Tuesday's Toddler Tidbits

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

We had company in town for a good bit of this week's eating, so we ate out more than is usual. The toddlers (in triplicate) were also all recovering from a bad cold and didn't have much appetite. I suppose this is not a very glowing nutritional week with which to begin. Oh well! 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: can't remember
  • Lunch: can't remember
  • Dinner: Mexican pizza (homemade; 1 small piece per toddler), strawberries, milk
Monday:
  • Breakfast: hard-boiled egg (1/toddler), strawberries and bananas, blueberry muffins (1/toddler), milk
  • Lunch: grilled cheese (2/3 sandwich per toddler), cantaloupe chunks
  • Afternoon Snack: Animal crackers (4 per toddler), water with small amount of juice

Thanks for these! They really help me stretch my brain around what I should be offering my little one. The last posts on each of my blogs are food related!
