Healthy Breakfast Bars for Toddlers: Tasty Breakfast Buddies
Life with a toddler has its fair share of challenges, especially when you’re juggling getting ready for work, daycare drop offs and older kids who don’t want to play along. That’s where our healthy breakfast bar recipe for toddlers comes in handy.
We’ve created the perfect breakfast snack for on-the-go. Our Breakfast Buddies keep in the fridge for up to two weeks and are handy to have on hand when things just don’t go to plan. Grab one to please your tiny human before leaving the house and know that you’re serving up the goodness of quinoa and pumpkin seeds and the irresistible sweetness of dates. All that while saving your sanity.
The We Might Be Tiny Freeze and Bake Poddie makes whipping up these healthy flavour bombs super simple. Process and mix all your ingredients, place them in the fridge and give it a few hours so that your Poddie can turn the goodness into cute Bear, Cat and Bunny-shaped treats that will put a smile on your toddler’s face.
Once you’re finished, simply let the dishwasher take care of the mess for you or give it a quick rinse under warm soapy water so you can get on with life. Genius!
