Holiday Chicken Puree

We enjoyed a beautifully relaxing beach holiday recently with amazing sunny days and crystal clear water.  George loved it!  He also loved all food I “threw” together while we were away.  It’s funny how everything seems to taste better while on holidays.  I suddenly wish the bowl of muesli with fruit and yoghurt was bottomless and the salad rolls after coming home from a long morning at the beach I hope never end.  George seemed to be the same with this throw-together meal of chicken, apple, sweet potato, carrot and corn I made for him on one of our last days away.  I’d love to know if tastes just as good back home.

Nutrition Note:  It can be very easy to relax completely while on holidays and let healthy eating slide.  Try to keep a variety of healthy food choices on offer for your babies and toddlers.
