L for lion – Toddler weekly alphabet activity

Posted by

Feeding a toddler is one of the dilemmas of being a mom. I’m not sure how many can relate, but my 3-year-old son is always “mapili” when it comes to fruits and vegetables. Well, honestly, I used to be one when I was his age. hehe.

But as early as possible, I would like him to have the habit of eating healthy foods.

Last week was our L week activity, and just in time, I prepared a fun yet healthy snack for him.

I used bread, cut into round shape, spread some peanut butter, and surrounded it with oranges. Topped it with some banana, raisins, and strawberry. And of course cheese. He loves cheese!

It’s easy and simple.

Here’s a short video of our L week in addition to our A-Z activities. πŸ™‚



  1. Wow! I love your alphabet week learning idea. And oh boy your video is amazing. Bringing in creativity on lesson time is a good way to teach kids and you certainly nailed it. I wonder if you could teach me how to do such a video. (macy santos)

    1. This is a neat trick to use to teach my own son when he’s a bit older! Been learning different techniques to see what can be done to advocate and instill more fun and educated play with my YΓ±igo. Thanks for this!

      1. That dish looks utterly scupumtiors ! It's one of my fave dish though haven't got the nerve to make it πŸ˜› πŸ˜€ I just go to Toastbox if I got some hankering for that tasty dish πŸ˜€

  2. Oh I remember that stage with my two kids. Effort talaga sa creativity! But it was less of a challenge when they started going to school since they were taught about the different food groups. That’s when they began eating most of what I serve them.

  3. I have one little boy who will love a food one day and hate it the next. Really really picky! I love how you presented your kidlet’s foodβ€” especially in a manner that matches your lesson for the day. It’s worth a shot!

  4. My daughter’s 2 and she’s mapili with food rin. She doesn’t eat menudo, mechado, and any other ulam that’s color orange or maybe the sarsa, not sure, but she doesn’t. πŸ™ She eats spaghetti though. Anyway, I love the way you prepared your son’s food! Ang galing! Effort! Will try it with my little girl, sana gumana hehe πŸ™‚

  5. So creative! I remember when I had my eldest and sha pa lang ang baby ko and I was a full time SAHM, ganito rin ako hihi. I miss those days. Now, I seem to be struggling in this area. I just mostly get the job done na lang and it can get so frustrating. Good job mommy!

  6. Hihihi. It is so cute. Gives my an idea how to make food a little enticing to my son. Though I doubt he will appreciate it as he is only 17months old. But it will definitively make his mama happy. So cute din the a-z activities.

  7. I also have a very picky eater and up to now {he’s already 7} I am still having trouble feeding him. He mostly loves eating chicken and beef but I would really like for him to try more veggies, as well as fruits, too!

  8. What you’re doing is good, sis! Introducing your little one to fruits and veggies, little by little, will help him get accustomed to the taste. And yes, it really takes a lot of creativity to make our kids do what we want them to do. Lol!

  9. Oh my, what a cutie! πŸ™‚ While I don’t have a problem with letting my eldest eat fruits, I have a big problem with my youngest. Ugh! I wonder if presenting it like this will help. πŸ™‚

  10. So cute! I’ve never really had to make that much of an effort in preparing food for my kids coz they’re not very picky eaters. But things like this would really make eating more fun. πŸ™‚

  11. Hello sis, like you one of my bureden to my 2 yr old son ay ang pag papakain sa kanya, huhuhu! Every meal almost 1 hour talaga kami matatapos, lahat ng tricks and efforts ginagawa ko everyday but it’s okay. But this one is really a big help and motivate to our son to eat.
