Toddler Pizza Croissants
This is Back-To-School Giveaway Bonanza week which is a perfect time to talk about foods that are perfect for back-to-school. This is one of those.
We were dining out at a restaurant and ordered something similar to this as an appetizer and for our 2 year old to eat for dinner. Our two year old eats well but doesn’t eat a lot of foods with multiple flavors. I would describe him as a bit of a purist when it comes to his food. But these? These he gobbled down in two seconds. I think he actually at 3 or 4 of them before we left the dinner table. I was shocked.
And it didn’t take me long to figure out how to replicate and freeze them. Now we have several bags full as go-to lunch meals. Try them out on your child this week and see how they fair at your house!
