    I know this is a lot to ask, but can you write your toddlers dinners for a week?

    Caitlyn eats what I eat most nights, but I'm quite unhealthy :blush: Worried she's eating too much rubbish.

    I cook a meal for all of us everynight...so that's what Hayden eats. Things like spaghetti, or other types of pasta, chicken and rice, meatloaf, roast, really anything. I try and make sure there is a meat, starch and atleast one veggie for dinner. I have got some great ideas off www.weelicious.com for lunches for them though...I have used it a few times for dinner stuff when I'm not hungry, and some of the things I've made for the whole family they are really yummy. It's all healthy stuff but really good and most is very easy to do

    hmm week to week

    Usually 1-2 nights of pasta (with different types of sauces, I make these before and freeze them, they have loads of veggies)

    1 night raviolis, either ham and cheese, or spinach and cheese

    1-2 nights chicken/fish plus potatoes and veggie

    1 night scrambled or boiled egg with cheese, veggie side

    It really depends. Like MO3 I try to have at a meat, veg, and starch for her dinners and I'm also trying to let her have more of our foods now

    2 nights summer will have pasta with tomato sauce, with extra veg in and most most of the times either salmon or chicken. this is her fave.

    then a couple of nights she will have meat/fish with potato and veg

    then a couple of nights she will have things like fishfingers mash and peas or vegetable fingers with beans and extra veg.

    i just try to make sure she has her 5 portions of fruit and veg, some fish or meat and some sort of potato or pasta.

    and as for lunches its usually a sandwich of some sort xx

    I tend to slow cook a lot, so they have whatever i slow cook. That can be lasagne, chili, spag bol, stews, casseroles, soups...they love the turkey apple and sultana slow cooked meatballs i do and peking pork chops. I then serve a veg on the side.
