Toddler Finger Foods

Toddler Finger Foods need not be elaborate and hard to put together. The goal is to allow your toddler some feeding independence while getting enough nutrients each day.

When I was a first time mom I used to look at recipe books specifically designed for toddler's taste buds. These were sensory delights, not only promising good balanced meals, but also that they were guaranteed to make even the most reluctant eater ask for more.

Did it work? Nope! I used to try everything to get my toddler to eat, making things in miniature, sneaking food into her while she played and other things, but to no avail. I was determined not to make food a battle ground so we left off the trickery and the elaborate meals and eventually she started to eat well.

There were some toddler foods that did us well through those days when it seemed that she was eating nothing and here are those simple easy recipes for you to try.
