Toddler Noodles


This wasn't the first time I tried serving the toddlers plain noodles.  The first time was about a year ago and I chose some whole wheat pasta in a much larger shape.  They ended up almost choking on it, so I took noodles off my menus.

I wanted to try it again, but this time with a different shape and with regular pasta.

I boiled up some Ditalini according to the package directions.  I then divided it up into meal-sized portions and added a pat of butter to each, then put it in the freezer.

On meal day.  I take pop one out into a mini crock pot first thing in the morning, stir a couple of times, and it's defrosted and heated through by lunch.

The toddlers can handle the shape and texture so much better.  They love it plain and ask for more!
