My toddler has all of a sudden became very fussy with food. Unless it’s cheese sticks, ham or chicken in a biscuit.
I’m finding it tough to feed him nutritious food that will fill him up.
I stumbled across this old recipe in one of my books but altered it to fit muffin trays, perfect singular serves for toddlers.
My little guy doesn’t love them but he also doesn’t refuse them! Good sign 🙂
This recipe is super quick, very easy and has nutrients from the vegetables and meat where you can either add extra vege if you like.
