Kale Pasta for Toddlers

I’ve been a very lucky mom, for the past 7 months my daughter has been an excellent eater. Recently, she has discovered that playing and exploring is much more fun than eating. So, trying to get her attention and keeping it long enough to feed her a meal has been a challenge. The fun part is learning new ways to make her meals colourful, nutritious and appealing.

Ingredients You’ll Need:

  • 6 cups of water
  • 1/2 cup of miniature star pasta
  • 2 cups of frozen kale
  • 2 tbsp of boiling water
  • 1 tbsp of flax-seed oil

Bring water to a rolling boil, add pasta. Reduce heat and cook for 10 mins

This recipe will give you about 24 cube servings. In my home this will last for 4 days!
