5 Quick and Easy Recipes for Your Little Munchkin
It’s challenging to come up with healthy toddler meal ideas after a long day! Whether you work, stay at home, or do a combination of the two. The young ones require our attention throughout the day, mainly because they need to be adequately fed! The below-mentioned meal ideas are simple, quick, and nutritious, allowing you to have food on the table in no time. So, let’s get equipped with these healthy meals one by one:
1. Cheesy Veggie Toast
- Shredded cheese
- Thawed veggies
Top toast with shredded cheese, thawed frozen peas, broccoli florets, cauliflower florets, or corn (you can opt for all the available veggies) and microwave for ten seconds to melt. You could also serve the veggies alongside a cheesy toast too!
2. Apple Pancakes
- Self-rising flour
- Melted butter
- Condensed milk
- Castor sugar
- 2½ tbsp of water
In a large mixing bowl, combine the apple, honey, self-rising flour, melted butter, condensed milk, castor sugar, and 2½ tbsp water. Mix thoroughly to form a smooth mixture with no lumps. Add the fruit salt and 1 tbsp of water to the mixture. Mix carefully; once the bubbles have developed, grease a non-stick small uttapam pan using a little butter. Pour about 1½ tbsp batter into each uttapam mould and lightly smooth it out. Cook, in a small amount of butter, until crisp and golden brown on both sides. Serve with honey sprinkled over top.
3. Cucumber Hummus Wrap
- Thinly sliced cucumber
Spread hummus and cucumber on tortilla and roll up or fold. Slice in half to serve. (Flour or multigrain tortillas tend to be softer than corn, which can be helpful for younger eaters.) You can also serve this deconstructed for younger eaters.
4. Cheese Crackers
- Whole-grain crackers
- Sliced cheese
- Assortment of sliced veggies and fruit beans
Assemble a toddler-friendly snack plate that’s a simple assortment of the food groups and serve.
5. Cereal and Fruit
It took me time to get up to the idea of having cereal for supper, but we now do it daily, and my baby adores it! It’s also convenient for me because it’s so simple.
Enjoy these simple recipes and share a fun meal time with your kids!
