    Default ideas for toddler using spoon

    Hi,

    I am after some ideas for foods that my 14 mo can eat with his own spoon... He is great with yoghurt and mushy weet-bix and mashed veggies, I made some home made jelly the other day and he also handled that well... what else can I try?

    Thanks

    I used to give ds anything we ate for dinner just put it on the blender. If it wasn't mushy enough I added Apple sauce or just a bit of gravy depending on the meal.

    During the day if make fruit smoothies I would make his thick enough to eat not drink.

    Hope this helps.

    Rice is great for teaching them to use a spoon, I mix our butter chicken curry with rice so the sauce binds it all together , the same with bolognaise but use Risoni or abc pasta instead of spaghetti or he started using a loaded spoon as a baby with my quinoa porridge

    Cereal with just enough milk to wet it but not enough for them to play with/splash

    I second the risoni pasta - that way you can make any other style of sauce to go with it.

    Hi ilovehats,
    i've recently discovered quinoa and DD is loving it! I make a breakfast with it, just add plain yoghurt mashed banana and a bit of cinnamon and heat up...i eat it too with nuts and honey for me..YUMMY! You can use it in stirfries adding whatever you want and i find it sticks well to the spoon so doesn't get slopped around as much.
