I’m back with another baby eats post! I suppose once Beckett turns two I’ll change it to “toddler eats”. 😉
B is currently 1 1/2 years old. He’s still plant based and generally eats a lot of the same things I eat. We still really limit his sugar intake (besides fruit) but a few bites of coconut ice cream here and there doesn’t bother me. He recently had a bit of a cold (so did I) but otherwise has been the picture of health!
You’ll notice my food is in a lot of these pictures and that’s because generally his meal is a smaller, sometimes simpler, version of mine. I love baby led weaning! I feel like he is so great with different textures and trying new things because of it. Don’t get me wrong, there are a lot of veggies he doesn’t want to eat on their own but overall he eats a good variety (and I sneak veggies into a lot of things including smoothies!). He really loves plant-sources of protein like tofu, chickpeas, black beans, kidney beans and edamame so having him eat plant based has been easy so far!
Smoothie bowls! Homemade granola.
I bought this baby cereal when we were traveling and here I just added it to our oatmeal!
He loves nut butter on toast! I eat oatmeal most mornings so that’s what he tends to have but he does go through phases where he doesn’t want it.
Gluten free pasta with tomato sauce plus butternut squash. He likes asparagus if it’s really really soft haha he wasn’t a fan of it here. Kale he will eat some of if it’s really crispy. Noodles + sauce are always a hit though!
Quinoa is usually a hit although tricky for him to eat haha Here I added green peas (hit or miss) and edamame (he loves it).
Buckwheat pancakes. Usually on Sunday’s I’ll make waffles or pancakes for the family. He did eat more than what you see here, haha.
Lots of beans! We don’t eat tortilla chips THAT often but he does absolutely love them, just like I do. 😛
Sweet potato with a southwest tofu scramble. Tofu scrambles are currently a big favorite of his.

Also, I keep meaning to switch to a plate for him but still haven’t. The bowls do work well and he’s used to them but I’d like to give him larger portions and be able to separate some things so a plate would work better for that. I just can’t decide if I want an EZPZ mat (mini or big??) or something else. Help!
