Just give him what everyone else is eating. Seriously. So many North Americans scoff at that idea… but it’s what most Europeans do.

Cooking separate meals isn’t a good habit to get into. It’s good he eats table food.

My SO’s little nephew eats the same thing as his mom at restaurants lol. At first I was surprised when I visited, but it makes total sense. He’s a little older than your little guy, but I think that as soon as they’re able to eat “normal” food, they should. Don’t want to raise a picky eater.

Yeah, that makes sense!!

I would make sure he gets lots of veggies and fruit. He might not be able to chew them all yet, so you might have to get a bit creative. I think it’s great how you let him eat what everyone else is eating.

I wish I had some good ideas for you lol.

This is what my friends feed their toddlers when they are not eating the same thing.   They generally keep them ready to dish out in the fridge since they keep awhile. They dont have to make them fresh each meal/snack

  • Beans (they will rinse canned really well)
  • cheese pieces
  • tomato cubes
  • sweet potato cubes
  • hamburger patty/veggie burger cut up
  • avocado
  • asparagus pieces 

and really they will jsut serve parts of their leftover dinner again.
