7 Toddler-Approved Eats Just In Time for Thanksgiving

Prepping Thanksgiving dinner is tough enough, but with a toddler to think of, this meal sounds like more of marathon cook-fest than a meal to be thankful for. You want your tot to enjoy a well-balanced, healthy meal loaded with all the table-toppers you love (like broccoli, stuffing, turkey, mashed potatoes and bread — oh, sweet, delicious, warm, happiness-inducing bread) but you don’t have a clue where to start and which recipe to try, right? Before you give up and reach for the microwavable chicken fingers, have a little faith, okay?

A nutritional meal featuring all the Turkey Day treats you love is possible — and even better: It’s easy to do (swear!). Just play to your toddler’s strengths. If he loves finger foods, change up your stuffing recipe so he can eat it with his hands and if you’re worried he’ll fill up on bread, opt for mini-biscuits instead. And if you’re really stumped on where to start, try one of these seven to-dine-for recipes:

Turkey-Themed Veggie Cups

While everyone else is digging in on brie, crackers and bacon-wrapped scallops, give your tot his own personalized turkey dipping plate. It's healthy and he'll love that it's just for him.
