4 Nutritious Toast Recipes You and Your Littles will Love!
Remember when you were little and your parents would ask you not to play with your food? Sometimes it’s just necessary and all around fun! I love getting Charlie in the kitchen to help out as much as possible. We both enjoy our time in the kitchen together- She gets to feel like a big girl who is helping her mommy and I love the memories we are making together.
Charlie has always been a healthy eater from the time she started eating solid foods. Eating whole foods and natural ingredients was something we wanted to incorporate early on. One of her favorite foods is bread. She loves to eat bread in all the ways possible. Thank goodness it’s so versatile. Our favorite bread is the Arnold Organic White Made with Whole Wheat Bread made with Whole Wheat. The first ingredient is Whole Wheat and comes packed with vitamins A, D, and E, USDA Organic and Non-GMO Project verified. It’s even sustainably baked using renewable energy. It’s truly a bread we can feel good about.
The texture is so soft and smooth- even the pickiest eaters will love! Besides the taste, one of Charlie’s favorite parts of the bread is her excitement when she sees Disney’s Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse on the packaging! You see why Arnold Organic White Made with Whole Wheat Bread is a favorite in our household?
Let’s get back to playing with our food! Recently, I’ve been coming up with fun ways to present Charlie’s food to her to make eating more exciting! She’s a very busy toddler with lots of playing to do, so sometimes sitting at a table for a meal can be a challenge. I like to get her involved in the kitchen to help with the process. Lately, we’ve been coming up with different variations of toast to eat as a meal or a snack. We love creating animals and designs with fruit or whatever ingredient we are using for our toast in the morning. The first ingredient we always start with is Arnold Organic White Made with Whole Wheat Bread. Here are some of our favorite combinations we like to use:
We love to turn these ingredients into a caterpillar.
- Sunflower Butter
This one is just fun to assemble! You can make it abstract art!
- Boiled Egg
- Everything Bagel Seasoning
This combination is just one we both like to dive into. Charlie likes to try to eat both our boiled eggs every single time!
- Classic PB & J
- I used organic peanut butter and for my “jelly” I mash fresh strawberries with a tiny bit of honey to put on top!
This is Charlie’s favorite combination.
These 4 nutritious toast recipes are plant based and make for the perfect breakfast, lunch, or even a midday snack that you can feel good about eating or giving to your kids!
