It’s no secret that I am a Mom of 6, and as a Mom of 6 I have used my share of baby food; but I can gladly say that I have not wasted it one bit. Children eat many different amounts at different times, as well as suddenly deciding they did not like the taste of one item, or another. In my effort to not be wasteful, I would find creative ways to use the remainder of the baby food in other dishes;
See Gerber baby food is NOT just baby food – it’s also a great recipe substitute!
From baking breads, to cookies, cereal bars, the list is never ending. One of my favorite dishes to make with left over baby cereal and fruit puree is Honey Baked Fruit Crisp.
One Family favorite, from the adults to the children of all ages; is the Honey Baked Fruit Crisp. With a little bit of baby cereal, fruit puree, love, and some fruits; the outcome is delicious!
I know it sounds crazy, silly, or maybe even weird to use baby food in recipes; but trust me when I tell you that the only thing it IS; is delicious!
This all came about one day as I was looking through my pantry and saw that I had plenty of baby food and not much of a baby anymore (because we all know can you buy klonopin online that a “big boy” is not a “Baby”). So I looked through all of the varieties I had, and aside from the many flavors and types; but the added benefit is that they are filled with Iron-fortified (which is a key to healthy growth and development) and Vitablocks® (which are a blend of six B Vitamins, Vitamins E and C, iron, zinc, and calcium). So I figured that it could only enhance the benefits of the meal if I used it as a substitute. I will be posting several recipes that I have made for my kids over the years, and I can assure you that none of them taste like “baby food”.
