Munchkin Meals

Not once in my wildest dreams did I think I would be “meal planning” for me 8 1/2 month old but here I am doing it.  I also never realized how HARD it can be!  Luckily, my girl Brittany from A Healthy Slice of Life had the genius idea of creating a link-up where moms can showcase what they are feeding their babies.  I am super excited to be a part of this this week and maybe get some new ideas :)  Baby Led Weaning is still going strong over here with Emmalyne basically eating whatever we are.  Without further ado … here are Em’s eats from yesterday!

BREAKFAST

 

Emmie enjoyed an egg scrambled with spinach and nutritional yeast, chopped blueberries, and 2 mini whole wheat waffles with 1 drop of syrup.  She goes NUTS over the waffles.  She finishes those first and then moves on to the rest of her meal haha.

 

LUNCH

 

Chopped turkey, steamed broccoli, and strawberries.  Yes, I know strawberries are on the dreaded allergen list.  Emmie got some by accident the other day, loved them, and didn’t have a reaction.  Now they are a staple in our house.  Chris and I both LOVE strawberries so it’s only fitting that she takes after us 😉

 

SNACKS

 

Emmie enjoyed some yogurt melts while I cleaned the kitchen and prepped for dinner.  We have tried a couple different organic brands and she loves them all.  Here are some of her other favorite snacks:

 

Emmie actually woke up from her afternoon nap with a fever … she had one last week and it went away but it came back with a vengeance today.  She fell asleep at 5PM and missed dinner.  I woke her up at 6:45 to get her in her jammies, give her some advil, and nurse her.  Chris worked late so he didn’t get home until 7:45 but Em was able to say good night to him before going back to bed.  Poor baby :(

 

Since she skipped dinner, I thought I would share some of our favorite frozen go to foods:

Thanks Brittany for hosting such a fun link-up!  Make sure you all check it out HERE.

If you’re a mom, what’s your baby’s favorite foods?
