WE EAT | Weekly Toddler Meal Plan

Happy Halloween!! 
In honor of this day's celebrations- this week's meal plan consists entirely of CANDY. 

Chocolate at breakfast - a little caffeine will do ya good.
Gummy bears, worms, spiders, and the sour variety at lunch.  Those are fruit flavored, so they count as healthy and well balanced.
Caramel Apple pops for dinner. 

Even though some of you will definitely have enough candy to feed your family for (over) a week, I won't leave you hanging.  BUT FIRST.. 
a little throwback to Halloween 2013
When Disney Princesses met the bald and the receding hairlines of my twin little bebes.  

Belle of Beauty & the Beast
 Snow White
I cannot believe this was a year ago.  I am SO excited for this year and our costumes.
We may or may not have repurposed their flower girl dresses, but I can assure you, it totally works.  
Follow me via @masseya on Instagram to see, or come back on Monday for my Halloween weekend recap.

Until then.. let the list making begin!
