5 days of finger foods - easy lunch ideas

Posted 03/08/2015 in Recipe Collections

Lunch at our house is almost always hassle-free, as we tend to just throw together a plate of finger foods. It's easy, healthy, and takes minutes to prepare. 

I know it can be easy to fall into a rut when it comes to toddler lunches - there have been many times where I have found myself dishing up the same old thing for my two year old again and again. But lately we have been on a roll, and he has also been more willing to try a few different foods.

If you are finding it hard to come up with healthy lunch ideas for your toddlers, or simply don't have the time to prepare a big lunch, then finger food lunches could be for you! Head down to the supermarket and pick out a handful of whole food ingredients. Think fresh fruits, dried fruits, cheeses, nuts, etc. Save leftover meats in the fridge or freezer to add to lunches. Keeping these sorts of foods stocked up allows you to plate up a healthy, nutritious lunch for your toddler in no time at all!
