Need some new ideas for 14 month old's lunch. The usual would be cut up cooked carrots, bananna, grilled cheese. Thanks!
My kids are 15 months (GGB)
Scrambled eggs is a fave. We alway add cheese, and mix in different vegetables depending what we have , mushrooms, tomatoes, peas, etc...
Macaroni is also great - mixed with a packet of frozen winter squash (which acts like a sauce) and shredded cheese (add a little milk if too thick) . Done in under 10 minutes and a great serving of veg.
Mine also love warmed pita/flat bread with different cut up fruit and cottage cheese with pineapple. We also puree left over veggies for dips with this (sweet peas are delicious, as are carrots and mashed avocado)
We've also just started to introduce soups (all vegetable, pureed and thick) and let the kids add their own toppings which they seem to enjoy (Goldfish, shredded cheese, shredded apple/pear, chopped ham - sometime all of it at once)

I have the book Super Baby Food- it guides you through making your own baby food for the first year. There are a bunch of great toddler recipes. Perfect for kids who are mostly eating everything you are but could use a couple of things of their own still. Lots of veggie recipes that my boys love. Nothing complicated to make. I make a batch and freeze it and warm as needed.

Mine also love sweet potato fries. We often do meatballs (frozen) quartered up and cheese cubes. Sweet English peas have been a favorite too. Around this age I started adding apple sticks...gala apples are the softest and mine had no problem eating them. Another thing mine love are sausage balls (made with mild sausage).
