Dr. Frieda Fontaine expert review for this recipe :
This recipe sounds delicious. It’s a great way to sneak in more vegetables for your toddler. The dish also provides the flexibility of experimenting with different vegetables to accommodate your toddler’s taste. When first making this dish, use spices conservatively until you understand what your toddler can tolerate, especially when it comes to heat level. Additionally, rice noodles are a good option for toddlers with wheat sensitivity.
The cheese is a good source of calcium and protein and the vegetables are a good source of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. For added protein, you can choose to cube lean chicken into the recipe. If your toddler isn’t a fan of chicken, there’s tofu which provides a good vegetarian source of protein. Make sure vegetables are cut small enough so your toddler can chew and swallow them easily. Store leftovers for up to three days.
I hope you like this recipe. Please do try and let me know how your toddler liked it. Also write to firstname.lastname@example.org should you have any questions. Alternatively, you can leave them in the comments too.
