Fresh Fruit Crumble: Instant Gratification for the hungry toddler

I think most mums will concur that there are times when your toddler is so hungry he can hardly wait for you to fix him/her a snack, and when mine gets like that I have a 5 minute window to quickly get him something to eat.

Fruit has always topped my list of snacks for him. Recently, I’ve started mixing up fresh fruit with some warm pear purée or apple sauce or date paste. All the puréed stuff I already have frozen and ready to go if and when needed. Also, now that he understands what he is eating he likes to fix himself the snack so, I just place the ingredients out and he mixes them up. Fun times for the lil chef!

This snack has been our latest favorite. He loves the fresh fruit crumble. I call it the “faux apple crumble” :) It’s super easy to make and it’s delicious!

I’ve always tried to keep juices as packed with flavour as possible. Be it with an addition of some lime juice, ginger or even a pinch of freshly ground spices (cardamom, nutmeg, cinnamon etc.). I know as T grows up, it’ll get increasingly difficult to have control over when and where he’s been given terra pack juices, but I am hoping he’ll develop a preference for mamma made natural ones over the ‘others’.

Here’s the video to the Apple, Beetroot Cinnamon juice.
