Ice Pop Joy
I must admit that on first glance at the inhabitots post on a new book for the Northern Hemisphere summer, filled up with recipes for ice pops I thought 'Wow who needs a book made up of recipes for ice pops? I mean how much can you do?' But the photos were really beautiful so I clicked on.
I soon learned that these are seven whole chapters including much more than frozen fruit and most exciting to parents of young children there is some pretty healthy stuff in here. Fruit, vegetables, yoghurt, tofu...
But it was the third page of the review that really got me. Inhabitots includes a recipe for us- Breakfast Ice Pops made with almond milk, walnuts, bananas and wheat germ. Now this is an idea that some parents will find is a lifesaver for them. What child wouldn't love a yummy, frozen breakfast on a stick. My oldest son was a bit fussy when he was little but my fondest fussy eater memories are by far of my niece who survived solely on smoothies for a good portion of her toddler years. We were able to put all kinds of good things in her smoothie and now Anni Daulter has done the same thing with ice pops-pure genius!
