Sometimes the warmer weather can lead to lighter appetites in our kiddos (and I say “sometimes” lightly because, am I the only one with bottomless pits to feed every day?!).
This doesn’t mean they don’t need proper nourishment for their rapidly growing bodies though! On the contrary, my mantra of “make every bite count” is even more important when they are in a season of eating lighter with warmer weather.
Make every bite that they are taking in worth something with beautiful friendly fats to nourish their growing brains from coconut oil, raw milk or safe coconut milk, and pastured egg yolks. Make every bite count with a safe, real source of protein from grassfed collagen that will nourish their gut lining.
Most store bought popsicles are riddled with behavior altering food dyes and blood sugar spiking corn syrup or sugar. Even organic brands are typically just the fruit juice and can send those little blood sugars on a rollercoaster of spikes.
I love THESE kind of popsicle molds for smaller hands like teething babies and toddlers! Caitlyn has been relieving her sore gums with frozen nourishment lately and just loves them!
