Toddler Lunch Ideas

Today's post is all about food - Namely lunch for your toddlers!

Harry is currently 4, so I'm not 100% sure that he counts as a toddler, but these are some of the great meals we have been feeding him during lockdown!

Keep your eyes peeled for breakfast and dinner ideas too!

For most of Harry's meals, we use section plates. Harry gets very upset if things touch on his plate a lot of the time. 

Our current favourite plates for him are these munchkin apple shaped plates - We got ours from Amazon - You can find these here (Please be aware links to Amazon are affiliate links - I may earn a small commission for your purchase but this will not affect the amount you pay!)

1. Picnic lunch - This lunch is definitely a huge hit in our house. We try and keep this as balanced as possible - He usually has a sandwich, fruit, dairy, protein and a treat. While he doesn't always have everything listed we find when he has a picnic lunch he usually eats most of it quite well.

2. Snack lunch  - What toddler doesn't love a snack? Harry normally doesn't even really realise this is a lunch and always demolishes this. The most often used combination is hummus with carrot and cucumber, fruit, cheese string, chorizo and yoghurt, but again this varies depending on what we have in.

3. Hot lunch - This is possibly the one we have least for Harry and probably his least favourite but he still does love it. 
We do still tend to try and give Harry a balanced meal when giving him hot food though, so he always had some kind of fruit with these lunches. 


  1. Great ideas! Love the variety too, Harry is one lucky 4-year-old :)

  2. I don't know about toddlers but a picnic lunch is my absolute FAVOURITE. I have one more or less every day! I just enjoy having lots of different things to pick at and nibble on. Great ideas!


  3. A picnic lunch - what a brilliant idea! I really need to try this was my 6 year old - lunch times in lockdown have been tough! xxx

  4. These are such great lunch ideas for toddlers!

  5. I know theses are supposed to be for toddlers but I feel like turning these into adult sized lunches and making them for myself! Such an amazing blog post, I can’t wait to read more!

  6. At the point when we enjoy too many take-out pizzas or burgers and chips, we in the long run feel it around our waistline. 먹튀검증업체

  7. Your toddler is eager. Guidance: Carry something to eat in your pack each time you go out with your kid.

Birth Story

Harry's birth story seemed like a fitting first post on here. Bear with me because it was written months ago. More posts to follow ever...
