Inspired by Dawn at The Paleo Baby, Oliver’s Eats will be an occasional (perhaps weekly?) feature where I post some photos and a description of a meal — or day’s worth of meals — so you can get an idea of how Paleo eating works in the context of feeding a baby or toddler.
Left to right:
1. “Crepe” made from two jumbo sized eggs mixed with 2 tablespoons of whipping cream (strictly speaking, not Paleo, but an easy way to add extra fat), fried in grass-fed butter and cut into bite-sized pieces.
2. Multi-coloured heirloom cherry tomatoes, quartered. Cucumber sticks.
3. Cherries pieces, kiwi slices and watermelon.
Realistically, Oliver will eat most or all of the egg. He will sample all of the veggies and fruits, but will ultimately consume half (or less) of what he is given. Veggies and fruits tend to land on the floor with much greater frequency than proteins, so I pack extras to account for that. With the above selection, he will typically eat one or two cucumber sticks, one third to one half of the tomato pieces, a few pieces of cherry, one or two pieces of kiwi and all of the watermelon.
