Today, Sylas (he is 16 months old) has had
Cheerios, apple slice and soy milk
Leftovers. Tofu, cabbage, bean sprouts... something else... lol. It was lettuce wraps but he can't eat lettuce (he just chews and chews it). We served it with brown rice
He had a slice of apple and a bit of vegan homemade banana bread.
For dinner, he had stir fry that had tons of stuff in it. we cleaned out our fridge and dumped a whole slew of veggies in it with rice noodles. He wasn't a huge fan of any of it besides the noodles. He also had some soy milk.


ETA - I forgot to include, we're extended nursing so he does get a lot of nutrients from me.

My son is 2 years old:
waffles
peanut butter and jelly sandwich (he ate his and then ate half of mine)
dried cherries
crackers and hummus
veggie sausage
applesauce
some french fries
and he hasn't had dinner yet (husband is cooking dinner and I don't know what it is)

And for exercise: he rode his bike around the block this morning, then we jumped on trampolines for an hour (toddler time at the trampoline place), later in the day we went to the park

My sister's omni grandchildren are coming to visit, so I'm lurking on this thread. Great ideas for food!! I always have tons of fresh and frozen fruit, and I got a list of the kids' favorites from their mom and am going to veganize them. Nothing major, chikken nuggets, fries, breakfast cereal, hot dogz, etc. The kids are 3 years, and 18 months. I was a little concerned about food allergies with the younger (just her age, she has no allergies yet), but she was on soy formula and tolerates wheat, and I have a list of fruits, veggies, and grains she has tried. She apparently loves Blue Diamond vanilla milk. smiley.gif

Any tips? It has been awhile for me having toddlers in the house! shocked.gif Their parents will be here, but my sister and I are taking care of the kids while their parents vacation.

I probably should have started a new thread, I am not trying to hijack. I'm always hesitant to start new threads. blush.gif

I really love this thread.  I am trying to convert to veganism and take my 3 year old son with me, and it has been an uphill battle so far, but thanks to threads like this it is getting easier. 

 

Reading what your kids eat, it is no wonder vegan kids are healthier!  Even if omni kids got as much veggies and fruit and you'alls kids do every day they would be souper healthy too!

 

B: Chex cereal and chocolate almond milk (it was all we had time for as we rushed out the door!)

L: I packed a lunch,  he had soy cheese, grapes, carrot sticks, my homemade vegan chocolate chip cookies (made with whole wheat flour and flax seed), and a juice, he wouldn't eat anything else i packed for him.

D: peanut butter pitas with strawberries (he refused the banana).

 

He didn't eat as well as he normally did, but he ate a lot yesterday:

 

B: bowl of cereal with blueberries

L: noodles with vegetarian refried beans, a fruit and a veggie (daycare lunch, they said he ate all of his noodles and most of his beans! I was proud)

D: sauteed tofu with basil sundried tomato pesto over linquini (he ate gobs of this stuff, especially the tofu!)

It is just as it sounds! I take two pieces of bread and smear almond butter on each one. I sprinkle a handful of carob chips, (or if I don't have them on hand, Wegmans brand semi sweet chocolate chips are vegan), and then press the two slices together to make a sandwich. Then I put some EB butter in a pan on the stovetop and grill it like grilled cheese.

My kids love it and call it a cookie sandwich. I like it because it is a ton of protein, calories, and unsaturated fat for them to help with weight gain. Because of their diet- its actually quite difficult to get them to have enough calories and fat that they need.

 

I am all sorts of creative with the almond butter and peanut butter. It is a staple here. I make them both home made every week with my food processor, because I don't like all the additives in the store bought ones. You can even make homemade peanut butter and add carob chips while processing to make chocolate peanut butter.

 

Some sandwiches my kids also like are peanut butter and mash banana, almond butter and shredded coconut, peanut butter and sliced strawberries. They dip apples and pear slices into peanut butter, and I make "cracker sandwiches" with Club crackers and almond butter.

I am a nanny for an almost-4-year-old boy, who I believe has texture aversions and sensory issues. If he takes a bite of something like rice, he stores it in his cheek and chews it for EVER before he swallows it.
His mom also PILES food on his plate, and he ends up barely eating. I think that overwhelms him. I've been giving him small portions and he will finish it and ask for more. I've found he eats more this way.

I have been documenting what I feed him each day, to make sure he is getting a balanced diet. I try to feed him a lot of veg*n meals, although he eats meat. Obviously I will only post the veg*n meals!

(mom made him breakfast, not veg*n)
S: pear, seaweed
L: grilled cheese, apple with peanut butter
S: crackers and hummus
D: spaghetti (I put grated zucchini in the sauce and he had no idea), garlic bread, carrots (which he stored in his cheek) and he tried a bite of zucchini, woo hoo!

He drinks water throughout the day, and cow's milk with each meal.

My son does this. He has been in OT for sensory issues for the past year and a half. He refuses most foods he is unfamiliar with. I try to make him familiar with food by offering him a small amount (one or two pieces of eggplant for example) in the corner of his plate. I have him watch me, his father, and sister eat it. Because he has anxiety and control issues too I don't force it, I just let it sit there and let him observe. I will ask my daughter if she likes the eggplant, and have a conversation about it with her and let him listen.

He hated his multivitamin and would cheek them all the time. I didn't discover he was doing this for months, until I discovered a small cavity in his lower right second molar- where he was cheeking it. (they have sugar in them!) We did step in and start using some behavioral techniques to get him to chew his food and vitamins instead of cheeking them. Mainly what seems to work is holding off on the next activity or thing until he has chewed his food. I usually have to sit and supervise.

His mom said he used to store everything he ate in his cheeks, like a chipmunk. They had a rule that he couldn't get up from the table until he swallowed it.
Now he rarely does it, and only if he doesn't like the texture. His mom has never said anything about texture aversion, so I don't think she has really thought about it.
I found myself getting frustrated- telling him to JUST SWALLOW IT! but he really can't help it...he will just chew and chew forever. Sometimes I give him more milk or a bite of applesauce to help it go down. Poor peanut.

He doesn't seem to have anxiety or control issues, so we have a rule where he has to try one bite- if he likes it, I will give him more. (He rarely wants more, ha.) We read the book Green Eggs And Ham recently and now he always talks about how the guy didn't want to try the green eggs and ham, but when he finally did he discovered he liked it. Whatever works!

My sister used to do the same thing with her multivitamin! She would cheek it before breakfast and not eat anything until it had dissolved.

My 3 year old is regularly eating oatmeal, cereal, bagel or waffles and fruit for breakfast, peanut butter and jelly or tofurky deli slice sandwich or bean burrito for lunch and lentil or pea soup or pasta or beans for dinner these days. Snacks are crackers, fruit, cookies, applesauce, pretzels, vegan cheese, or juice. He's drinking soymilk at breakfast and water at most other times. He's getting a chewable multivitamin daily. He's still, as always, growing and developing normally. He's tall, strong, coordinated, talkative, sensitive, and silly.
