10 Easy Toddler Meals for Busy Mommies

January 21, 2015 3 min read 1 Comment

Toddlers can be so picky... One day they love a certain food and then the next day, they hate it! We started baby-led weaning my son when he was six months old. Because of this method, he eats like a champ and we have far gone left the puree meals behind. Here are a few things that are certain about toddlers and their meals:
  • They love a variety of colors.
  • They love simple things, mostly.
  • They love familiar foods. It is ok to repeat. (You don't have to be a Martha Stewart here)
  • They love what they can grab quickly.
  • They love a variety of textures.
  • They love a variety of tastes.
I wanted to share with you ten of my son's favorite meals. He is not picky, but there are foods that he absolutely loves to eat very often. I try to give him a bit of protein, dairy, carb, and either a fruit or veggie at each meal. His top foods?
  • avocado
  • string cheese (cheese in general, really)
  • egg
  • cheese
  • carrots
  • green beans
  • chicken
  • zucchini
  • baked sweet potato fries
For my son's meats, I always bake them. I never ever fry foods for myself, so why would I ever dare give my son fried foods! For his veggies, I love steaming, baking, or roasting them. I cook them long enough for them to get soft or tender, but not too long or the nutritional value decreases. For his fruits, I try to aim for fresh fruits. Except, this week, when I sent my husband out to get items for this blog post, my husband got packaged peached instead of fresh peaches. Oh well. My son still devoured them. I just rather not do the packaged due to all of the high fructose corn syrup! My son drinks breastmilk, water, and one specific brand of Organic Apple Juice and Organic Grape Juice from a brand called R.W. Knudsen. It is NEVER too early to encourage good nutrition!! Meal #1: String Cheese Couscous (he loves the texture!) Baked Turkey Breast FullSizeRender Meal #2: Green Beans Sweet Potato Fries Baked Chicken Breast IMG_3672

Meal #8: Oatmeal Banana Waffles Peaches Black Forest Ham Homemade oatmeal banana waffles recipe:
  • 1/2 banana
  • 3/4 cup oats
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  1. Mix ingredients together by hand while your waffle iron is heating. Then waffle them up! YUMMY!

Meal #10: Avocado Oranges Baked Chicken Breast (boy loves his chicken like mommy!)

These are just ten of the meals my son loves to eat! He loves other foods, too, that are not mentioned, but as you can see, there are some repeats and, quite frankly, repeats work when you are a busy mommy. Don't complain, be thankful for this!!! If you child loves some chicken like mine does, I suggest buying a rotisserie chicken from the local grocery store for $6 and making his meals (and yours) off of that for 3-4 days. Easy, cheap, and hassle-free. A lot of the time, my son eats what my husband and I eat. Most of the meals pictured here are lunches with some breakfast meals added in. Bottom line: Have fun! Experiment! Get creative. I post different meals as my son's taste buds develop :) Click the image below to follow along also for free diet and workout plans. URLSmall

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

Clothing

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
