Mom needs energy! That’s something I’ve learned these past 11 months with the Nico boy! It usually happens like this: Baby is hungry, and you are hungry… At the same time. The only problem is mom only has one hand, because she’s feeding baby with the other hand (breastfeeding, bottle, spoon, etc). I designed this recipes for all the mamas out there! You can pop these into your mouth with one hand! I like to make a batch and keep them in my fridge for snacking when necessary! Hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
