Letter A of A-Z of Food Ideas for Toddlers

Letter A of A-Z of Food Ideas for Toddlers
This is our A-Z of food ideas for toddlers! Where better to start than the letter A, and we'll be embarking on a journey through the entire alphabet. We'll be shopping together, cooking together, and, of course, eating together. 
This is a fantastic way to introduce your little ones to new foods and exciting flavours, all while learning along the way. Inspired by the Amazing Kelly from @noshandnourish / @eattherainbow_kids’ #NourishABC series.
For the letter A, we shopped for Asparagus, Apples, Almond Butter, Dried Apricots, Apricot and Coconut Bites and Almond Flakes.
We came home and made Asparagus Pastries, Apple Donuts with Almond Butter a sprinkle of Almond Flakes (+sprinkles and MnMs for fun!) and tied it all together with some Apple Raspberry Softcorn Puffs from Tiny Bellies, Dried Apricots and Apricot Bites.  Such a fun activity, and the boys loved the whole process.

Creating a letter-themed meal for kids is not just fun but also a wonderful educational opportunity. It's a creative way to engage children with their food, turning mealtime into a playful learning experience.

By focusing on a particular letter of the alphabet, you can introduce your child to new foods and expand their vocabulary.

Pro Tip: We use our Baby by Beach Plate as a lid on the bowl from our Multi-use Silicone Divider Tableware Set to shake up the Asparagus with the oil and seasoning to evenly season the Asparagus

Your kids will have so much fun shopping, cooking and eating with a Letter themed meal. So much fun, and such a great way to learn at the same time!
