Toddler Food – Yummy Yam Silly Face

Toddler food Yummy Yam Quick Bread

The Yummiest Toddler Food

Time seems to be flying and I enjoy watching Lee’s son, James, grow. Ever wonder what is the best toddler food? He is often so funny and silly, and Lee just sent me this picture of him eating Yummy Yam Quick Bread from my trim&TERRIFIC cookbook KITCHEN 101: Secrets to Cooking Confidence – he was eating it in the car and when she turned around, it ended up all over him – even in his ears! Although he called it his ‘pancake’ she said he loved this toddler food and she loved that he was enjoying his veggie servings at the same time.
