“Daniel was never keen on baby cereal or other pureed foods. I found this recipe when I was searching for ways to incorporate baby cereal and other iron-rich foods into a finger-food diet for him. They are wonderful! Daniel has one or two each morning for breakfast. To mix things up, I sometimes add a banana or a handful of raisins to the mix. These freeze well, so if you end up with too many cookies, just pop them in a freezer bag and save for later! (I found the recipe at www.simcoehealth.org.)”
