|One of my tricks|
Pampered Chef Cut and Seal - I don't know if they even still sell them.. I've had this one for at least 10 years
it cuts around the edges, then crimps them to seal in the filling.
Gavin is a little guy, little for his age. He eats pretty good and because I hope he keeps growing, I try to serve him foods that are packed with good nutrition for a 2 year old. I don't think he need any empty calories.
I am not trying to bulk him up, just feed him what he needs and is best to help him keep growing developing.
He is a big fan of fruit and yogurt. But he does not seem to eat protein foods to much at my house. Last week, I used this PC tool to make his pb on whole wheat. He smiled when he saw his cute little sandwich and ate it just about fast as little guy should.
|the crusts won't go to waste. |
Our dog usually eats some bread with his supper everynight so I just saved the cut off parts for him.
|Gavin's lunch today|
PB on whole wheat, low fat cheese and apple sauce.
He had milk, oatmeal and a banana for breakfast.
Mid morning snack was pineapple and crackers.
|He happily ate every bite of his lunch.|
|another masking tape label|
the plastic lids on PB fit any standard canning jar
With the label, if anyone else in this home finishes off the jar, they will remember to save the lid for me.
thank you Carol -for the tip about the jar lids.
anyone have any toddler feeding tips for me?
