lazy lunches / 003

We're still on breakfasts and lunches for now. I promise I'll get to some dinner ideas. But you should know that both of the kids eat what we eat for dinner. Sometimes I have to deconstruct a soup for Eli or eliminate something if it contains dairy or egg, but for the most part, whatever we're eating, they're eating.

Sprinkle waffles, a handful of blueberries and milk. Simple. Easy. I make waffles using the bisquick recipe (although I have to adjust it because of his allergies, similar to the pancake recipe I use here) and I add sprinkles to make the waffles fun and colorful!

Vanilla, cinnamon, apple oatmeal and a cup of raisins. This is basically what my kids eat for breakfast every single day. It's quick, easy and flavorful. I start feeding my babies this for breakfast around 9 months old.

For the oatmeal:
Boil 1 cup water on the stove
Add in a dash of cinnamon and a few drops of vanilla extract
Once it boils, add 1/2 cup 1-minute oatmeal
Stir, turn of heat, put lid on pot and allow to sit a minute or so (until it reaches desired thickness)
Then stir in apple sauce- this serves to both cool the oatmeal down quickly for tiny mouths and also acts as a natural sweetener.

If you don't have applesauce, you can always mash a banana to add or add small chunks of an apple that you've softened in a steam basket. And almond milk is another great way to cool it down. Isaac always insists I add raisins as well. Seriously, there are a thousand things you can add to oatmeal!

Oh and the most important part! For the older kiddos, sprinkle brown sugar on top.

What did you feed your kiddo this week? Don't forget to tag your pics on instagram with #lazylunches. You can find me on IG @jessibridges.

  1. When Issac was a baby you posted about putting cream cheese on some type of bread product...I totally borrowed that and love it! I sometimes add a little jelly on top of the cream cheese for some sweetness. My kids love it!
