|Feeding an opinionated toddler can be difficult. Add to that challenge food allergies, and it can be a recipe for disaster. Because I know many moms out there struggle with this (this being the whole picky toddler thing), I thought I would share some of Isla June's meals. They are mostly lunches and a little bit of breakfast, and it's all gluten, soy and milk free. So, yes, it is possible to feed a toddler who has allergies (because I didn't think so!)|
And I must note, I am no cook. This is me, doing the best that I can.
|Gluten Free Whole Meat chicken nugges with mustard dip and kiwis|
|Guacamole= Avocado+Organic Salsa and tangerines|
|Turkey Spaghetti and veggies with Brown Rice tortillas (that I make into chips) and tangerines (she's really into tangerines!)|
|Chicken chilli with organic corn chips and hummus|
|Gluten Free Honey Blueberry Pancakes (homemade) with almond butter and Organic applesauce|
|Hummus and brown rice tortilla, organic chicken sausage and tangerines|
|homemade guacamole with hummus and organic apples|
I try to focus most of her meals on a fruit and/or veggie with a protein. Because she doesn't eat a whole lot of carbs (gluten allergy, remember), she gets most of her "filling up the belly" from protein, so there is always a meat (chick or turkey or fish only) or I use almond/peanut butter or hummus as a protein.
