My kids are good eaters so I can give them just about anything. My 4 year old loves yogurt in any form. She will ask for it several times a day so I have to limit her to 2-3 servings a day. I usually buy plain greek yogurt and she picks from the fruit we have on hand, fresh or frozen, to add to it. Sometimes we add granola, chopped nuts, she has even added sunflower and pumpkin seeds, not my idea. Other times we make smoothies to have either as a snack or to freeze into pops. Today she picked an apple and baby carrots to go into the smoothie. I just peeled the apple and chopped everything up a little, tossed it in the blender to puree then added some plain yogurt. I am used to cooking fruits and veggies before pureeing them. We made our own baby food. But it really didn't turn out bad. If she goes to the store with me she like the little cups so I will let her get a couple that don't have high fructose corn syrup. The 17 month old is liking the yogurt now too so I go through a lot of yogurt each week.

Last week I had goat cheese and they enjoyed putting that on their strawberries, grapes, and blueberries. The 4 year old likes salads too. I usually use spinach as the "lettuce" My 4 year old actually calls spinach, lettuce. I let her pick what she wants to put on it. She likes veggies raw. If they are cooked, she is likely to turn up her nose. She doesn't like them "mushy."
There are also the old standbys of cheese quesadillas, grilled cheese, chickenless nuggets, or leftovers from last night's dinner.
yes for lunch. My grandma gave them american cheese for lunch on Tuesday and they didn't like it. She was shocked and asked me about it, I don't like it, so I don't buy it. I usually give them cheddar or string cheese.
So that's what we are eating here. And know you know we are a vegetarian, make our own baby food,cloth diapering family:)
