I was just wondering if you experienced moms could give me some advice. My little one is really really tiny for a 15 mo old, and I seem to be second guessing my food choices for her lately. I eat really healthy, not because I am dieting (counting calories & fat), but just because that is what I prefer. I usually just give her things that I eat. I'm not sure if it's my cooking or my food choices, but she isn't all that interested in what I am feeding her. A typical day is: smoothie (with coconut & flax oil, protein powder, chia seeds & fruit), spinach rice pasta & vegetable pasta sauce, grilled chicken or fish, sweet potato or a vegetable (that she doesnt eat). And snacks of puffs or dry cereal, crackers, fruit strips, fruit, or hummus throughout the day. She refuses to eat eggs or avocados and she is allergic to milk & goats milk.
I read online about moms feeding their kids chicken nuggets & french fries & graham crackers. We don't eat this stuff ourselves, so I haven't let her have any. I should also mention we eat about 90% organic and hardly ever eat out. She is also more of a grazer, than a kid who will sit down for 3 meals a day.
I'm a novice cook who doesn't even know how to season rice to make it taste good :) And I am thinking that maybe the food I cook for DD would be more appealing with some simple seasonings, sauces, or dressings to add more flavor. Rather than the plain roasted, grilled or baked stuff I usually make. Salt, pepper & olive oil is about all I use because I like the flavor of the vegetables.
So I guess my question is: What do you guys feed your kids. And do you have any simple recipes you could share?
