Looking for healthy toddler meals? Here are 100 real-life toddler plates with ideas for breakfast, lunch and dinner from a Registered Dietitian to inspire you.

Hi Friends!

When my oldest child was a toddler, I took SO many photos of his toddler food. So many more than I take of my third kid’s plate as a two-year-old 🙂 As I started sharing them, people constantly asked me for more healthy toddler meals so I started saving the photos and rounding them up into large posts like this.

Food for toddlers can be tricky and I’m hopeful that posts like this help inspire some parents who might be stuck in a mealtime rut!

For more ideas, check out my other roundup post of 150+ Simple Toddler Meal Ideas.

If you have kids that are a little older and you need lunch box ideas, I have a whole guide- A Month of Easy Packed Lunch Ideas For Kids to help you out!
