I am a pick your battles kind of mom, and even with that, I do want us both to enjoy meal time. I don't want to spend these moments hovering over him and coaxing him to take a bite. Mealtime, should be delicious, nutritious, and dare I say... relaxing? So much of that has to do with offering my children foods they find fun as well. If you haven't tried Mighty Mealtime by Plum Organics, they're yummy USDA Organic and non- GMO meals in small packages. Oak, has been eating Plum's pouches for some time, so I was interested to see how he fared with actual toddler meals from them as well. Turns out, they're a hit!
A few ways I insert healthy foods into his daily diet:
+ Oatmeal with greek yogurt and mashed fruit
+ Smoothies with handfuls of kale and spinach, but stay red with so many strawberries-A tiny bit of tomato sauce over sautéed kale
+Mashed or finely chopped vegetables in his macaroni and cheese
His favorite Mighty Mealtime as of now is Macaroni and Cheese. It's cheesy, and filling, and yellow. Basically, it's perfect for him! Here's how I make it more balanced for him.
+ Microwave Safe Bowl
+ Mac & Cheese Mighty Meal by Plum Organics
+ Handful of vegetables of your choice
