Favorite Feeding Supplies

Having the right toddler meal time supplies can make the world of difference in getting your toddler to sit at the table longer and eat better! Here are some of our favorites that my boys use almost every day:

EZPZ Happy Bowl – The perfect size for toddlers! Its a placemat and suction bowl in one so your table and your toddler stay a little cleaner. We love EZPZ because they are made from non-toxic silicone and they are dishwasher safe (mom win!) Take 25% Off Orders $75+ at EZPZ with Code EZPZ25L

Constructive Eating Construction Utensils – my toddlers get so excited when they see these on the table! Great for picky eating or just days when your toddler distracted and needs a little help getting excited about meal time.

Silicone Bibs – these are our favorite because they are a thick, sturdy, yet soft material. We have tried a few different brands but these from Happy Healthy Parent are our favorite! A must from baby-hood through toddlerhood.

2 Year Old Lunch Ideas

Toddler Lunch #1: PB&J Roll Up

PB&J Roll Up: cut off the crust off of a piece of bread, spread a thin layer of peanut butter (or other nut butter) on one half, and a thin layer of jelly on the other. Roll up tightly and serve with a cute food pick if it won’t stay together on its own. Side of cooked carrots with ranch, cheese, and quartered grapes.

I always cut our grapes with the OXO Grape cutter and its a game-changer!

2 Year Old Lunch #2: Spinach Pizza Dippers

Pizza Dippers: Lay out a tortilla and top with cheese, spinach, and dried basil. Cook on a cast iron pan (or broil in the over) until the bottom is crispy and the cheese is melted. Serve with sides of marinara for dipping and your toddler’s favorite pizza toppings (like pineapple, pepperoni, olives, and tomato)

Toddler Lunch #4: PB Graham Cracker Sandwiches

2 Year Old Meal Idea #5: Bagel w/ Cream Cheese

Bagel w/ Cream Cheese: we love Dave’s Killer Bread bagels and I found out that my toddler’s do too!
