Holiday Treats for Tots!

Ofcourse we want to be the best parent possible, and what could be better than laying down the basics for a life of healthy eating?

"Eat your vegetables!" This classic line is one that most parents are familiar with. Learn hassle free techniques for expanding the picky eater's palette.

Finding foods that are healthy, and that young ones will eat, can be tricky.
Young children are often very particular when it comes to eating certain foods. Parents must think of ways to help their little ones overcome this. Yay! (^_*)

And here is Holiday season! I smell it and it's just around the corner! My kids smell it too! Do you??
The smell of freshly baked cookies and the holidays seem to go together.
Part of the fun of the holiday season is spending time with your family, and there’s no better way to spend quality time with your loved ones than baking up some tasty holiday treats together! These recipe is so fun, easy, and super fun for kids!

NOTES: Can also add corn kernels, and raisins to add sweets on the tarts.

* Find a small, safe task that will involve the child in the meal preparation. If she has had a hand in the preparation, she might be more inclined to eat it.
Like me, I let my kids plant and harvest vegetables in our garden/backyard.

* Holiday seasoon is colorful, right! Kids loves colorful and sweet foods!
To make it healthy, instead of sweets used colorful vegetables and chopped it in small sizes or in different shapes.
Then add raisins and corn kernels to add sweetness!

* For the milk, can use the powdered milk of our little tots as best substitute!

* Pwede ring pang baon sa school! At pang give away di ba??^^
