Your little ones favourite table foods?

posted 5 years 2 months ago
I love getting inspiration and ideas from other mums about what their little ones like to eat - that way I can try it on my daughter!

My 1 year old right now adores meatballs, corn, olives (random, I know, since I couldn't stand olives at all as a child!) and peaches. The only thing she has really turned her nose up at has been peas!

What about your little ones? What foods are they loving right now?

My boy is loving custard, Complan, fish meals, fluffy cake, french toast, bread and jam and also mashed potatoes. He used to be a better eater as a baby but it seems they get bored with some type of food; their taste buds mature and they become picky.
The most important thing is keeping them on good and healthy diets.

I have a two year old and her favorite food is oatmeal. She will eat oatmeal for every meal. In addition to oatmeal some of her favorite foods are rice, spaghetti, sausage, and applesauce. My daughter is a very picky eater. I will be glad when she requires a taste for more things.

Every day is a new eating adventure in our house because she ( 2 year old) will love something today and next time, she will hate it. So now I'm putting some color in our dishes...yesterday I made pink rice...she absolutely loved it and finished her plate. So next time when I make rice, I will probably make blue rice. (Pink and Blue is her favorite colors). Other food she likes, or rather loves, is bananas, yogurt and potatoes. Bananas and Yogurt is my go to things when she's fussy, then I know at least she is eating something because she will never say no to a banana or yogurt. When we go grocery shopping I always load a bunch of bananas and grapes in the trolley, that keeps her busy and quiet for the whole shopping trip.

My youngest is 6 now buy I remember when he was littler he would eat just about anything. He loved fruits of all kinds - strawberries, canteloupe, blueberries, bananas etc. Then he really loved pasta and still does. He also loved meat - chicken, pork, beef, sausages. He's a little pickier an eater now but still eats variety of foods.

Both of my daughters are really simple with their food preferences. Anytime I ask them what they want. They will both reply egg. If I letthem it would be an everyday meal for them.Sunny side up egg and rice make them the happiest kids in the world hahaha.

My daughter is almost two years old. I make big batches of chicken noodle soup and she loves it so much! It is a great way to get her to eat her veggies. Another favorite of hers is strawberries with cubes of cheese. Its a great healthy snack and I love seeing her smile when sees me cutting them up.

My daughter has been in love with strawberries lately too! We went on a family outing to a local indoor green house a few weeks ago, where you could pick your own berries - she thought it was the best thing ever! We've been buying punnets of strawberries lately and she's been going through them quickly! I'm happy she enjoys fruit so much though Smile

I completely understand, my daughter will eat a whole carton if I let her. I also make smoothies with frozen fruit and add spinach and kale to help her intake of green. It has worked out well because we both eat healthy together.

My daughter will eat the whole container of strawberries that I buy when they are on sale. In one sitting! But at least they are good for her. She was a less picky eater when she was a toddler than she is now, but she loves eating salad and she does love vegetables except peas and loves fruit. My son will consume anything that is in front of his face except cheese. He had an milk intolerance as a baby and has never really gotten to like cheese or regular milk. He eats any vegetable but it has to be cooked. They both love meat and pastas.

My son is about to turn two years old. With food, he's not that picky but he does have a few he doesn't really like. These are:

  • Mung Bean Stew
  • Bitter Melon
  • Avocado (I don't know why, but he used to like this one)

So I try to avoid cooking or serving these foods to him. Otherwise, he loves a lot of foods. With meals, his favourite would be Tinola or Afritada.

Tinola is just chicken boiled in water with some garlic and ginger. When it's already soft and cooked, you add in the green papaya and some fish sauce. After that, you add in the malunggay leaves.

Afritada is yet another chicken dish. You just sauté onions, garlics and tomatoes and add in the chicken. Cook it until lightly brown and add in the tomato sauce. Then you let it simmer and add in the potatoes and carrots.

With fruits, he loves mangoes! He can eat that everyday, lol. He also loves eating tomatoes on its own. Then, of course, bananas, he loves that as well. Grapes, papayas and even honeydew are his favourites as well. Actually, he's not that picky with fruits.

When my children were younger, they usually eat fruits (apple, banana, papaya,dragon fruit, etc), vegetables (celery, cucumber, potato, etc), porridge, noodles, pasta, rice (when they were older a bit), hard boiled egg (after one year old) and sometimes fish fillet. They always drank soup as well.

I didn't add any seasonings or flavors in their food when they were young, so they always just ate the food plain.
