Leftovers: they make great baby snacks

I remember prebaby when I’d throw away the little pile of pasta and three broccoli trees left on my plate after dinner. Not any more! I save everything. I now wrap up leftovers and put them in the fridge. If they don’t get eaten in a couple days, I’ll compost them. I save so much time this way. I store those unwanted nibbles in the same container—then when it’s snack time, I just open the container and let Mikey pick and choose. Some of the most common leftovers are cubed cheese, watermelon, cantaloupe, grapes, pasta, broccoli trees, sweet potato cubes, and half-eaten almond butter sandwiches.

If the fruit looks too brown to serve again, I blend it up in a fruit smoothie.

Keep it simple, eat healthy!
