Mooched Mommy Idea #9
My son has learned the word, "popsicle." He requests them for breakfast, lunch, dinner and at snack time. Recently, when his baby cousin tried to mooch a lick, he put it on his head to get it out of her reach. Dude means business about his daily treat.
I hate giving him all of that sugar and corn syrup, and have mooched these ideas from fellow mommies:
1. Applesauce popsicles. Just freeze no-sugar applesauce in popsicle molds. Voila!
2. Fruit Chillers. You can find them in the canned fruit section of the grocery store. They are mainly fruit juices with a little sugar added.
3. Frozen grapes, blueberries or bananas. All of these fruits freeze really well, and are quite tasty.
I am currently also looking for healthy alternatives to ice cream, cake and cookies. Not having much luck yet.....
