Tips for Making Easy Toddler Recipes
  • Freezer-Friendly: a great way to make feeding your toddler super easy is always to have a stash of toddler-approved meals in the freezer. If there are any leftovers, I will place them in the freezer for a later meal. This works great for muffins, waffles, meatballs, chicken nuggets, etc. Basically, anything you can find in the grocery store’s frozen section can be frozen with your own homemade recipes. You can also make a double batch of your kiddo’s favorite recipes so you can have a backup plan when life gets crazy (or toddler gets demanding;).
  • Make Once – Serve Again: if you are making a bigger or more time-consuming meal (anything over 30 minutes for dinner), it’s a great idea to save the leftovers and use those in another toddler meal. You can serve the same meal or use parts of the meal in another meal altogether – chicken can be added into cheese quesadillas, pasta can be served with a different sauce, soup can be served with different sides like grilled cheese or turkey sandwich or used as a sauce for pasta or rice.
  • Quick Toddler Meals: a key way to not lose your mind is to always have a list (and the ingredients) for a quick meal for toddlers. Print out or make a list of these easy breakfast, lunch, and dinner ideas and keep them on hand for when life is super crazy and your toddler needed to eat 10 minutes ago.

Toddler Daily Nutritional Guidelines

According to the 2020-2025 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, nutrients of concern for underconsumption in a child’s second year are vitamin D, calcium, fiber, and potassium, so make sure your toddler gets a variety of foods with these nutrients daily.  

Below are recommended daily intakes for toddlers of different ages. Still, it’s important to look at what your child eats throughout the whole week instead of focusing on each day since toddlers’ eating habits can be erratic and unpredictable. As long as you keep offering a variety of foods from all of the food groups, your child’s nutrition should balance out each week. 

Daily Recommended Intake for Toddlers 12-23 months

  • 700-1,000 calories a day split between 3 meals and 2 snacks
  • Half of the daily calories should be from healthy fats
  • 2/3 – 1 cup of vegetables daily
  • ½ – 1 cup of fruit daily
  • 1 ¾ – 3 ounces of grains daily
  • 1 2/3 – 2 cups of dairy daily
  • 2 ounces of protein daily

Daily Recommended Intake for Toddlers 2-4 years

  • 1,000-1,400 calories a day for girls and 1,000-1,600 calories for boys split between 3 meals and 1-2 snacks
  • Healthy fats should be reduced to about 30% of total daily calories
  • 1-2 cups of vegetables daily
  • 1- 1 ½ cups of fruit daily
  • 3 – 5 ounces of grains daily
  • 2 – 2 ½ cups of dairy daily
  • 2 – 5 ounces of protein daily

How to Build a Toddler Meal

A good method for building a well-balanced meal for 1-3-year-old toddlers is to include foods from a variety of food groups each day. You don’t have to have all food groups represented at every meal but make sure you offer a protein at all meals and snacks to help keep little bellies full. 

A typical toddler plate should be made up of:

  • half fruits and veggies
  • a quarter of grains
  • a quarter protein
  • serving of dairy

When serving dairy products, give whole milk products until age 2. Focus on whole fruits instead of fruit juice and aim to make half of grains whole grains for more fiber and other nutrients.

Offer foods multiple times, even if your toddler acts like he does not like it, because it can take up to 15 times of being presented with a food for a child to develop a taste for it. Try offering foods cooked in a variety of ways so your toddler can explore different tastes and textures. Even better, serve your child what you are eating (in age-appropriate sizes, of course) and eat meals together so you can model healthy eating behaviors for them.

60+ Healthy Superfoods to Try

Make feeding your baby and 1 year old easier with this go-to list of healthy baby food recipes. Each of the 60+ ideas is easy to make at home, tastes great, and introduces baby to delicious flavors and nutrients!

Baby Food Recipes

Deciding what to make for baby when they start solids can be a little daunting, so I wanted to put together a resource that breaks it down by age. Included in this post you’ll find ideas for what to feed a 6 month old baby, an 8 month old baby, a 10 month old baby, and a 1 year old.

Each child is unique and will progress through the phases of starting solids differently, so adjust as needed for your child.

TIP: Keep in mind that babies should avoid added sugars and salts, so simply eliminate them as needed from any recipes. If you’re making something to share with a baby, you can salt your serving to taste.

Baby Food Recipes 6+ Months

Offering a 6 month old baby healthy, flavorful foods is a great way to set them up for success when starting solids. Some babies will show more interest in food than others, so don’t worry if your baby takes a month or so to get into food…or dives right in from the start!

