Potato Cake Recipe – Healthy Snack Idea

I am always on the hunt for different snack ideas for me and Jaspy to try to keep things varied and interesting but that are also healthy. So when I had some leftovers potatoes, I thought it would be really good to try and create some potato cakes. They turned out really well and Jasper liked them too (he ended up taking them to soft play and toddler yoga as his snack) so I thought I would create a recipe. Potatoes are a good source of energy, potassium and vitamin B6 so it makes them ideal for toddlers and for all the mummies and daddies running around after them too! This recipes also utilises leftovers so there is less cooking involved which is always a win.

Healthy Green Pesto Recipe

Hi everyone, a bit of a different post for you today, my super easy pesto recipe. I really like making my own pesto as I find it more refreshing and not as heavy as jars of pesto. I also try and make it a bit healthier than pre made pesto with a little bit less oil and I make it completely plant based. I just wanted to share this recipe because I really love it and I hope you will like it too. Jasper also really likes when I mash up the meal pictured below, which I find a bit odd as i thought pesto might be quite a strong flavour for a baby!
