23 Toddler meals and ideas

I'm finally sharing another What I Ate Wednesday post! Today is a bit special because I managed to snap photos of my sidekick's meals. I'm quite excited about this as well because this is the first week that I have been back in the kitchen since my accident. 

Over 20 healthy and easy toddler meal ideas by Welcome to Mommyhood, #healthymealsforkids, #healthykidsmeals, #healthtoddlermeals,

We had tons of fresh fruit and veggies stocked up in the fridge (because I had seriously missed them since being in the hospital and rehabilitation centre) and incorporated them as much as possible into every meal.

Mr. Toddler also needed the detox from french fries and candy that he had been getting since I'm not around as much. The kiddo was actually quite happy with the extra veg and fruits and amazed me with how eagerly he devoured them! 

I have to say though that I can definitely tell a change in Mr. Toddler's behaviour based on the days that he does consume more junk food as opposed to the days that he... well... doesn't. No sugar rush means he listens very well, can play relatively calmly, and we generally avoid major meltdowns. Sugary, processed foods? Oh man! The tantrums, running away, and even throwing objects are sure to happen as he cannot contain his energy. I definitely try to avoid them. 

Anyhow, let's get to it! Here is a look at the meals Mr. Toddler enjoyed on Monday!

Toddler friendly healthy meal plan

What what - a meal plan is finaaally being published? Yes! I'm super excited to get cooking, get back to food, get back to taking care of my men (Mr. Toddler + Mr. Husband). 

So does this mean you're going home? Well, no. Sadly, I still have a few more weeks to hang out at the rehabilitation centre, but this lovely place has a little house on it's property that is completely wheelchair friendly that we will be staying in for 8 days! 

These days are going to be fairly hectic as I will still have very intensive therapy, as well as a house guest - Mr. Toddler while the hubby will be working during the week. Going to therapy with Mr. Toddler shall be quite an adventure and quite the test for my energy levels. 

A mini life update 

Given that I haven't been as active as I had hoped during my recovery, I guess there's no post like a meal plan to leave you guys updated - I'm doing very well! I am finally at a point where I am independent and can care not only for myself but also for Mr. Toddler who gets to stay the night with me every so often.

This also leaves me quite exhausted and unorganised when it comes to doing anything except for the day to day tasks involved in caring for myself and my kiddo. 

Basically, my computer time has been pretty minimal. As my energy comes back, especially with my release date coming up in a few weeks, I really do hope to get back to blogging here regularly again. I do have a few projects and bigger things I am working on at the moment so I am realistically planning to get back to the pre-accident swing of things around the start of the next academic year. Then, it seems like a logical start for lots of toddler/preschool (eep!) activities as well as more food because summer basically means barbecuing and salads for me. 

In the meantime, here's my first meal plan since my accident, which will also be my first time cooking again! This first week will be quite intense so my strategy is to go for easy, large portions for tons of leftovers! The husband will only be joining Mr. Toddler and I in the weekend so I can really get away with making some super quick meals! 

I am also so, so, so, so excited to get away from hospital food which has meant that I go to the cafeteria at least once a week and get french fries. Because that's all they have and they're better than hospital food. I guess. Oh yes, meal plan... here it is!
