Good meals for two year old. Bonnie Beaver♥ TTC since Jan 2014; 2 kids; North Pole, Alaska 18155 posts

So I'm coming up blank on dinners to make for my two year old this week. He refuses to use a spoon. :roll: stubborn Child. :lol:



So I need some good, fast (or something I can prepare the night before and refrigerate) meals. Any ideas? Ones that he can preferably eat without a spoon.

do you help him with a spoon? Have you tried hand over hand?

Yeah. He gets angry and throws it at me.

Feed him what you eat? Sure it's a lil messy to eat with your hands sometimes, but they learn best by observing you eat the same things he is eating.

Oh no I meant for both of us to eat. :lol: because if I made us two things he'd want mine. :lol:

My son ate normal things.



Enchiladas (I cut it up for him), tacos (disassembled), quesadillas, rice and beans, guacamole, etc



Pasta with marinara or Alfredo or Pedro and meat, lasagna, spaghetti, shrimp scampi, etc



Pot roast, shepherd's pie, chili, stew, pot pies, casseroles, soup (with only a little broth, mostly solids), pulled pork, BBQ ribs, pizza rolls, quiche, chicken n dumplings, etc



He eats everything. :) perhaps why he's so darn big for his age, haha (92% height)

Hummus and veggies...my dd still eats it. Anything you can dip or put on a stick...meal art (making a story or pictures with the food)



The pita pocket bread is fun too. You can hide a bunch of good stuff in there.
