When I would prepare a meal for the whole family our food was either too hot for our preschooler and toddler or too cold for my husband and me. Because we also have a seven month-old baby, we have cubes of pureed veggies sitting in the freezer (I froze them into cute shapes using silicone ice cube trays). So, now when the family meal is ready, I pop a few cubes of pureed veggies into the older girls’ food. They love having stars or hearts in their food and it cools their meal down. Plus they get an extra boost of vegetables.
This is one of those hacks that manages to straddle cute and practical. I love it.
