Baby & Toddler Recipes using 5 Ingredients or less!
Sometimes the simplest of ingredients make the best food EVER! Like this list of baby and toddler recipes for example. Every single baby friendly recipe uses 5 ingredients and many of them even less! You see less is more, more is less or something like that. All of these recipes make super finger foods for baby led weaning and they are all great to make with kids too (if you are looking for something to do). If you make any of these tag me on Instagram or Facebook. I absolutely love to see your creations!
Whoop Happy Cooking! Aileen xoxo
