What’s In Your Pantry?

Finding foods for my kids to eat can sometimes be difficult. My son is an incredibly picky eater (the WORST!), and my daughter is not much of an explorer in the food department either. I thought it’d be fun to share with you the staples of my kids’ diets and ask you what foods your kids can’t live without.

Here are the foods that we can’t run out of:

  • cheerios
  • applesauce
  • bananas
  • eggs (scrambled)
  • yogurt
  • refried beans
  • rice
  • hot dogs
  • sweet potatoes & white potatoes (mashed)
  • chicken nuggets
  • frozen waffles
  • sandwich fixings (PB &J, or turkey & cheese)
  • canned carrots
  • canned chicken
  • vegetable juice (Darah only…Connor will only drink milk and water)
  • and of course…lots and lots of milk!

    *Greek Yogurt Plain
    *All of my organic pureed veggies and fruits in the freezer to make Deceptively Delicious meals for me and my hubby, we both are eating much healthier from this cook book.
    * Organic Canned Crushed Fire roasted tomato’s, it makes the best tomato soup ever!
    *Organic Saltines…still love them even after my morning sickness was gone
    *Sandwich fixing (all Organic) Roast beef and Provolone & Strawberry jam with reduced fat Peanut butter Jiff is a must in our house..my husband could live on this stuff
    *Frozen Organic boneless skinless chicken breast
    *Canned and pureed Organic Pumpkin and Organic Sweet Potatoes
    *Chicken/Veggie and Beef Stock- (all organic )they make great soups and add in to make healthy dinners

    OK, a little hard to get the organic stuff here — It’s probably here somewhere, but I can’t read Hebrew yet (I did see some enviro-friendly cleaning products in English though). Anyway, here are the top 10 items we can’t do without:
    1. Peanut Butter, jelly (my son could live off the stuff)
    2. Bread (both American and middle eastern flatbread)
    3. Yogurt, plain and flavored
    4. Hummus
    5. Broccoli
    6. milk
    7. eggs
    8. Cheerios
    9. lentils and rice
    10. onions and garlic

    McKenna, my son eats just about everything too, which is really nice. But these are a few of his favorites (he swears up and down that he hates onions, but he just ate them in his lentils today. I guess as long as they’re small, he doesn’t care).

    @ Sharon- Where are you at? On onions if he does not like to see them, you can grate the onion in the good and you will get the onion taste that adult love but kids do not see the onion piece’s.
    I only hope she keeps eating everything as we enter into two year old land.

    Little Bean doesn’t eat everything put in front of her, unless I dress it up with cheese or sour cream. Our top 10 is not very different then what was already mentioned, except for no eggs and meat.

    1. Cream cheese
    2. bagels
    3. Aloo Bhujia (Indian potato snack… yes and almost as bad as potato chips..tsk-tsk)
    4. yogurt
    5. rice
    6. beans
    7. Lentils
    8. peaches
    9. bananas
    10. all the berries

    @Trina — We’re in Nazareth, Israel. And thanks for the tip about grating onions into food; I’ll try it next time!
