Feeding Our 22 Month Old Baby Boy: Toddler Food

I’m going to start this post with a confession: Sometimes, I feed the wee one canned chicken noodle soup for dinner.  It’s pretty much the only way to guarantee he will consume vegetables on purpose.  I drain off the broth to get rid of some of the sodium.  Mom fail?  You be the judge (or don’t- because judging is mean).

It’s not that I haven’t tried to get him to like vegetables.  You know those cute little food pictures that people make to convince their children that vegetables are fun and delicious?  I tried them- a few times.  He was not impressed.

Our 22 month old son’s favorite foods:

  • Sweet potatoes (roasted with cinnamon and a touch of sea salt)
  • Chicken
  • Bacon (also known as “bake bake”)
  • Blueberries
  • Bananas
  • Mangoes
  • Pretty much all fruit
  • Sweets of all kinds
  • Milk- regular, almond, soy.  Doesn’t matter- just give him the milk!
  • Pancakes
  • Waffles (or “Faffles”)
  • Smoothies (like the Spinach Mango Smoothie)

Our 22 month old son’s most hated enemies (or least favorite foods):

  • Anything green, especially vegetable-like objects
  • Chunky soups
  • Beans
  • Things that are too crunchy
  • Anything perceived to be “hot”- spice-wise or temperature-wise

Mostly, I’m pretty cool with his food choices.  I put vegetables on his plate every day just to keep reminding him that they are a part of the meal even if he chooses not to partake.  Of all the battles that I can choose to fight with the almost two-year-old, food is not one of them.  He eats a fairly balanced diet, drinks tons of water, and is super healthy.

What are your kids’ favorite foods?

Any tips for turning a veggie hater into a veggie lover?
