Tried and True Toddler Foods

Egg on your face!

When Evie was an infant, I couldn't WAIT for her to be old enough to eat solid foods. Now that she gets all her nutrition from solids, I try (TRY) to make her diet as nutritious and varied as possible.

Some of Evie's favorite snacks lately:

Kale Chips---These are phenomenal
Popcorn---cooked on the stove with coconut oil or olive oil and just a little salt
Frozen Blueberries---She could eat these all.day.long.  We buy the organic frozen ones from TJ's
Whole Milk Yogurt---I mix it up the night before with chia seeds, hemp seeds, and a little mashed banana
Cheese---we've been using the raw milk cheddar from TJ's
Smoothies---I try to always hide some kale or spinach in them. You can't taste it at all, promise!
Larabars---Great because some of them taste like a treat, but they only have, like, 3 ingredients. Evie's favorite is Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter.
Summer Fruit---Watermelon, Mango, Grapes, Berries, and Cherries!
Fruit and Vegetable Juices---We've been juicing it ourselves and Evie loves it.  Sometimes I'll blend it with some banana or an avocado to make it thick like a smoothie.


Hope this gives you mamas some fresh ideas, if you've been in a snack slump lately!
