Sweet Potato Pancakes for Toddlers (and Adults πŸ˜‰)

Sweet Potato Pancakes

Young children need healthy fat to grow well. In fact, babies and young toddlers need almost half of their calories from fat, which is critical for brain growth and development. And even older children still need around a third of their calories from a healthy fat source. These Sweet Potato Pancakes are packed with antioxidants and essential nutrients that will supercharge your kids health. On-the-go parents of babies and toddlers often reach for processed, refined-grain snack foods like teething crackers, biscuits, cookies, and cereal (like Cheerios). Unfortunately, these foods offer very little nourishment and in addition to being addictive, they are also inflammatory. A great alternative are whole foods that nourish, like these Sweet Potato Pancakes. You can serve them as a meal or carry them in a to-go container as a great pincer grasp snack food. Little kids love them hot or cold.

Homemade Ghee

Homemade Ghee

Ghee is another name for clarified butter and is an ancient healing food of India.  Its a staple in my kitchen for numerous reasons.  This unique traditional food is made by boiling butter and removing its milk solids, making it suitable for those that are unable to tolerate milk protein or casein even the smallest amounts.  Ghee is also one of the finest cooking oils; its high smoke point makes it perfect for cooking.