  • Applesauce
  • Avocado puree
  • Banana puree
  • Broccoli puree
  • Butternut Squash puree
  • Carrot puree
  • Cantaloupe puree: Blend until smooth, adding a little water if needed.
  • Green bean puree
  • Mango Puree
  • Peach puree
  • Pear puree
  • Pea puree
  • Raspberry puree
  • Sweet potato puree
  • Quinoa Baby Cereal
  • Zucchini puree: Blend any cooked zucchini until smooth, adding a little water if needed.

TIP: You can feed these purees to baby or offer them on a preloaded spoon so baby can feed herself. You can find the full information on the baby led weaning style of feeding here.

Baby Food Recipes 8+ Months

Continue offering nutrient rich fruits and vegetables, as well as whole grains, protein, iron-rich foods, and some dairy such as plain whole milk yogurt.

Most babies in the 8-10 month range are able to pick up and eat pea-size pieces of food, so aim for about that size with their finger foods.

  • Baby Pasta
  • Boiled Beets
  • Black Beans
  • Egg Muffins with Zucchini
  • Cottage Cheese Dip
  • Hummus with beets
  • Hummus with butternut squash
  • Hummus with carrots
  • Lamb Meatballs
  • Mango Smoothie
  • Marinara Sauce with Extra Veggies
  • Meatballs with Extra Veggies
  • Oatmeal with Butternut Squash
  • Instant Pot Pinto Beans
  • Sauteed Apples
  • Sauteed Pears
  • Sesame Tofu
  • Strawberry Applesauce
  • Strawberry Smoothie
  • Sweet Potato Pancakes
  • Sweet Potatoes Puree with Coconut

TIP:  You can also try Homemade Baby Food Combinations.

Baby Food Recipes 10+ Months

Continue serving a 10-12 month old baby healthy finger foods cut up into a small dice as most won’t yet be able to take appropriate sized bites of food. Soft finger foods are great for this age (they’re often called “Stage 3 baby foods“).

  • Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal with Raisins
  • Applesauce Muffins
  • Baby Muffins
  • Baked Oatmeal Cups
  • Banana Spinach Pancakes
  • Butternut Squash Risotto
  • Caramelized Bananas
  • Chicken Nuggets with Sweet Potato
  • Coconut Rice
  • Lentil Soup with Veggies
  • Mashed Potatoes with Broccoli
  • Overnight Oats with Applesauce
  • Spinach Banana Muffins
  • Soft Roasted Chickpeas
  • Shredded Chicken
  • Stewed Peaches
  • Sweet Potato Hash
  • Roasted Salmon
  • Wild Salmon Cakes
  • Mini Meatballs with Kale

TIP: Babies at this age can eat many of the same foods as the rest of the family, but still may need extra attention to the size of their food (a small dice is good) and the texture. Continue to avoid anything too crunchy, sticky, or hard.

Homemade Baby Food Recipes for 1 Year Old

As your baby turns into a toddler, they can continue eating the same types of food though you can keep expanding the textures you offer. And remember to offer a variety of foods for the best range of nutrients and foundation of flavors.

  • Baby Cookies
  • Baked Zucchini Fritters
  • Banana Oatmeal Pancakes
  • Baked Banana French Toast Sticks
  • Butternut Squash Mac and Cheese
  • Cauliflower Mac and Cheese
  • Cheesy Rice
  • Easy Cheese Crackers
  • Healthy Pasta Salad

  • Veggie Chili

What foods can I puree for my baby?

You can puree any foods that you’d like to spoon feed your baby by adding a little breastmilk, formula, or water to the desired consistency.

What is the best food for baby to start with?

You can feel free to go with a nutrient dense fruit, vegetable, or baby cereal, or with something rich in iron such as beef. The rules have relaxed a lot in recent years, so as long as the food is a single food without added sugars or salts, there are really a lot of options!

TIP: Find my best 10 No-Cook Baby Foods here.

How do you make baby food with a blender?

You can puree almost any soft food in a blender simply by adding enough water to get the blender to blend. It’s often not possible to do a small quantity in a regular blender, but you can do 1-2 cups and freeze small portions in an ice cube tray.

Just transfer the frozen cubes to a zip top freezer bag for longer term storage.

What’s the deal with baby food stages?

When starting to think about starting solids with baby, you’ll see a lot of labels of baby food stages. Learn what the terms Stage 1, Stage 2, and Stage 3 mean related to baby food—and the ages and recommended recipes that correspond to each—in this explainer post.
