As any parent knows, feeding a baby can be a messy business. From the first tentative foray into solid foods to the never-ending procession of spills and spit-ups, mealtime with a little one can often seem more like a battle than a pleasure. However, there are some simple strategies that can help to make the experience more enjoyable for both baby and parent. One such strategy is to offer popsicles as a treat after meals.
Not only are popsicles an easy way to provide fruits and vegetables in a child-friendly form, but they can also help to soothe a sore throat or calm an upset stomach. And for parents who are struggling to get their kids to eat their greens, popsicles offer a sneaky way to sneak in some extra nutrients. So next time you’re feeling frazzled at mealtimes, reaching for the freezer might be the best solution.
