Recipe for Not Wasting Toddler Food
Sometimes mealtimes with kids means a lot of half eaten food. We decided to see what leftovers would freeze into “snack drops”. We took half eaten food pouches and leftover veggies that we blended. We placed them on wax paper (just like if you were making your own yogurt drops) and froze them for a few hours.
They were a big hit (Honestly some vegetables were more of a hit than others, but the fruit went over really well).* We also made some plain yogurt drops to introduce our toddlers to a less sugary yogurt. Somehow the small, frozen drops went over better than just giving them regular plain yogurt. Perhaps a consistency issue? Who knows, but it worked!
Try it and let us know what foods your toddlers like better as a frozen drops.
*These snacks are not portable since they do melt! Leave room for expanding. If you place them too close together they end up melting together. Our Kolcraft kid didn’t mind it because we told her it was a dinosaur. (Use your imagination! )
