Toddler-Friendly meals??

Does anyone have any good recipes for toddlers? My children aren't that picky, but they get bored with foods very quickly. I'm looking to add a little variety to their mealtimes. But my daughter is allergic to nuts so I can't do anything with any kind of nuts. Care to share any recipes or snack ideas that you fix for your children? Thanks!!

You could try stir fries, but use an oil she's not allergic to such as olive oil. I've also done cheese rolls with meats. Oh, and my kids love baked cabbage with cheese.

spaghetti and meat balls, home made french friens and burgers, sheaperds pie (sneak veggies into that), if you want them to eat vegggies like carrots, you can give it to them, raw or any veggie really with ranch dipping, make things that look bad fun, they'll eat it. you wouldn't believe the things i get my nephews to eat, just "sugar coat" things.

Kids love hand foods most of the time. slice fruit and then cut into shapes with cookie cutters, do the same with bread then add organic jam, a very small portion of jam will change the plain bread into a treat. Add honey and fruit to yogurt, I use Greek yogurt because it has a richer texture. Slice cheese and then use your cookie cuter again, Depending on the age of the child they can use the cookie cutter on cheese and bread.

My nephew loves salsa, and will eat it with anything. He is 3 but the first time we realized it was when he had just turned 2. we were at a resturant and he snuck it towards him until he was the only one who could reach it. It it easy to make at home, tomato, onion, pepper, garlic. and healthy.
