Easy Baby Meal Ideas

It can be hard to come up with new, fun, and easy baby meal ideas!

Some of our favorite family-friendly recipes are meatloaf, turkey meatballs, or oatmeal cookie pancakes.

Here are the easy baby meal ideas that we love!

Baby Meal Ideas

Dominic is a really good eater, but even we could use some new baby meal ideas so I thought I would share what we love in hopes that you will share some ideas too!

I am going to break down these meal ideas into sections and list out what are our go to things!

We do a lot of our grocery shopping at Trader Joe’s so a lot of our favorites are things from there (see our favorites here), but you could find lots of these things at your favorite grocery store!

Note: You’ll notice that I combined lunch and dinner ideas. That’s because a lot of these things we serve Dominic for lunch and/or dinner.

We try to give Dominic what we are eating for dinner most nights so that we are not making separate meals. Sometimes our dinner will take longer to cook so it’s nice to have some easy go to baby meals we can whip up quick for him.

He also loves to feed himself so we try and have mainly foods that he can feed to himself. The foods that require our help (yogurt, applesauce, hummus, etc.), we start off feeding him and then he ends up grabbing the spoon and trying himself!
