Recipes to Fool Your Toddler into Eating Healthy

banana pancakes for kids

In my last blog post I wrote of all the efforts I developed to feed my “picky” 22-month-old. I thought it would be helpful if I shared some of the recipes that I have adapted to provide my little guy with a healthy meal that meets his approval! These recipes work on husbands too. 🙂 Banana Pancakes This recipe is super easy and very quick. It is loaded with protein and also provides a serving or two of fruit! I don’t serve these pancakes with syrup because they taste wonderful on their own, but if your little one wants to…

I am a big fan of lactation cookies. Okay let’s be honest, I am a HUGE fan of ALL cookies. And now that we are approaching the holidays, I wanted to give my usual lactation cookie recipe a fun, holiday twist this year. Because when I think about Christmas cookies, I dream about “kitchen sink cookies.” (A delicious cookie with a little bit of everything!) Check out my holiday adaptation below. I’m thinking I won’t be making the same old, tired lactation cookies ever again… Ingredients: 2 cups of butter 1-1/4 cups of brown sugar 1 egg 1 tablespoon of vanilla…

Toddler Approved: Summer Inspired Recipes

Wednesday, June 22, 2016 By Sarah Ring

There are SO many things to absolutely love about summer, but cooking over a hot stove in a warm kitchen is just simply NOT one of them. I’m making meal time with the littlest members of our family easy this season by using fresh ingredients that require minimal cook time. In an effort to do just that, I’ve rounded up some deliciously cool recipes that are not only simple, but have also been toddler tested and approved! Let’s start with the most important meal of the day: breakfast! Breakfast A parfait is about as close as you can get to having…

(Almost) Summer Sweets and Treats: Homemade Cake Batter Popsicles

Thursday, May 12, 2016 By Jessica Tomes

Adapted from mmmpopsicle.blogspot.com. So I am just going to come clean with you guys and admit that I have a major sweet tooth. Unfortunately (for my waistline), it only gets worse when I am pregnant. Conventional wisdom says you crave sweets when it’s a girl, and salty when it’s a boy. From my own personal experience, this has proven true. (Although I’ve also craved pizza and booze with this baby, so I am not sure what that means. Yikes!) With baby number one, it was always cupcakes. Eventually my husband stopped buying them for me from the grocery store (it became a bit of a…

Easter Treats and Sweets: Greek Yogurt Fruit Pizza

Thursday, March 17, 2016 By Jessica Tomes

 Adapted from sallysbakingaddiction.com Easter is upon us, ladies! Which unfortunately (for many of us) means more candy, cookies, cupcakes, and desserts full of empty calories. As if our waistlines needed any more of that — but you can’t very well let your kiddos eat all that junk themselves, now can you? That would just be cruel. 😉 So when planning my Easter Brunch menu this year (because there is nothing more quintessentially Southern than an Easter brunch), I decided to mix things up a bit. I’m making this (healthier) Fruit Pizza with a twist! Here’s how you can make it. We’ll start by making the…
