{Tyke Bites} Breakfast Quesadillas, Eggplant Pizza & More!

Searching for fresh ideas to feed your toddler? Then take a gander at this week's installation in my Tyke Bite series, featuring a random day of meals (and yummy thrills, ha) for my hungry little quad squad...

Breakfast was a new one for us: peanut butter, banana and chocolate chip quesadillas. May not sound like the most appetizing thing, but it was pretty tasty! Easy to make with lots of protein via the PB (or you can also use nut butter or Nutella). The kiddos approved it and I even ate a couple small slices for myself.

For lunch, I served a simple staple of turkey lunch meat, fruit, pickles, pretzels, cheese, mini muffins and veggie sticks, but just changed the presentation. Ice cub trays! At first, the quads seemed a little puzzled. But I haven't seen them so focused or entertained by a meal as they were by this one in awhile. They really seemed to enjoy hunting for the next food of choice in their tray, so we'll definitely be redoing this one!

Mmm mmm. Dinner was a Julia Child recipe I pinned from Kalyn's Kitchen a couple weeks ago: eggplant pizzas. The husband loved it and the kids actually ate a couple bites each, they just didn't seem to care for the skin of the eggplant since it's a slightly odd chewing texture. I rounded out their meal with fruit, Ritz crackers and cheese sticks. The husband and I enjoyed our aubergine pizzas with Caesar salads.

My Tot Food board on Pinterest is slowly growing with more fun ideas—including plenty I've yet to try, like this Funfetti Cake Batter Smoothie!—and I pin my Tyke Bites posts there as well if you'd like to save them for yourself. Eat and enjoy!

  1. I am ALWAYS amazed that you cook three meals a day and seven days a week!!! Those babies eat so well!!!

  2. Have you heard of Muffin Tin Mondays? My friend started them on her blog when my kids were smaller. I just googled them at looks like they have "petered out. " but there are a lot of good fun ideas that you would like. They remind me of your ice cube trays.

  3. I love the breakfast quesadilla idea! The quads love all of the components, and eat traditional versions really well. Must add to my kid food board. I bet it would pair well with the cake batter smoothie for calcium.


I love to hear from any readers out there, just keep it clean and friendly!
