Apple-Carrot Muffins

Apple-Carrot Muffins

These muffins are healthy and delicious! They’re baby-approved, little kid-approved, and I kinda love them myself. This is a great recipe for baby led weaning, finger foods, breakfast, toddler snacks, or after-school snacks. And bonus, they thaw nicely if you want to freeze some.

Sweet Potatoes and Carrots

Sweet Potatoes and Carrots

My son loves sweet potatoes, but he’s never been much of a carrot fan (I don’t blame him–they’re definitely not my favorite either!). I used to roast sweet potatoes for him all the time, but then one day it occurred to me that I could probably sneak some carrots past him by using the same […]
