Feeding a Toddler Sucks

Feeding a toddler sucks. I hate making any sort of effort to feed her, just because of the dreaded “No” or the lack of eating anything I worked so hard to think up and create. Another tried and tested kid friendly recipe from the Jooshy kitchen! Just remember, they won’t starve themselves to death. They will eat when they are hungry, and ready to relinquish a bit of control.

Veggie Protein Pizza

one ready made pizza crust (Boboli is fine)

jarred pizza sauce

mozzarella cheese, shredded

chopped lower sodium ham

cottage cheese

grated squash, zucchini (place on paper towel for a minute to soak up the excess water)

thin sliced tomatoes (plum tomatoes are firmer and stand up to the oven better)

broccoli (the tops only, try to leave all the stems off, should resemble green crumbs)

Preheat oven according to pizza crust directions. Spoon on sauce. Place tomatoes on top, followed by some cottage cheese. Sprinkle on shredded cheese. Toss on your sliced ham, broccoli crumbs, and grated veggies. Bake 8-12 minutes. Make sure to let you kids help you prepare this. They will be more likely to eat it if they do. Check out other recipes I have posted as well. As always, I will keep posting recipes as soon as they are child approved!

Just a note: I use full fat foods for my string bean child. If your pediatrician has expressed concern about your child’s weight, using lower fat cheese and other products are great substitutions.
