I am looking for some different types of dinners I can give my 2 year old daughter. I want to provide her with more variety of foods. Thanks for any ideas.

    I make my son cheese quesadillas with salsa and freeze them ( 30 sec in the microwave and its a perfect snack, one tortilla folded in half gets cut into fours).

    Homeade bean and cheese burritos ( cut each burrito in half and freeze and cook for 30-40sec).

    I make turkey meatballs.

    I use diced ham sautéed in pineapple and rice.

    I make veggie soups. Beef broth and whatever veg he will eat.

    I make a homeade Mac and cheese with ham and bread crumbs.

    He loves baked potatoes with cheese and steak sauce.

    I make pizza with black olives and green peppers with at least 2 types of cheese.

    He's 13 months old and loves lots of foods. Those listed are just the easiest to make. ;)

    My 2 year old eats whatever we are eating so for breakfast this morning he had oatmeal, apple slices and sausage. For lunch we are going to have veggie burritos, and for dinner rice and beans.

    My kids love cheese or beef enchiladas with rice & beans, cheese quesadillas with a fruit, seasoned chicken breast with veggies & a fruit, spaghetti with a fruit, sausage with macaroni and corn on the cob, chicken fajita tacos with fideo (mexican soup), meatloaf with mashed potatoes... whatever I am making for dinner for our little family. :)

    Mine just eats whatever we eat for dinner. She gets a wide variety of foods and tastes that way (and she has a higher tolerance for spicy foods than I do so I don't even need to worry about that)... plus I'm not going to spend the next 18 years cooking a bunch of different meals for everyone! My mom fell into that trap with a couple of my pickier siblings and it sucked.

    My 2 year old eats whatever we eat. I don't make special things for her.
