This simple snack is loaded with antioxidants, protein, fiber, healthy fats and zinc which supports immune health. I buy organic raw pumpkin seeds. When Ella was younger, I would squash the blueberries to make it easier for her to eat, but now that she has teeth, she is able to consume the blueberries just as they are.

We love the Kite Hill dairy-free, almond milk yogurt which contains 11 grams of protein, no added sugar and probiotics. We buy the unsweetened and unsweetened vanilla. Greek yogurt is easier for toddlers to eat because it is thicker and sticks on a spoon better. Mix in some cinnamon and add a side of blueberries!

These are a big hit at our house! I take a tortilla, add hummus, cut into strips and roll into smaller bite size pieces. We like to use Siete tortillas, but any will work. Cedar’s is our current go to hummus.

This pasta is made with legumes so it is high in protein and gluten-free! The pesto is dairy-free and full of nutrients. Get the recipe here!

Avocados are rich in Omega 3 fats which support brain and heart health as well as fiber! Start with a piece of bread lightly toasted and then mash a ripe avocado. Spread avocado on top of toast and then I like to cut into little sticks that Ella can easily grab and enjoy!

These muffins are made with only a few simple ingredients and Ella eats them weekly! Get the recipes for these spinach muffins here! Baking pan with spinach muffins and two muffins in white paper in front of pan.


This oatmeal is packed with fiber, protein, potassium, Omega 3 fats and energizing carbohydrates! To note, serving large globs of nut butter is not recommend for children because it can be a choking hazard. I got a little carried away with the amount of nut butter I topped on this oatmeal when filming and taking a photo! We do include nut butter such as almond or peanut butter, just a smaller amount that we mix in!
