Toddler Tuesday- Rainbow Pasta Salad

In an attempt to cater to those of you who have very young children with type 1 diabetes, I have created a “Toddler Tuesday” series. Each Tuesday, I pick one of my toddler daughter’s meals from the week to share with you- the Toddler Tuesday Meal. These featured meals are meant to give you inspiration of new things to make and try for those of you with younger kids. Plus, all featured meals include the carbohydrate breakdown of each food item, so that you can easily add/remove items to accommodate your child’s likes/dislikes.


Here’s this week’s Toddler Tuesday meal, assembled inside an innobaby container:

Rainbow Pasta Salad (all natural, no food coloring, rainbow farfalline pasta with olive oil, grape tomatoes, Parmesan cheese, fresh basil, and salt & pepper)= 10 carbs

Fresh Fruit (strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, grapes & mandarin oranges)= 3 carbs

Garlic Asiago Brazi Bites= 5 carbs

Green Pepper Slices with Ranch Dressing= 1 carb

1/2 Hard-Boiled Egg= 0.5 carbs

Meal Total=19.5 carbs
