What My Twin Toddlers Eat In A Day

We started BLW (Baby Led Weaning) around 6 months old and ever since then our twins have been ” eating us out of house and home. “😆 After I stopped breastfeeding at 12 months, and solid foods became their main source of nutrition, I felt like I couldn’t keep up with them.(They LOVE to eat!!) I go to the store a few times each week, and within a few days it vanishes 😅😅 I would love to know if your toddlers feeding schedule is similar to Harlow and Myles’!

Eating Schedule :

7:30 a.m. Breakfast:

(2) Scrambled eggs with shredded cheese, and diced ham. 1 handful each of blueberries, 1 blueberry waffle each. They split one yogurt.

We switch breakfast around a couple of times during the week. (Blueberries, and Yogurt always stay the same) We substitute in French toast, peanut butter toast, pop-tarts, dry cereal, and toaster strudels for dessert.

9:30 a.m. Snack (sometimes)

They will share one banana, or crackers

10:50 a.m. Lunch:

1 handful of fruit (usually strawberries)

1/4 can of canned tomatoes, 1/2 steamed zucchini, or sweet potato fries

Split one slice of bread & butter, or peanut butter sandwich

Rotate Entrees : Mac & Cheese, Grilled Cheese & Turkey dogs, Chicken, Ranch Pasta, Garlic Cheese Pizza, Broccoli Rice Casserole, Million Dollar Spaghetti, Broccoli Cheese Rice

2:30 p.m. Snack :

Crackers, or 1 little bagged snack

4:30 p.m. Snack :

I fill both of their Munchie Mug containers on our walk, and its usually empty when we are done! They split one Plum Organics Pouch, 1 graham cracker each, and they split 1 NutriGrain bar

6:00 p.m. Dinner :

A few spoonfuls each of tomatoes

1 handful of fruit (messier fruits like watermelon)

A few spoonfuls each of cottage cheese or I give Harlow 1 cheese stick

1 container of applesauce, a few times/ week

Rotate Entrees ( I don’t usually give them what they had for lunch, if there are leftovers. I feel like they are less picky that way) : Million Dollar Spaghetti, Chicken, Bacon, Ranch Pizza, Lasagna, and lunch entrees that they didn’t have that day.

Liquids: Their milk cups are out from the time they wake up until around 9 a.m. , and then I put them back in the fridge. Then they get them right after lunch, while I get them ready for a nap. They will get them again when they are getting ready for bed. If they’re grumpy in the afternoon, or ask for their milk then I will give it to them whenever they ask. I leave their water bottles on the floor for them throughout the entire day.

Some days I wonder what other parents feed their kids. Like if mine eat a lot, or if they eat like normal for their age. 🤷🏼‍♀️ I would love to hear your feedback in the comments.😃⬇︎

  1. My twin boys totally ate so much until shortly after their first birthday and now its hit or miss on if they will clean their plates. Wish they could tell me how hungry they really are! Haha
