Coming up with a healthy one-day recipe for your toddler can be overwhelming. Follow this easy and simple recipe you can try today for your one-year-old.
When your daughter or son is at least two years old, you can try these recipes. Although you can already try them since your kids are between 18-24 months.
When they are older than two years old, it’s perfectly fine.
On a daily basis, you can come up with 3 main meals and 1 healthy dessert.
We all know that every kid loves dessert.
But for your beloved kid, I recommend you to create a healthier version.
However, I receive a lot of questions about how often parents should give milk to their kids.
I recommend you follow this guide below.
You can give your son or daughter 15oz milk 2 times a day, and then another 250ml during the day.
Lastly, you can give another 200ml at night. For water, allow them to have it whenever they want.

It’s Time for Tasty Dinner
When it’s dinner time, you can get creative in the kitchen and cook something a little special for your toddler.
In this case, I recommend you to make mini frittatas.
Ingredients for the dough
- 2 cups flour
- 1-1/4 teaspoons salt
- 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 1/3 cup ice water
Ingredients for the filling
- 6 eggs
- 6 slices of bacon
- 1 handful of green onions
- cheddar cheese
- splash of milk
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Grate the cheese, then chop the green onions, and bacon.
- Scramble the eggs in a bowl with a splash of milk.
- Cook the bacon in a skillet, then remove the excess oil with paper towels.
- Put the flour, salt, and oil into a blender and pulse until it becomes crumbly. Slowly add the water until it forms a soft ball of dough.
- Once the bacon is drained, add it to the egg mixture, along with the green onions and cheese.
Tips: Depending on your ingredients, you can season with salt and pepper if you would like.
- Take a hunk of the dough, and press it into the cup of a muffin pan until it covers the whole cup.
- Pour the egg mixture into the cups, being careful not to overfill. (They puff up in the oven)
- Bake for 20-25 minutes, until the centers are set and the crust is starting to brown slightly.
- It looks like there are a lot of green onions, but it is only because they float to the top, and the bacon sinks to the bottom.
- Serve and have a special dinner with your toddler!
Now, The Dessert
For snacking time, it is better if you keep it simple and easy And nothing is tastier and easier than a chocolate avocado pudding.
Avocados are a great source for fats, vitamin C, folate, potassium, vitamin K, vitamin E, and other 20 vitamins and minerals.

- 1 1/2 tbsp cacao powder
- 2 tbsp raw honey
- Cut avocado in half, remove the pit and scrape all the flesh out using a spoon.
- Put avocado, milk, cocoa, and honey into a food processor and blend until smooth.
Planning meals for your one year old can be tricky. At this age, your toddler will understand the taste of foods and start to have his or her preferences.
They may also be picky eaters and you have to get creative to make sure that your toddler eats enough healthy foods.
Fruits are good choices for your kids and knowing how to turn them into a delicious meal is your great weapon as a mother.
