Apple Cinnamon Sticks: Healthy Toddler To Go Snack!

Apple Cinnamon Sticks: Healthy Toddler To Go Snack!

Did you know it’s apple season right now?

These days, we’re usually rushing off somewhere.  We’re headed to take our 2-year old to preschool, we’re waking up from naptime and heading to a play date, or my husband and I are just trying to run some errands on a Saturday, desperately trying not to let nap time, lunch time, or feeding time for our 4-month old get in the way!  As all parents know, this is no easy task.

These delicious Apple Cinnamon Sticks are a healthy toddler to go snack, and they taste like, well…apple pie!!  This recipe makes several servings and stays ready in the fridge for a couple of days, so it’s ready when you are.  The citrus from the lemon juice helps keep the fruit fresh and prevents it from browning.  These cold, crisp apples make a wonderful, soothing snack for sore gums on a teething child!

Apple Cinnamon Sticks Recipe:

Age: 15 months+
Prep Time: 5 minutes
