4 September - Toddler Tacos...
Hi there. It's Sumari from EasyHealthyKids.com, with this week's easy-to-make, family-friendly snacks, food and activities.
The family: Fred is a headstrong 2 year, 11 month old toddler boy, and Sarah is my sweet 9 month old baby girl.
This week Fred and Sarah enjoyed baby and toddler tacos and chocolate muffins.
Fred's favorite food of the week
Fred tasted chicken mince tacos for the first time this week. I modified the tacos to be family friendly, so that both my kids could eat them.
Sarah had only the mince and veg and the rest of us had tacos and mince. It was inspired by this Veggie Taco Recipe, I just added chicken mince so that Sarah can get some iron in.
Sarah's favorite food of the week
Sarah has no teeth yet (at almost 9 months old!) so she enjoys soft foods, including coconut flour muffins. These Chocolate Chia Seed Muffins are based on a paleo recipe I love to make, I just made them chocolatey for the kids.
They are soft for the whole family to eat and reminds me of chocolate cake. I use Stevia to cut down on the sugar contents.
Fred's activity of the week
Fred and I was browsing the Internet for toddler activities when we saw an activity where you make fossils out of plastic bug toys. We didn't have bug toys so we used what we had - lots of toy cars.
Our improvised Playdough and Toy Cars activity was a great hit with him. Fred enjoyed driving his cars through the playdough, and making different types of tracks.
Sarah's activity of the week
We did grocery shopping yesterday, and I forgot one of the boxes with some toiletries in the living room. The box excited and intrigued Sarah who tried to get into it. I took out the toiletries and placed some toys in the box for her to explore. Since she enjoyed the box so much I'm going to try this Sensory Cardboard Box as well.
