Lunch Ideas

Here are a few of my daughter’s favorite lunch combos that work great for a picky toddler with a sensitive tummy:

(Check out my post Food You Can Buy (GF, EF, NF, DF, SF) for pictures of some of the things listed here that I buy.)

 

LUNCH 1:

1/2 large link of Aidell’s chicken & apple sausage (or at least 4 mini links)

1 small slice of zucchini bread w/ pumpkin (cooked & mashed), mashed banana, and avocado mixed together and spread on top

A few peeled cucumber slices

 

LUNCH 2:

2 slices of Lunch meat broken in pieces

1-2 southwest hash brown patties (or kale tater tots)

Zucchini and cherry tomato slices mixed with avocado & Daiya ranch dressing

 

LUNCH 3:

Zucchini slices topped w/  homemade hummus (I use cooked chickpeas, sweet peas, and navy beans blended with canola oil, garlic, and herbs)

Turkey meat in broth (my daughter LOVES pieces of turkey in the broth with some Tony Chacheres seasoning. I just cook a turkey breast in the crock pot and then give her small pieces in a bowl with the broth and Tony’s)

1/2 slice homemade GF, SF, EF, DF, NF bread (recipe to come) spread with olive oil, sprinkled w/ Italian seasoning and garlic powder, toasted

 

LUNCH 4:

Turkey wrap

About a handful of quinoa and plantain chips mixed

A couple tablespoons or so of sliced green or black olives

 

LUNCH 5:

Fried burrito (My daughter’s favorite: heat a corn tortilla in a hot skillet for 30 seconds each side until it becomes soft, top with allergy friendly refried beans, avocado, chopped spinach, Daiya ranch dressing, fold like a burrito and fry in avocado oil on each side until crispy and browned)

Olive slices

honey roasted carrots

 

LUNCH 6:

Elk meatballs

Raw broccoli (my daughter loves it raw)

Cucumbers

Sweet potato chips

Crispy potatoes (peeled, chopped red potato tossed in avocado oil with salt and pepper, and baked until crispy)

 

Lunches are hard for me, because I’m always in a hurry, so some of these are thrown together things that my daughter just happened to really like! But these examples are basically the type of lunches that we do. My daughter’s favorite, by far, is the fried wraps. It doesn’t matter what I put in them, she loves them (especially dipped in her ranch 🙂
