The Easiest Kid-Friendly Christmas Side Dish: Cookie Cutter Roasties
Let’s face it. Getting your toddler to eat their daily dose of vegetables can be a constant struggle. Some don’t like greens. Others hate anything soft. It’s hard to win! That’s why we’ve come up with possibly the easiest kid-friendly Christmas Side Dish so you can dine in peace and quiet at least one day of the year.
Our Cookie Cutter Roasties make the daily dose of vegetables a fun affair and trick your tiny human into eating whatever vegetables you dish up without any arguments.
Sounds too good to be true? We’ve given our cookie cutter shapes a decent workout in the lead up to Christmas and they’ve been a game-changer. It’s incredible what a Christmas tree shaped sweet potato can shift in those tiny minds.
If you want your Cookie Cutter Roasties to be even more convenient, simply use our We Might Be Tiny Placies as your non-stick surface to cut out your vegetables. Saves you wiping the kitchen bench and you can even spread them out on the Placie to pop them straight in the oven as they are. All our silicone dinner and tableware is oven-safe up to 230°C and loves a good clean in the dishwasher to save you time and sanity.
Now grab your veggies, give them a good wash and let your creativity run wild.
