Fall Recipe Spotlight: Homemade Applesauce
Earlier this month, Kanmani shared how she engages her toddler at mealtime. Her ideas, dancing and singing while preparing and serving meals, are two ways to engage a child's senses and keep him interested in the healthy foods in front of him. This featured fall recipe provides another way of getting kids interested in healthy foods. How? By filling your home with the sweet aroma of homemade applesauce as it cooks on the stove.
