Welcome! I am not a Dr. or a nutritionist, I am just a mom of a toddler that became a picky eater. As an infant my son ate anything and everything we fed him, it was great! After his first birthday he stopped eating the healthy stuff and we fell into a rut of bagel bites, grilled cheese, chicken tenders and toast. I decided to seek out recipes that he would eat but were still healthy for him. If you have any recipes to share please send me a message and I will get it added. If you make any of the recipes I'd love for you to leave a comment! Enjoy!

Spinach Balls

This is the first recipe I tried (that I got from a bumpie lauren&matt), my son LOVED them! That is when I knew I had to keep being creative in sneaking in those veggies! They freeze really well.
• 1 (10 ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
• 2 cups finely crushed herb-seasoned dry bread stuffing mix
• 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
• 2 teaspoons garlic powder
• 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
• 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
• 1/2 cup melted butter
• 3 eggs, beaten
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
2. In a large bowl combine spinach, stuffing mix, Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, black pepper, Italian seasoning, melted butter and eggs. Shape into walnut-sized balls and place on a baking sheet.
3. Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until heated through and browned.


  1. can you freeze these either pre or post baking?

  2. I've only tried post baking, that way when he is hungry I can just heat a few up. I'm all about saving time.
