hi my 16 months old loves pasta. pasta with tuna, pasta with mackerel, pasta with cheese sauce (1oz butter melt in pan, tablespoon of plain flour, 250ml full fat milk, simmer for 5 mins then take off heat and melt in as much cheese as u like just keep tasting it).
i also cook a 300g pack of stewing beef with 1 oxo cube and use birds eye micro veg. voila, piece of cake (im the same cant cook to save my life!!)

She'll eat cereal wih cut up bananas, hot dogs (turkey), any kind of pasta (she really loves pasta roni), cream cheese on graham crackers is a great lunch with some apple sauce, grilled cheese with ham on it, turkey sandwiches, peas and carrots, chicken nuggets. Just hink little kid food and stugg you liked as a kids

Pasta is GREAT! Steam up a heap of vegies (carrot, peas, corn, zucchini, broccoli, cabbage.. any steamable vegie). Throw steamed vegies & some milk or cream into the blender. Add enough milk to blend to a sauce consistency. Mix sauce through cooked pasta & top with cheese (you can add meats in there too. Chicken is a fave here.)

Hiya, my daughter Skylah can sometimes be a fussy eater. I found a recipe (well my mum did) for these vege-noodle cups. They are very easy to make. If you would like the recipe let me know. Might be a bit too much to type in here.
Otherwise I found cooking some pasta shells mixed in with some mince is nice and easy. Get all the iron goodness from the mince.

my boys love sweet potato fries tossed with olive oil and course salt then baked. (and so do I) They are also really really fond of fish sticks. Make your own fish sticks and chicken sticks with real cod/boneless chicken breasts cut into strips and lightly flour(mix in parmesan cheese for yummy value) This makes them more healthy than store bought which is mostly breading. I slice up a whole bag of chicken breasts and cook then I bag up extra. My hubby and I love them for lunches as well.
Omelettes. Sauteed sticks of vegetable she can pick up herself. My daughter was fussy on and off - she'd love something new for a week then ditch it, so just keep offering new things, whatever you're eating.
If all else fails, cut the crusts off a slice of bread, put her favourite spread on and roll it up - we call them "rollees".

egg's or waffles with butter, it could be a finger food or u could cut it up. My daughter is very advanced and has been walking since 9 months talking since 2, and has not let me feed her since she was 10 months, shes already saying sentances like "no i dont want it" LOL or here kitty kitty, or i love you. she is so smart! i try and make simple meals since usually when shes done she'll just throw it to our dog anyways, she loves strawberries with a tad of suger on them cut up, or a hot dog sliced up into 4 slices so she doesnt choke on it or even just plain cereal, all of those are finger foods and she loves to use her hands!!

I know this sounds crazy but my daughter loves it (as well as the rest of us). She can pick it up easily with her fork. If your little one eats beans give it a try.
1 lb of ground beef
½ c. chopped green pepper
½ c. chopped onion
2/3 c. water
1 envelope taco seasoning
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 can Mexican Diced tomatoes, undrained or rotel (mild)
6 flour tortillas (8 inch)
1 can (16 ounces) refried beans
3 c. shredded Mexican cheese blend
In a large skillet, cook the beef, green pepper, onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Add water and taco seasoning; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 2 minutes. Stir in black beans and tomatoes. Simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes.
Place two tortillas in a greased 13 in x 9 in x 2 baking dish. Spread with half of the refried beans and beef mixture; sprinkle with 1 c. cheese. Repeat layers. Top with reaining tortialls and cheese. Cover and bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes until heated through and cheese is melted.

heres a couple that are a hit at our house;
pancakes. we add apple sauce in place of some of the oil and sugar in the recipie. They are a little sweeter that way.
roll-ups. Tortilla spread with cream cheese (flavoured is good) rolled up and cut thin . lunch meat spread with cream cheese or avacado rolled up and cut thin. You can grate in some veggies or cheddar or hide a green bean in the middle.

My little boy loves pasta! I take whole wheat pasta; the alternative to egg noodles. Boil in chicken broth and grate a carrot and some celery in while boiling. When the pasta is almost done you can thicken the broth with flour, (mixed with a little water.)
He just loves it and its good for my nine year old as well. I suppose if you are feeling ambitious you could add some cooked chicken!

I poach meat in water, with some vegetables. I'll take out the meat when it's cooked, and leave the veg until it's boiled. I take out the veg and meat then blitz the whole lot to a coarse mix. I'll use the leftover water to make a gravy and serve it with mashed potato and other vegetables.
Cook up some of that Kraft or Velveeta Macaroni and Cheese according to package directions. Once it's done, take some canned tuna (chunk white seems to please my little guy), toss it in. Delicious (I like to eat it myself, as well) with peas on the side.

cook the exact same way you would pancakes on the stove.
Serve warm with tomato sauce on the side. mine love it.

Jack loves any form of Italian. Grab some frozen tortallini and boil it until it floats and coat with a nice jarred pasta. He also loves peanut butter sandwiches. He loves scrambled eggs. I did get a cute idea to make omlettes in a bag. If you do a quick google search, you can get the amazingly simple idea. We also love to throw in some Hebrew national hotdogs in with our mac n cheese. Jack likes tuna fish. Good luck!
