I don’t know about you peeps, but I cook about 80% of my meals using my iPhone or my computer. Now, don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love the feel and touch of a cook book and I trust the recipes, but when time calls for something new, something tried, and something exciting, I always end up on one of three sites: Pinterest, Foodgawker, or Healthy Aperture.
Today I wanted to share with you my top 10 toddler-friendly recipes that I’ve tried and loved.
I must tell you that these aren’t strictly toddler recipes since in our house our toddler eats, for the most part, what we eat. (I guess I should probably retitle this “family-friendly” but the title is all the way up there…). So here we go.

1. This one is via Pinterest, but the link says it’s spam. So here is the recipe: COOK CHICKEN IN THE CROCKPOT MIXED WITH ONE 1OZ PACKET OF RANCH SEASONING MIX AND ONE 1OZ PACKET OF TACO SEASONING WITH ONE CAN OF CHICKEN BROTH AND COOKED ON LOW FOR 3 HOURS. SHRED CHICKEN AND SERVE WITH TOPPINGS.
2. Halibut Cakes (I made these with other fish, but they taste amazing!) via Pinterest.
3. Lo Mein via RasaMalaysia. I make a slightly adjusted version that I think is a little more toddler-friendly with peas, shredded carrots, chicken, scallions and light-sodium soy sauce, or whatever happens to be around the kitchen. I don’t think you can really go wrong with lo mein.
4. Asparagus, Spinach, and Feta Quiche via Peas and Their Pod. My toddler will actually eat pretty much any kind of quiche, so this is always a win, but the asparagus and the feta in this one are so delicious that the adults fight for the last piece (true story: I brought this over to my folks house).
5. Zucchini Cheddar Drop Biscuits via A Cozy Kitchen. We make a lot of variations of these ones with different cheeses, veggies, and other combinations. Peanut loves anything that’s not chopped into tiny little pieces because she might choke, and these are soft enough for her to eat on her own.
6. Chicken Parmesan Meatloaf via What’s Cooking Chicago. I always make two of these and then freeze one for an easy meal when we’re running low on time.
