Munchkin Meals – #8

Boy, have I got some great Munchkin Meals for you!

I think it’s been about two months since I last joined in with Munchkin Meals, but that is primarily because of the move and just not having the time or energy to sit down and talk “baby food.” However, Emmett continues to be a phenomenal eater. He definitely goes in spurts of wanting nothing but carby foods, to eating whatever we put in front of him, but either way he tries almost anything once. This works out nicely because we’re not making two separate meals.

The past month has been a good one as far as Munchkin Meals are concerned, we had a wide variety of foods. Check out all the pictures below.

munchkin-meals-4314-10Emmett is a sucker for berries! We can fill his plate with strawberries, blueberries, raspberries or blackberries and he’ll go to town on them. Though, as I’m writing this, he’s refusing to eat his blueberries… Could he be over them!? It’s been over a year that they’ve been an Emmett favorite.


It took Emmett awhile to warm up to eggs, but now he loves them, especially because he only gets them on weekend mornings.

Weekday mornings usually consist of yogurt, a bagel and a banana.


This is also Emmett’s first breakfast in the new apartment.

Emmett typically eats lunch at school, but on weekends we tend to keep things simple, opting for sunflower butter and jelly sandwiches, some string cheese and some fruit (that’s what’s in the first picture). But check out this face, covered in sunflower butter – adorable, right!?


And then we have a wide variety of dinners that Emmett has eaten and loved.


kale and mushroom soup (that he loved), garlic stuffed green olives and blueberries

My son is totally mine! He loves green olives stuffed with garlic, he’ll just keep eating them if we let him. And he knows when we go to Wegmans, if I’m filling up at the Olive Bar, that he gets to have one as we walk the aisles.


Chicken Tacos, Rice, blueberries and yogurt (because he didn’t really like the chicken)


Deconstructed hamburgers, french fries, bananas and strawberries


corned beef, potatoes and cabbage

This Irish boy LOVED his daddy’s corned beef and cabbage. He went to town on everything, including the cabbage.


chili, banana and baby carrots

And I just thought I’d share a couple adorable pictures of Emmett. He adores taking photos and saying “CHEESE!”

That about does it for this month’s Munchkin Meals. I love sharing Emmett’s favorites with you, it’s fun to let you into our little world.

Do you find that your child goes in spurts with food? Or do they usually eat pretty well-rounded all of the time? Share in the comments below!

Munchkin Meals – #7

Hey Everyone, it’s Munchkin Meals time!

Munchkin Meals is a link up that Brittany at A Healthy Slice of Life created to share what her daughter was eating, I link-up monthly to share what Emmett’s been eating. 


It’s been awhile since I posted a Munchkin Meals update, I apologize for that! Rest assured that Emmett’s palate continues to advance, and he now has favorites. 🙂


A typical morning breakfast – Greek yogurt, homemade bread and jam, slice bacon and oranges.

Most days, whatever we make for dinner, we will give to Emmett as well. There are times, when it’s a spicy meal, we’ll make him something else, but we usually start with whatever we are eating. Occasionally we’ll have to veer from that and give him yogurt or a grilled cheese sandwich because he’s refusing to eat what we made, but we try at least offer it to him. It seems to work. As of late, he’s eaten things like shredded salsa chicken and pulled pork, two things he had never tried before and now LOVES!


It’s fun to give him new foods and watch him experience the different tastes and textures. One of his most recent favorites are garlic stuffed green olives from the olive bar at Wegmans. You wouldn’t think an 18 month old toddler would like green olives, but he does. He’s just like his momma (although, I hated them as a kid).


Daddy made us waffles!

Emmett has never been big on eating meat, other than chicken nuggets, he usually refuses chicken breast or even burgers. What we found recently, is that he likes shredded meat. I can’t explain why, but I’m not going to question it, we’ll just take a few minutes before dinner and shread up the chicken, steak or pork and serve it to him that way. As for burgers, well, I don’t have answer for that. 😀


He was trying to help me focus the camera.

Be sure to stop on over and visit Brittany, and link-up with her Munchkin Meals!

Your turn!

What are some of your child’s favorite meals?

Do you have to serve your child food a special way, just so that they’ll eat it?
