One question I get often is, “What do I feed Mack?” Feeding a toddler can be choppy waters to navigate. We started out with a not-so-picky eater but as he gets older, he is becoming quite opinionated. And so I thought I would share a few recipes from the site that help bring us all together at dinner.
For most of the recipes, I leave the salt out until the end, use no-sodium vegetable broth, and am cautious about the spice level of things like chipotle and curry powder. Beyond that, he eats whatever we eat. Below are mine (and Mack’s) favorite kid-friendly vegetarian recipes. Can I guarantee your child will love these? No, but it’s worth a shot. I’m a firm believer that if you create a ‘normal’ that is full of grains, vegetables, and legumes- they will be more likely to choose them.

Most meals end up as finger foods. And so, I try to work around that issue by making items that he can easily eat with his hands and foods that are awesome as leftovers. The lentil bites and the falafel are my top two favorites. They are perfect for Mack and also make for a substantial dinner for M and I.
