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!

Superfood Toddler Brekkie!

This one is SO simple I cannot believe I did not think of combining these two super foods together for Trilok earlier. Sometimes the obvious is just right there staring back at me and I blissfully avoid it. Thankfully not anymore, not for these two at least.

Avocado and Eggs. Combining them is not rocket science and there could be so many different ways of doing it. I’ve picked the easiest for this quick fix breakfast recipe.
