Back to School!

Everyone is getting ready for their first week back to school.  Even though I am not technically going back, I thought I could post a few kid-friendly recipes that are sure to be a hit with your little ones.  Since Ryan started rebelling against purees about a month ago, we have started to get more creative with his meal options.  One of his (and Molly’s) favorites is Sweet Potato Tots.  They are literally two ingredients: sweet potatoes, and parmesan cheese. You could certainly add salt, pepper, or anything else, but we keep it as simple as possible for both baby and dog.  As you can see below, Molly finds one way or another to get whatever it is that Ryan is eating.
