Toddlers love to eat. In fact they have a habit of putting everything they come across into their mouths. When it comes to food, they will try to eat everything especially what they see us eating - unfortunately what we eat is not always suitable for them. Here are a couple of quick and simple toddler finger food recipes that you can try.
Sweet Potato Sticks
This is quick and simple and kids love them simply because of the color.
Peel a bright orange sweet potato and cut into two inch sticks about half an inch thick. Microwave on high for about five minutes then allow to cool thoroughly. They can be stored for up to five days in an airtight container although serving fresh is best. You will need to experiment with your microwave to get the best consistency. You should be able to hold a stick without it collapsing in a heap of mush.
Apple Rings With Cinnamon
Peel and core a couple of red apples - the harder the apple the better. Cut into rings and dust with cinnamon (no sugar). Microwave for two minutes until a little soft but not mushy. Allow to cool then watch them disappear. Store for three days.
Pear Rings With Nutmeg
Similar to the apple rings - peel and core a couple of hard pears. Cut into rings and microwave for about a minute - sprinkle a little nutmeg (not too much) and let cool. If you get the nutmeg sprinkle just right then kids love these because of the color.
