There are days that I cringe when “dine-out” and “toddler” are spoken in the same sentence. Dining out with a toddler is no easy task. It is, however, a great opportunity to build skills with your toddler, and believe it or not, it can be fun and stress free. Here are a few simple tips to enjoy the dining out experience with your toddler!

CHILD FRIENDLY RESTAURANTS

It will not always be your choice where you will be having dinner. If it is your choice, try to find a child friendly restaurant (and I don’t just mean the places that have slides). There are a few things that make restaurants a little more family friendly.

If we haven’t already established this….I LOVE FALL!!! One of my absolute favorite Fall Meals is Dinner in a pumpkin! Its fun, its simple, its delicious, nutritious and…what better way to Trick Your Picky Eater than by eating dinner straight out of a pumpkin!? I know, isn’t it great!?

I make this dinner every single year on Halloween night and my family LOVES it! I am sure you are going to love it to! And those picky little eaters will gobble it right up!

The greatest thing bout this meal is, you can prepare it in advance! Halloween night gets NUTS! The costumes, the parties, the trick or treating…NUTS I tell you! SO, if you make this the night before, refrigerate it and stick it in the oven about 2-2.5 hours before dinner…voila! You got yourself a delicious meal without the craziness of prepping it on Halloween Night! Wahoo.

Healthy Homemade

Do you have one of those kids that will eat just about ANYTHING as long as it is dipped in ranch, ketchup or something equally as disgusting? Ok Fine, I love condiments just as much as the next guy…but did you know that Ranch has 140 Calories per Serving??? And a serving is only 2 Tbs! Not to mention it has 14 grams of fat and 250 mg of sodium (Hidden Valley Ranch)! So, here is a GREAT solution! This Trick Your Picky Eater-Healthy Homemade Ranch Dip only has 53 Calories per serving, 2.4 grams of fat and 170 mg of sodium! Now, this isn’t a good alternative for Dressing on a Salad…But for dipping veggies, nuggets, fries, pizza…whatever your little person likes to dip…it is PERFECT!!! And it is a much healthier alternative to ranch!
