I started making Jude fruit and veggie bites so he'd be able to feed himself something nutritious that he could actually hang on to. Now they are his favorite snacks. They're delicious, honestly. I make a couple of different variations, and now I actually make them double sized. They obviously defrost faster when small, so make whatever is most convenient for you and your babykins.
