Recently, my picky eater—the 22-month old toddler—has started to take a liking to cheese, which makes me very happy. I have started making more toddler foods for him with cheese. As he is very active and practically can’t sit still, our pediatrician told us to feed him a lot of protein, foods like cheese, meat, peanut butter, etc.

Mini Lemon Cheesecake

I experimented with this mini lemon cheesecake and he loved it. He ate one of them as soon as it was done, and asked for “more more.” Nothing makes me happier than him eating well and continues to grow.

Anyway, this mini lemon cheesecake is a recipe from my friend’s blog at Cuisine Paradise. I am sure many of you remember the cute Mickey Bento she wrote as a guest post on Rasa Malaysia. I love visiting the blog, especially for baking recipes.

These mini lemon cheesecakes are not only great for toddlers, they are great for the grown-ups, too. I just love that they are so pretty, and mini-size is always a crowd pleasure. Check out the recipe below and I hope you get to try them yourself. If you have a little picker eater at home, please share your ideas what you cook for them.

  1. I make meatballs for my toddler. Minced chicken, grated apple, finely chopped broccoli florets/French beans, grated carrot, grated cheese, panko. Shaped into mini balls then pan fry over low heat with olive oil. My kiddo loves it, even my hubby! For adults can consider adding some spices like curry powder, cumin etc for added flavor :)

      Hi Kathy, I don’t think you can because the one in the tub has air whipped into it to make it more spreadable while the cream cheese block is more thick. Your cream cheese cake may fall if you use the spreadable type just because it has too much air.

    A really really fussy and picky toddler we have here!!! Extremely difficult to get her to eat veges and for some reason cheese as well!!! Luckily she loves her fruits! And fish!!! I make pan fry John dory fillets for her about twice a week with a pinch of salt and she eats it with rice. Love all the ideas esp the meatballs by Meg will give that a try will also give your lemon cheesecake a try!!!!

      Graham crackers are a type of crunchy biscuits/cookies that made out of wheat flour and sweetened with honey. It is very common crust for American cheesecake. It can be eaten out of the box, to make smores and to make pie crust.

    I have a 20month old and she is pretty picky as well. She loves hardboiled eggs, chicken, mini pasta shapes, shitake mushrooms, baked sweet potatoes, red bean barley sweet congee…luckily, she does eat green leafy, broccoli, cauliflower. She won’t eat carrots, tomato, spaghetti sauce, zucchini, bell peppers…some days are better than others.

    Oh, she loves muffins , soft breads…I need a good, no fail carrot cake and zucchini bread recipes. I try to hide veggies in baked goodies.

    My 19-month-old is kind of picky but I think mostly because I want to cut down on the sugar, salt, and unhealthy/unnecessary grease in his food. He loves 番薯葉 and steamed egg custard. He hates meat and anything that looks messy on a plate…still trying to figure out a better and healthy way to give him his meat…

    Very good recipe :)
    How did you remove the cheesecake from the paper cups that you used? What if I use glass cups? How can I remove the cheesecake from that before serving?

    I tried baking this mini cheesecake yesterday and it turned out well. But some of the cakes sink a bit maybe is due to i used tube cream cheese and not block one. I replaced Graham with digestive biscuits as i could not find Graham at stores.

    Thank you for sharing the recipe. Next i will try brownie butter cake !! :)
