Toddler Grocery Shopping List for Busy Moms

I almost hesitate to write this post because toddler’s can be such picky little people. In fact, I once read that up to 50% of toddlers are picky eaters. That means, I have a 50/50 chance of helping out a fellow toddler mom with some ideas! Still, I decided to take that chance because I know that it can be helpful to hear what other moms are feeding their little ones.

As a work at home mom, I am pretty pressed for time. So, many of the foods I buy are convenient but I do try to avoid things like warming up food in the microwave and stick to the stove or oven. 

Also, the majority of the fruit and veggies are organic. If budget is an issue (because organic is usually more expensive), I suggest prioritizing organic foods based on the dirty dozen. Also, while my son does not have any food allergies we do mix in some gluten free items, to keep the gut bloat down. Oh, and you will notice, unfortunately, we have to do a fair amount of veggie hiding!

I spend most of my days chasing my dreams... and my toddler! There really isn't time for much else but when I can, I like to squeeze in a shower and a trip to Sephora.
