What Levi Eats In A Day.

So I’ve always loved reading about what other kids eat in a day because I’m always looking for ideas and thought I’d share the meals I fed Levi in the past two days. Please no judgement, as I’d never judge any other mama. If you have any ideas or blogs you’d like to point me to for easy recipes, send them my way!

Friday:

Breakfast Fed 30 minutes or so after waking up

  • Kodiak Pancake with a little bit of butter on top (I feel like it keeps the pancake from drying out and becoming hard)
  • 1/2 a Banana, chopped into small pieces

Snack I like to feed him his snack a little before his first nap around 9:30/10AM

  • Baby yogurt
  • Fruit (Banana and Raspberries)

Lunch Fed after waking up from his nap, give or take 30 minutes

  • Leftover Spanish rice from the night before
  • Grilled Cheese (1 piece of whole wheat bread and 1 slice of Colby jack cheese)
  • Applesauce (I just buy whatever brand and get it unsweetened)
  • A little bit of shredded cheese (this was while he waited for his grilled cheese)

Snack I like to feed him a snack around 2:30/3PM

  • Raspberries
  • Cheerios that have been soaking in milk to soften them up a bit

Dinner 

  • Chicken, shredded (on this particular day Jesse grilled chicken on the barbeque)
  • Potatoes (recipe HERE)
  • A little bit of avocado

Saturday:

Breakfast

  • Homemade pancakes this morning, again topped with butter
  • Banana
  • Sausage (Levi is a meat lover and sausage is perfect for protein and easy to crumble! I always take the meat out of the casing before cooking.)

Snack

  • Avocado on a toasted whole wheat bread
  • Baby yogurt

Lunch

  • Raspberries
  • Leftover chicken from the dinner before
  • A little bit of Mac N Cheese

Snack

  • Squeeze pouch of puree (these are awesome when you’re on the go or want to add a variety of fruits/veggies to your kids’ diet)
  • 1/2 of a Graham Cracker

Dinner

  • Leftover Mac N Cheese from lunch
  • Strawberries

 

I’d like to add that I offer water to him all day long and at every meal because I never want him to become dehydrated! Since he isn’t the biggest fan of milk in a sippy cup, I no longer offer it to him because I’m not really a big milk drinker in the first place and Jesse drinks 2% milk so that’s what we have in the house (not the recommended whole milk).

I also try to include a protein at every meal but sometimes it doesn’t work out the way I would like. Not every day is perfect and even though I’m a stay at home mom, I don’t always have everything on hand. Also, what really sucks is when you buy two containers of raspberries at the store and they look great but then you come to find they are all moldy! Yeah, FML because he loves raspberries. I tried to pick out the ones without any on them but unfortunately we wasted our money there. Ugh, bums me out. Also, you’ll notice he eats more fruits than veggies and I am working on it! I just realized that while I feel like I’m always eating vegetables, I don’t always serve them to him because they’re raw and obviously not safe for him to eat. This is where those squeeze pouches of purees come in handy…

Any comments are appreciated on this post! I’m always trying to find new foods to feed him or new ways of feeding things to him. I do a lot of cooking throughout the week so he eats a lot of leftovers! For the days I don’t have much, Mac N Cheese is always a plus!
