Finger Foods & Spinach Nuggets!

So I mentioned while I was in ATL I was learning tricks from my friend Emily a mom of 2.  I have been struggling lately with what kind of finger foods to give my boy. He wants bites of what I have and sometimes what I have is not that healthy! Yikes! Now we all have to eat better since I plan to transition PB to strictly table food by the 1 year mark and I don't want to be making separate meals for everyone.
Emily introduced me to the spinach nugget! I had never heard of these before, so I thought it  was brilliant. Peebs ate some at her house and loved them. She told me you can buy some from Morning Star in the frozen foods or you can make your own! They are baked, not fried FYI.
I made some for peebs today using THIS recipe and it was super easy, and they are surprisingly quite good, even though they don't look so pretty. My other batch was in a muffin tin and looked much better. I would say it made about 30 nuggets.


 Peebs ate 5 for dinner ! I used my kitchen scissors to cut them into perfect little bites and it was quite neat/clean!



Doesn't he look happy? He kicked his feet for them, which in PB language means - "DELICIOSO"


Also I can freeze all the extra and used them when needed ! I highly recommend these for all you ladies out there with babes into finger foods. Which, by the way. ..Are our kids now "toddlers" or what exactly is a toddler? Just Wonderin......

LURV all Veggie Patch products!! Follow on Facebook and they will notify you of coupons! It has never occurred to me to make my own though. Good idea!

Awesome idea...I've been struggling with what to give Ethan as far as table foods. I can always come up with a fruit, but veggies are a little more difficult. I'll have to give these a try!

Love that you give your little guy healthy foods. I'm taking note of this recipe for later!

I'm totally going to try the frozen kind, then maybe make our own. I struggle with veges that Sally will eat. And she's been eating table food for about 7 months and I just get in these ruts. I thought it would get easier!

Also, I believe a toddler has to toddle, aka walk. Which means I had a toddler WAY too early.
