So Easy Toddler Food is a book for people like me. There are tips for developing healthy eating habits, and all of the recipes are healthy and super easy to make. Each recipe also has the USDA nutrition facts box, so you know exactly how many calories, how much protein, and how many vitamins are in the food that you're making. I wish all recipe books came with this feature!!
Some of my favorite recipes are the "Sunshine Wrap" (peanut butter, apple, carrots, and raisins on a tortilla), Tuna Casserole, Shroomy Stroganoff, and Broccoli & Rice Casserole. I'm going to make it my goal to try every recipe and see how the kids like it. That way we'll make sure to get some new and easy-to-make favorites that the whole family will enjoy.
Fresh Baby also sent us two Kid's Portion Plates for the twins, and we love them! Now we know exactly how much food to give them, and it also tells us how much of each food they should be eating. About half of their meal should be fruits and veggies, a quarter should be grains and another quarter should be protein. I think we do pretty well on this, although there's always room for improvement...(fish sticks and french fries, anyone?)
Cost: You can buy So Easy Toddler Food with the Portion Plate for $9.98 from Amazon.com. Both the book and plate come in English and Spanish versions.
Overall: We give So Easy Toddler Food a 9.5/10!
