Pancakes: Filled with Fruits & Veggies | Newtown Moms

Lately I’ve been longing for the days when my oldest would try anything. In typical mom fashion, I’ve been questioning why she is such a picky eater. Is it truly her age or could I have introduced her to foods in a better way? I know it’s definitely her age (but hello mom doubt), so we’ve reverted back to something I used to do when she was under one – hiding fruits & veggies in pancakes. And now with her new found obsession with maple syrup, it seems to be a winning combination. And once the baby starts eating, fingers crossed, these recipes will make easy breakfasts for both kids. Below I’ve included a few of our favorite recipes. The sources for the recipes are unknown – they’ve just been collected along the way. Oh and added bonus – all freeze really well, so you can make ahead and then reheat as needed.
