Tuesday's Toddler Tidbits #2

(See here for an explanation of Tuesday's Toddler Tidbits)

We spent the second half of the week out of town vising my parents, but things were pretty similar to normal I suppose. Serving sizes, where applicable, in parentheses. Remember, these are my offerings to the little toddler tummies...when food offered is not consumed and I know they've eaten it in the past, I assume the tummies are still full from the last offering. Here's the lineup:

Sunday:
  • Breakfast: 1 hard-boiled egg per toddler, 1/3 sliced large banana, 1/4 cup cheese cubes, dry Life cereal, milk
  • Lunch: (animal crackers in car on way home from church) chopped broccoli (1/4 cup each), chili dog pie (1/3 cup each), sliced grapes (1/4 cup each), milk
  • Dinner: 2 large pb&j sandwiches split 3 ways, pumpkin yogurt with applesauce (~1/3 cup per toddler), 2 large Ryvita fruit crisp crackers split 3 ways, milk
Monday:
  • Breakfast: scrambled eggs (4 eggs for 3 toddlers), 1 large banana split 3 ways, cereal medley, milk
  • Lunch: fruit salad, Goldfish crackers, cheese cubes, ham lunch meat, water to drink
  • Afternoon Snack: none; water in their sippy cups
  • Dinner: milk, chopped cooked broccoli (finally done with those leftovers!), rice, Creamy Peanut Chicken--my toddlers INHALED this, so I'll definitely be posting the recipe. It's also a freezer meal--bonus!
Tuesday:
  • Breakfast: cottage cheese pancakes (1/3 recipe each!), 1 can mandarin oranges in juice split 3 ways; milk
  • Lunch: peas and carrots, cheese pita (no one ate much--still full from breakfast no doubt), milk to drink

I have to say "I love you" and your kids eat way more than Ethan! I guess that's why he is a little string bean kiddo. Maybe the sibling competition has something to do with it!
