The Early-Toddler Food List

Here it is, folks. Although, looking back, it probably would have been much easier to create a list of foods that younger toddlers SHOULDN’T eat. (1. Peanuts 2. Honey – and there you go! Thanks for visiting, Good Night and Good Luck!)

Fruit (almost all types were mentioned)
Steamed vegetables
Cheese, cheese and MORE CHEESE (Wito says HELL YEAH.)
Annie’s Mac & Cheese
Various Pastas
Chunks of Rotisserie chicken
Scrambled eggs
Frozen whole wheat waffles
Creamy peanut butter (no history of family food allergies)
Cream cheese/jelly on flat bread
Chicken nuggets
Sweet potato
Grilled cheese
Boca burgers
Hummus (all different kinds)
Cooked sushi rolls
Leftover stir-fries and curries
Earth’s Best Organic cheese crackers
YoBaby Yogurt (Wito loves the kind with fruit and cereal mixed in, but he requests that I sing, “Yo Baby Yo Baby YO!” every time. Or maybe it’s just me.)
Organic Greens With Envy from Trader Joes
Tater Tots
Pirate’s Booty
String cheese
Chef Boyardee microwaveables
Corn bran cereal (look out below!)
Thinly-sliced deli meat
Roasted veggies
Turkey burgers
Green beans
LEFTOVERS (from the night before! DUH.)

Please leave any other ideas in the comments section. Thanks for everyone’s input!

On to much more important stuff, like mah hair. According to my handy-dandy poll counter, I will be venturing into bang territory. Of course my hair stylist is in Mexico, so my appointment isn’t until next Thursday, giving me plenty of time to look through magazines and change my mind daily. However, this is a democracy people! You speak and I listen! Bangs, here I tentatively come! (Although, if they are ugly, it’s totally your fault.)

    The people have spoken. Woohoo bangs!

    (I love Nicole Richie’s bangs. Even though she totally sucks, she has nice bangs.)

    As if you were not GORGEOUS enough already – holy cow – the bangs, they are perfection on you. You need to totally get them.

    I also agree with all the toddler foods mentioned and wanted to add Cheerios (regular or Honey Nut, if there are no allergies lurking) and Kix cereal.

    Oh yeah, in case I didn’t say it before? Get the bangs.

    Thanks for the list. Although it’s mighty depressing that 95% of those foods are not available at the only American store in Okinawa. (Alas, it’s one of the sacrifices we make for living here and also will be part of the reason my mind melts when we finally move back to the states.) ANYWAY, we do actually have Annie’s canned Pasta Stars and my picky eater LOVES him some pasta stars. I agree with previous commenter re: “canned foods bad, whole foods good” but I also firmly believe
    1. All things in moderation and
    2. If something as innocent as a can of pasta every now and then will cause permanent damage, we’ve got some serious issues.

    Nobody suggested Ice Cream or Diet Coke? Can you tell I’m on my third baby? ;)

    Um. I’m kidding about the Diet Coke. :)

    great list! however…. i’d take the chef boyardee (microwave) off – it’s full of trans fat. I used to feed it to my little one until I read the label.
    Man… if my kid ate everything on that list my life would be a heck of a lot easier!

    Mimi is starting to grow out of her dairy allergies, so we should start expanding our repertoire a little. Thanks for compiling the list.

    Welcome to the major stinky diaper diet plan! Wow… if you thought that poo was bad BEFORE the normal people food, prepare! Now you get to find out the sorts of things that make little Witos tummy go “No Thank You! Please try again!”

    Or maybe all will be well… lets hope he doesn’t have a testy tummy like my little cousins. Yuck.
