Top Rated Toddler Recipes

This is always a hit when my young toddler is refusing to eat what I've cooked. Because I don't want to feel like a short-order cook yet I don't want to let her "starve", this works out perfectly. There's no prep time and no cook time. You just throw it in a bowl and voila! The active cultures from the yogurt are fantastic for your toddler's digestive tract. There's plenty of calcium and protein, too. I'm going to write lowered fat ingredients for ease of the recipe. However, if you prefer your young toddler (under 2) to have full-fat ingredients, go for it. That's what I do for my now 20-month old. Once she hits 24 months, I'll lower the fat content and start using low-fat yogurt and cottage cheese as it's written here. Easy breakfast, lunch or dinner when nothing else is working for that picky toddler! NOTE: This works for babies, too, if your ped has OK'd the use of dairy products for your baby.

Here is a refreshing drink that your toddler will love. Not to mention, it's packed with nutrients. In minutes you will have created a tasty treat that is filled with Vitamin A to promote digestion and healthy eyes. The banana also provides plenty of potassium to maintain proper electrolyte balance in your body and help lower your risk of high blood pressure. Lastly, the strawberries are an excellent source of Vitamin C, which helps eliminate free radicals from the body. Not to mention its YUMMY, my 15 month old loves it. I only give 4 oz servings.

Tonight was salad night in our house. Of course, with a 20-month old, that makes it tough to have the whole family involved. On a whim, I decided to let my daughter try the salad I was eating. She LOVED it! So, I gave her a couple tablespoons of mine. She scarfed that down and wanted more. Off to the kitchen I went to make her own salad for her. Now, my daughter is a picky eater, believe it or not. Since I started making recipes from this website, she's gotten quite adventurous, I must say. Anyway, she ate half of this recipe tonight in addition to the tastes she had from my salad. I'm still in shock. :D I hope your toddler likes this one as much as mine does.

This recipe is an excellent alternative to fast food french fries. The ingredients are geared towards healthy eating for your toddler, but is tasty enough for even an adult palate. They are a great way to introduce your toddler to a colorful and healthy vegetable rich in vitamins. Experiment with different sprinklings of spices such as ginger, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, etc. Whatever your family likes.

This is like my other recipe, Toddler Yottage, but with the added kick of some pureed fruits and veggies! If you've got some fruit and veggie purees in the fridge to use in your "hidden veggie" recipes, they work great in this, too, to bump up the nutritional analysis and get that toddler to eat some healthy vegetables and get some much-needed fiber.

I threw this together one night for my 13 month old twins. It was easy for them to eat with their hands, and they loved it! The ingredients are all canned, so it is easy to have on hand and throw together those nights when you just don't have the energy to be a toddler gourmet! :-)

DUE TO THE "COMMENT" ON THE RATING SECTION, I THOUGHT IT BEST THAT I POINT OUT THAT THE GROUND BEEF IS LEAN GROUND BEEF, OR GROUND TURKEY CAN BE USED IF YOU ARE CONCERNED ABOUT THE FAT CONTENT. I ALSO THINK THERE MAY BE AN ERROR IN THE COMPUTATION OF THE NUTRITIONAL DATA. i usually feed my toddler strictly fish and veggies but wanted to add a bit of meat to her diet for once and a while. small meatballs with just enough sweet taste for a toddler and just the right size for those that are too independent to be fed and get frustrated with forks and spoons. you can also add a dipping sauce on the side. i use all organic ingredients for these and i never really measure so use your best judgement; i am just a beginner cook and i am sure you can improve these vastly!!!!! i also froze them and they were just as good when i cooked them up.

OK, so I made these for the benefit of my toddler but DH and I were equally as pleased with them :). Right now DS won't touch zucchini or carrots, so these were the result of some mama sneak-age. I am posting them as I made them, but next time I am likely to decrease the sugar just a touch. I used a variety of flours as I like to mix it up, but I'm sure just ww or white would be fine, too. Enjoy!
