12 Quick Meals My Toddler Loves
As a mom of five, dinner can be time consuming. It’s a process in our home! My husband is a great cook, so I am lucky to say — he makes all the meals. I’m better at cleaning up, so that is my job after dinner. When it’s time to eat, he makes the plates and I pass them out. At dinnertime we feel like drill sergeants, so planning meals makes things much easier for all. Especially when you have a baby! I like being able to choose meals that are Grayson-approved but still adult-friendly. Even though Grayson has only 3 teeth at 15 months-old — he eats everything we do, which makes dinnertime a breeze. However, it’s even easier when you can prepare quick and easy meals for all — toddler approved! If you’re looking to add some favorite dishes to your meal planning, you’re going to want to pin these right now!
Check out my favorite go to meals for busy parents with a toddler!
Family Friendly Easy Meals
Take a look through 12 easy meals your entire family will love!
White Cheddar Mac + Cheese
Grayson is a lover of peas. However, if your little one isn’t a fan of his veggies — this is a perfect dish to hide them. Bow-tie pasta is easy to pick-up and it makes a kid-friendly casserole dish!
Meatball Alphabet Soup
Meatballs are one of Grayson’s favorite foods so add in some cute little ABC’s and spaghetti sauce and you’ve got yourself a delicious meal in under 30 minutes.
Chicken Pot Pie Cupcakes
An All-American favorite these cupcakes otherwise known as Chicken Pot Pies are a meal your toddler is sure to love. In just 30 minutes you’ll have a comfort food for dinner.
Mini Deep Dish Pizzas
Perfect for those little hands — these family approved pizzas are perfect for those fun Friday nights when you don’t want to whip up a four course meal.
Believe it or not — Grayson loves chili! As long as it’s not on the spicy side, it’s a great friendly baby or toddler meal. Have it simmer all day in the crockpot so it’s ready to go when it’s dinner time.
Crock Pot Turkey Meatballs
On the run? Throw in some meatballs before the morning rush and dinner will cook away on it’s own. Toddlers love meatballs and so does the whole family.
Cut them up and prepare for the mess! But — it’s worth it. Stuffed Shells are a great meal you can prepare in advance and freeze until they are ready for dinner.
Butternut Squash, Carrot Ginger Soup
Think orange! With so many health benefits, you can make enough soup to last you for lunch and dinner for the week. Soup is an easy meal to prepare ahead of time which is always a plus for busy parents.
Broccoli Cheese Patties
From your tot to your husband — everyone loves these oh-so-simple patties filled with cheese, chunks of broccoli and breadcrumbs. Make extra! The best part is you can freeze the leftover patties for another meal.
