I like to look vlogs up on YouTube to get a good idea. Snacks that I like and are easy are the no sugar added fruit cups, yogurt and steamed veggies and potatoes and for protein, my son just always eats off of us. I’m always looking for new things to for my son too cause I find that when he eats small but still plentiful frequent meals, he wakes up less to have a bottle at night.
Fried rice loaded with veggies and protein is a favourite of my sons! Quesadillas, pasta with homemade cheese sauce with peas and ham, grilled cheese. tortellini with cream sauce, Italian sausage and spinach (another household favourite that kiddo devours). Pm me if you want more ideas! Pinterest is a really good resource for meals, too.
I may be alone here but I feel 13 mo is pretty young for meals. 🤷🏻♀️ We did blw with lots of snacking at that age to supplement high protein milk because we’re vegan: fruit so much fruit, frozen peas, crackers, chips, beans, tofu w/ soy sauce, Ohs, noodles, toast, oatmeal, muffins...
What’s your high protein milk? Curious. I’m not a fan of cow milk and would love for my kids to have another option that was healthy.
It’s all at the discretion of the parent IMO. My son was down to nursing only a handful of times a day so he needed proper meals at that age (it took a long time to get him liking milk from a cup).
Shake and bake!
Leftovers from last nights supper with some fruit on the side meet all your criteria lol.
I have a bunch of easy make ahead recipes that have been successful with my toddler recently (if you have Instagram check me out @macmanor_mama, I often put them in my stories when I do my weekly meal prep and then add them to my highlights under everyday).
