Potatoes & Carrots... it's Snack Time Again!

It's that time again... when your child is hungry and you are scouring the pantry and fridge looking for something (anything!) for them to eat. Your eye jumps to the processed, pre-packaged foods that we all have (puffs, cereal, crackers, granola bars, bread, etc.) wishing you thought about having something ready during the last nap. Of course, there is always fruit. That's easy, but it's always fruit. And bread. And avocado. You want something different, something healthy, easy to eat and tastes good. Here's your solution (although you'll probably have to do it at the next nap... sorry!).

Multi-colored potatoes are chopped, drizzled with a touch of olive oil and baked in a 400 degree oven for about 40 minutes until soft & buttery.

While your potatoes are baking away, take a small bag of organic baby carrots and pour them into a steamer basket. Steam the carrots for about 20 minutes, or until soft.

Allow to cool and store in the fridge until that dreaded moment when your child is hungry and you have no idea what to feed him (or her).

And of course, you could always serve with a Green Apple Baby, Green Smoothie!
