11 June - New Favorite Foods...
Hi there. It's Sumari from EasyHealthyKids.com, and this week: New Favorite Foods...
The family: Fred is a headstrong 2 year, 7 month old toddler boy, and Sarah is my sweet 6 month old baby girl.
This week, Fred found his new favorite toddler meal and Sarah tried fruit from a mesh feeder. I also found a great activity that got them playing together.
Fred's favorite food of the week - My father in law gave me a pack of cut prawns, and I found this new Prawn Fried Rice recipe that I decided try.
My toddler son enjoyed it a lot, although I wouldn't say it's for young babies. The pieces were a bit too small for Sarah to eat.
I'd say this recipe is for babies 9 months old and over, especially toddlers.
Sarah's favorite food of the week - Sarah loves eating out of her fresh foods feeder (it's a mesh bag where you can put fresh fruit and veg in). She especially enjoyed eating kiwi fruit through the mesh.
It's a handy little device, because she is also learning to hold the handle of the feeder.
Fred's morning tea box of the week - I love to pack 1 serving of fruit, 2 servings of veg, something sweet and something savoury. Fred loved his morning tea box and went back to it a few times.
It contained grapes, carrot sticks, celery sticks, paleo ginger snap cookies, and brown rice crackers and cheese.
Fred and Sarah's activity of the week - I love to do activities that involves both children at the same time. I got the idea to play with a balloon, and hitting it with a fly swatter, from this great post: 15 No Prep Activities For Toddlers.
Fred and Sarah enjoyed playing with the balloon and fly swatter. Sarah giggled as the balloon went up in the air. We played a few times with the balloon and fly swatter until the balloon finally burst.
Remember, balloon are choking hazards, so watch them!
Joke of the week - This week, 45 Funny Questions You Can Ask Your Kids. I love talking with my toddler son and these questions will open up a dialogue.
Me: What do I do for a job?
