I am running out of ideas. He loves to eat. I need <b>inexpensive, easy to prepare</b> ideas.....<br>
Right now, he eats a lot of omlettes, pb&j sandwiches, rice and beans, pasta w tomato sauce, fruit, steamed carrots, zucchinis, broccoli, etc.<br><br>
Please share your ideas!<br>
TIA

Are you making separate meals? I would probably just feed him what you're eating - just cut up/mash as appropriate.

When we do make meals, he has what we have. Unfortunately, though, that's a rare occurrence.<br>
We have funky schedules, so sometimes we don't eat till late at night, or we eat at work...and i know it's unhealthy, but all i do for breakfast is coffee, so i need food for him.....<br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

My son's favorites right now:<br>
cheese cubes<br>
yogurt with or without berries<br>
quick sweetened bread (like banana or pumpkin) if you make it yourself, you can make it healthy<br>
meatloaf/meatballs made from ground chicken or beef<br>
oatmeal<br>
pizza - can do this homemade too<br>
peas<br><br>
hope some of these spark an idea or 2 . . .

Does he like hummus? It's cheap to make, and good to have on hand for a quick snack/meal.

Mine both liked porridge for breakfast (they still do). We varied it by adding different fruit purees. Actually they were the one thing I made ahead and froze in ice cube trays. We would pop a couple of cubes out and add to the hot porridge, once they were stirred in the porridge was cool enough to eat.<br><br>
Soup or stew where I could heat up a small amount for them was good.<br><br>
Cheese on toast, Bean spread on toast. DD was big on eggs, in any form so keeping a couple of hard boiled ones ready to chop up was nice and easy.<br><br><br>
About 18months we got into a bit more of a routine with both eating and naps. Then I was able to plan mealtimes more so that they just ate what we were having when we were having it.
