We had a blast at the apple orchard last weekend. I used most of the apples while baking a butter crust apple pie, but saved a few apples for Mya and I to enjoy during snack time. I sliced the apples very thin and smeared some fresh almond butter on each one. For Mya’s slices, I cut into bite-size for her to pick up and chew eaiser. She has just 6 teeth in right now, and used all 6 for munching up food. This snack is great for at home. It can get a bit messy with the almond butter. Mya loved it so much, she had it all over her face and was licking her fingers. We enjoy introducing her to new flavors and seasonal combinations of food regularly.
Chilled Organic Carrot Sticks
- 7-8 organic Carrots
- Filtered water
Wash and peel carrots. Chop ends of carrots. Slice in half for older kids and leave whole for younger tots as a teething treat.
A great cold treat for those hot days at the beach or in the stroller. I love to put these carrot sticks in a jar or glass of water for those last minute snack needs. This is also a great go-to healthy snack for older kids to help themselves to. *Be sure to always supervise kids with this snack.
This past weekend we visited a u-pick blueberry farm in Sawyer Michigan. Located in SW Michigan about a one hour drive from Chicago. Our little one truly enjoyed the wagon ride through the patch and collected a few berries along the way too.
We made mini cheesecakes topped with fresh blueberries from our adventure. YumYum!
