As Aiden started eating solid foods, I quickly learned that making sure she had a balanced diet and was interested in the food she was eating was more challenging than I expected. And just because she liked something yesterday, didn’t mean she was going to like it today – meaning, I was going to have to start getting creative. So, every Sunday, I try to sit down and create a weekly menu for Aiden that is filled with tons of different options. For me, writing out a menu, planning and cooking (some of the things) ahead helps when our days are a little crazier than expected.
Below is a menu for the upcoming week!
