Healthy Snacks For Your 2 Year Olds

We know how difficult it can be to get your toddler to finish up their meal. What makes it even more tough is that kids seem to get hungry every couple of hours! This is why we always have healthy, delicious snacks lying around ready for our toddler’s hungry tummies when they want them.

kids eating fruitsMy toddler absolutely loves this simple snack of butternut squash mac&cheese. It is really easy to make and you will forget about ever making mac&cheese from a box again. Those pre-made stuff is nasty and full of unnecessary salt and stabilizers that is not good for your child. Butternut squash is loaded with fiber, folate and vitamin A – all great stuff for you and your kids. All you need to do is blend some roasted butternut squash together with some garlic, onion and thyme. Once blended, cook this sauce on the saucepan for 10 minutes. Stir in some macaroni and you’re all done!

The next snack that I want to recommend to all the mothers out there is my famous roasted root vegetable snack! You just need around 2 to 3 types of root vegetables such as carrots, turnips and sweet potato. Chop them up and lay them down on some baking paper. Pour some organic olive oil on them and sprinkle herbs generously. They then get baked in the oven for 30 minutes on high heat.
