Healthy Toddler Meal Side Dish: Maple Carrots and Cashews

By Cheryl Tallman and Joan Ahlers

Baby carrots are very toddler-friendly and most children love cashews. We’ve teamed up these two great tastes in a simple side dish recipe that will appeal to both the young and old.

toddlerIngredients:
1 pound baby carrots
1 cup chicken/vegetable broth
2 Tbsp butter
1 Tbsp maple syrup
2 Tbsp chopped cashews

Directions:
In a saucepan bring the chicken (or vegetable) broth to a boil.

Add the baby carrots and return to a boil.

Reduce heat to low and simmer for 3 minutes.

Remove from heat and pour carrots and broth into a colander to drain. With the saucepan still hot, add butter and honey and stir until melted. Add the carrots and toss gently. Transfer carrots to a serving dish and sprinkle the carrots with chopped cashews.

Makes 5-6 servings.

As all parents of toddler know that getting the little ones to eat healthy starts with quality food and good taste.  Happy toddler parenting!
