  1. One thing we use all the time is flavored cream cheese, spread on whole wheat pita or english muffins. It acts as glue and then you can "stick" other things to it like veggies or fruit. And since its flavored it makes everything taste yummier (we especially like strawberry and garden vegetable!) the combinations are endless.

    I have to ask, why peel grapes? haha..

    1. What a great idea. Although, I don't know how much of the cream cheese Chelsea would actually get. I guess you could call me a cream cheese junkie!
      To be perfectly honest, I don't peel them, but that's what was recommended. I think it's probably because there are concerns about the possibility of grape skins obstructing the airway or something.

  2. This is a great go to list, especially on weeks where I feel like I am feeding my 10 month old the same things everyday!
