It’s nearing lunchtime, your baby or toddler is hangry and you open the fridge and see nothing! You look for a baby food pouch and all that’s left are fruit and they ones they don’t like…let’s avoid this scenario! Here is the simplest way to prepare a quick baby toddler lunchtime meal in 3 minutes! These are a lifesaver to have on hand in the freezer when you get in the door at lunchtime! This method is much more healthier and tastier than any baby squeeze pouches and better for the environment. I always found that you can take into restaurants and they will happily will reheat up for you!
