Toddler Recipes anyone? Help me with meatloaf!

janie | Apr 26, 2008 05:38 PM

Trying to get my very difficult nearly 3 year old to eat some meatloaf...any good recipe ideas? Was thinking to put bread crumbs, ketchup, worcestshire, egg in it, and fresh parsley, salt, pepper...--wanted to make small 1 lb meatloaves to try it out, and then if it works out, slice it up, and freeze them for servings....

my son lives on the Dr. Praeger spinach and potato pancakes....and peanut butter cracker sandwiches, and he still loves chicken noodle in the jar and won't give it up...

have tried to turn him onto many things but he rejects all of them...except he does like some Thai food from our favorite place and he will only eat it there...

I also take chicken breast and bake it with portobello mushrooms, carrots and then puree it a bit with rice, and he eats that...I use a balsamic vinager and olive oil and fresh basil when cooking it....

I tried making him an orange marmelade with portobello mushroom chicken and he rejected it, though..thought he'd like the sweetness, but he didn't..but it was delicious...

so, I'm trying to come up with recipes that I can prepare ahead and then make little packages to freeze, so anyone can just take it out and reheat it for him...

the kid hates pizza, is afraid of pasta, hates anything with cheese, macaroni and cheese is a no go---

he loves garlic rolls, pretzels, coconut ice cream, and trader joes soy meatballs, and yogurt.

he also likes grapefruit, strawberries, grapes, and bananas...

Thanks for any advice!!!

so, please help with any good irrestible meatloaf recipes....
