This week, Munchkin Meals is focusing on breakfast. In a perfect world, Logan (8 months) would eat everything on my plate. In the real world, he gets his own meals and is somewhat less interested in them. He eats – which I’m thankful for! I’ve heard of some babies that have NO interest in solids – but after a few bites of everything he tends to get disinterested. In an effort to counter this, I try to make his plate colorful and flavorful. I usually offer a vegetable, a fruit and a carb for breakfast. Dinner focuses more on proteins, though sometimes we have yogurt for breakfast (mostly when I’ve found a food he absolutely doesn’t want to eat… yogurt always works).
In this picture, Logan is having ww bread with philadelphia, tomatoes, cucumbers and grapes. He’s also holding a book, because having toys to play with keeps him interested in his food for longer. Funny how that goes.
He’s surprisingly fond of tomatoes, I think it must be the color. Next grocery haul, I’ll grab some peppers and perhaps some other more colorful stuff.
In this one, we – again – have toast with philadelphia, cheerios and microwaved apples with cinnamon. This was after a disastrous experience with peas and I was at the point where I kind of just wanted him to eat something; I’d given up on vegetables for that day.
Waffles, eggs, broccoli, mangoes, nectarines, peaches, plums, yogurt and cream of wheat are some other breakfast favorites at our place!
