My fall back toddler meal idea

There are some days when everything is all over the place and putting a proper and timely meal for Nathan is just not possible. I confess that I too have fallen back on (horror of horrors) the pack of frozen chicken nuggets for Nathan’s dinner.

Of course I try not to resort to the chicken nugget stash too often, so my other favourite fall back plan is this…

Baked Sweet Potato Fries

They’re the easiest thing to pull together and so healthy! Sweet potatoes apparently rank as the number one most nutritional vegetable.

Just take one or two sweet potatoes, clean, peel and cut them into wedges

Toss them in a little drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of salt/pepper

Then bake in a 170-180° Celsius oven for about 15-20 minutes

And into the tummy they go!

This is Nathan’s absolute favourite way of eating sweet potatoes, for which I’m glad they are so simple to make.

 

P.S.1 You can also try this with carrots or beetroot or vary the recipe by adding other spices or herbs for seasoning or some grated parmesan.

P.S.2 More super simple idiot proof recipes using under four ingredients

And so Nathan’s very first day of kindergarten is over. It was a mixture of good, bad, sweet and sour. I think that so much happens throughout the day, it can be challenging for a little person to filter through it all.

These days my days are packed full to the brim. From the moment I wake up to the sound of Grace calling through the baby monitor and Nathan’s cheeky face peering at me over the edge of the bed… to the evening when I finally tuck them into bed and say goodnight.
