We usually feed our 19 month old what we eat for breakfast/dinner- scrambled eggs, yogurt and toast, dry cereal, oatmeal, pancakes, etc. During lunch she'll have whatever is around and easy. It could be leftovers, a hot dog (quartered), ravioli, spaghetti-o's, chicken nuggets, fish sticks...whatever. The Gerber Graduates are also nice but they can get a little pricey. (I can get a can of ravioli for .69 at Aldi and it lasts 2-3 meals. Or, I can get a Graduate for .99 and it barely tides her over for a side dish.) I also give her canned veggies. Aldi (or wherever) sells canned, sliced carrots that are perfectly soft and easy to chew up. She also likes green beans, asparagus, etc. I guess I'm not too worried about her eating one semi-unhealthy meal because we, 98% of the time, have a healthy breakfast and dinner. At the end of the day, you've just gotta feed them what they'll eat. It's a battle I'd rather not have. I do not, however, make her something different for dinner unless it's something she just can't eat. If she chooses not to eat, she just doesn't eat.
