Toddler Snacks Banana Pine Nuts Kale Chips Papaya
Snacks Part 2 – From Papaya to Pine Nuts

We discovered some new bit hits this week, thanks to some good tips from moms Emma (of Strolling the City in Heels) and Christine (Creator of the amazing skin care line called Lila Bare).

Here’s what’s on the board:

  • Kale Chips
  • Shaved almonds
  • Papaya
  • Blueberries
  • Banana
  • Raspberry
  • Dragon fruit
  • Pine Nuts
  • Pumpkin Seeds

Yesterday Raquel flexed her pincers on some pine nuts and shaved almonds – she really liked them a lot, and I’m thrilled about that. Pine nuts are super high in protein, iron, fibre and ‘good fats.’ Almonds are all of that plus calcium too. Good stuff! It’s inspiring me to get the grinder out and incorporate these flavours into some other snack recipes. (Stay tuned). These also might be good options for picky or textural eaters because they are crunchy rather than slippery.

We also tried the cute black and white speckled Dragon Fruit which is actually very mild and sweet!
