Just trying to get some new ideas on what to feed my son. hes a few weeks shy of 20 months and eats pretty good. but i feel bad feeding him the same things over and over again. So i would like to know what you make for food. Lunch and dinner would be best thanks

My son (22 mos) loves grilled cheese for lunch. I cut them into little sticks so he can eat them easily. He also loves pasta- we buy pesto, alfredo and tomato sauces from trader joe's, add a meat and a veggie to the noodles and sauce and he digs in. I cook up like a pound of ground turkey or beef, then freeze it in small portions. I also buy frozen mixed veggies so I can cook just a little at a time. Mashed sweet potatoes are another favorite. I'm trying to just feed him whatever we're eating, except for spicy dishes.

my boy loves pasta! he also loves salad! i do a bunch of different kids of salad eg: freash spinach leaves 1 hard boiled egg and a creamy dressing! i also scrub some potatoes cut into 4's then cut into small cubes mix some oil, salt peper and garlic toss the place on a cookie sheet and back for about 400 for 35min turning half way! also take a yam or sweet potatoes scub then cut the whole yam in ti 1.5 inch slice's andplace in a lightly greased dish drizzle with some oil (i use EVO) sprinkle a little brown sugar and bake for 30 min at 400!

we incorporate fruit into most of our sons lunches (hes 18 months). maybe some cottage cheese (we use these as snacks and part of the meal if need be). FRUIT, whole wheat toast with a little cream cheese? i dunno, we're struggling a little the older he gets.. he use to eat everything. now he loves meat, bread and fruit

When my kids were that age they loved scrambled eggs, homemade french toast sticks, cottage cheese, grilled chicken cubes or sticks, grilled cheese, steamed carrots, tuna casserole was always good.
