we just took my daughter to see a nutritionist due to weight gain, she suggested alot of ways to add extra calories to foods but it made me wonder what do most people feed their toddlers? so i was just curious what is a typical breakfast and lunch for your toddler? do they want to eat the same thing everyday?

My daughter used to enjoy eggs but now she does not want them, she wants to eat only indian home made wheat bread(roti), without veggies maybe a little lentil or pulses, she does not enjoy any fruit in any form ,i am trying to wean her off the bottle , she has become so cranky.She likes noodles can give them often as they are made with chinense sauces and they are high in sodium.

My daughter really likes to eat oatmeal. We have the real oats that you buy in a canister and cook/sweeten yourself. She also likes to eat eggs, pancakes, or other people's cereal for breakfast.
For lunch, she usually has a peanut butter sandwich, and some of whatever I'm having.
She always eat's whatever we're eating for dinner, be it spaghetti, taco soup, fettucini alfredo, whatever.
My daughter is an eating machine and will eat whatever you don't hide in a locked box, inside a safe, shoved behind all the pots and pans in the safety locked cupboard. And I'm not even sure that that's safe :)

Typical breakfast is either toast with butter or peanut butter and some sort of fruit and juice or else cereal with fruit. She usually want to eat only toast and fruit every morning though. Lunch varies every day - soup with crackers and cheese, pasta, sandwiches, pancakes with fruit.

My son is large for his age, but he will usually have strawberry milk (anything to get him to drink the milk) and then either pancakes or french toast or (his favorite) cereal. Who woulda thunk it? the kid loves raisin bran.



He'll get some more milk before his nap, just plain but warm (still trying to get that bottle out of his mouth, my MIL watches him and SHE won't give it up) then for lunch he'll have either pasta with sauce or butter, maybe a hot dog with veggies or a PB&J. I discovered today that he likes my tuna salad.



He'll get a pudding for dessert and he likes to munch on cheese all day, like the cheese sticks. For dinner he'll usually eat whatever we're eating or we'll switch up what he ate for lunch and dinner. Sometimes for lunch the next day, he'll eat leftovers. Luckily he's not picky, but his diet does revolve around a lot of pasta, veggies, bread. He is not a fan of meat, but he does like hot dogs and sometimes nuggets. My MIL will make him greek dishes like rice pilaf and a few other things that he likes. He likes anything with a lot of flavor.

My son is a runt so I'm always trying to get him to eat. In the morning he has oatmeal and fruit milk or juice. During the day he has more fruit, cheese and crackers then whatever he wants to drink. Lunch is plain tuna, pb&j, chicken, pasta, potatoes, veggies not all of this though at the same time.lol Its kind of trial and error. My son loves fish even packaged salmon. He will eat most any fruit and he likes broccoli, carrots asparagus ect. He is still picky because sometimes he only wants cinnamon oatmeal and cheese all day. Little ones like routine so when introducing new things you have to ease it in. Good luck hun.
