Chicken and Carrot Cups
Luca is hit or miss with meat. Sometimes, he’ll devour a plate of Applegate’s chicken nuggets. Sometimes, he’ll eat a full cup of turkey bolognese. And sometimes, he’ll even eat crumbled chicken sausage! These occurrences happen once or twice a month. Otherwise, he’s more of a vegetable, sandwich, muffin, and carbs guy. Meat is a tough one!
There are such important nutrients in meat (and yes, of course, these can also be found in a vegetarian diet!) and so, I try to incorporate meat as much as I can and inventively. For whatever reason, my son does well with two things: muffin shaped foods and ground meat. With these Chicken and Carrot Cups, I’ve combined those two to make a guaranteed hit with Luca!
He gobbled one of these up after I took photos of them (he stole one right off the table!) and it made for the cutest little chunky hand photos, of course.
And because I know I’ll get the question, yes, these can be made without the cheese! I haven’t tried any egg substitutes here, so give it a shot and leave a comment below and let us know if it worked!
You could even switch up the vegetable here – try shredded sweet potato, broccoli, or even beet!
