    Hi, love your recipes although yet to try anyone of them. But I will definitely try the chicken stock. Do you have any recipe for breakfast oatmeal for toddlers? or any breakfast recipe?

    • food-4tots says:

      Adeline: Thank you for loving my recipes. I don’t have any breakfast oatmeal recipe but you can consider oatmeal banana raisin muffin or homemade granola. For breakfast ideas, you can try any kind of muffins (steamed or baked), bread or pancakes. Hope it helps! 🙂

    Ynn: I think finger food (veggie or meat patties, sandwiches) will be easy to handle than noodles for your toddler.
