Paleo Toddler Meal – and Strategy!

1 Comment

I definitely can’t claim to have a 100% perfectly paleo toddler.  If you’ve tried to feed one of these creatures you know the challenges.  For example, a melt-down in the grocery store there other day ended up with me frantically opening a box of fruit snacks and feeding them to him.  Do I get points for the fact that they were organic?  Let’s not even talk about holidays.

I do try my best, and would like to share ideas for anyone that’s trying to go paleo with a toddler.  Here’s lunch from today – what he ate of what I gave him :)

  • 2 oz left-over chicken breast, cubed, with about 1T almond butter spread on the pieces
  • 2 cherry tomatoes
  • 2 halved, roasted brussels sprouts
  • 1 slice dill pickle
  • 2 small tangerines
  • water

I’ve also started a new strategy with feedings.  I was feeding him little bites of food until he was full.  This would usually go some thing like him rejecting the healthy paleo food I cooked, and me compromising and giving him something paleo-ish like deli meat.  And fruit.  So much fruit.  Now I get his whole meal prepared on his tray, just what we’re eating.  I give him his whole meal and nothing else.  He’s been eating way more variety this way.
