I have been asked a few times what kind of diet we (Angela, I & my hubby) follow, whether it was paleo, vegan or any others. The answer is: none. We eat what we want to eat and feel happy eating. That includes tons of organic fresh fruits and (homegrown) vegetables, some grass-fed meat and fish and a lot of grain (mostly rice and quinoa). So occasionally you will see something looks like a typical paleo meal on our dining table while on other days some vegan treats (like these sweet corn crackers) are served on Angela’s high chair tray . We just try to have well-balanced healthy nutritious meals without having to label them.
Let’s go back to these sweet corn crackers. These definitely are a fun snacking option for your toddlers (hint: lunch box item). They are crunchy, sweet and a bit nutty in flavor. These can be dipped in homemade mayonnaise or tomato sauce or can be eaten just as they are. Alternatively you can also serve these together with a mixed salad for a quick lunch. I personally love that combo but Angela would just eat all the crackers and leave the veggies (!). I will take that for now considering how much goodness are there in these crackers though
If your tots do not eat fish and you worry about how to add some Omega-3 fatty acids to their diet, then these sweet corn crackers are your answer. This recipe contains flaxseeds and flaxseed meal – a great source of Omega 3 fats – will help you to do exactly that. Flaxseeds are also a very rich source of Vitamin B1, fiber, manganese and magnesium. For more health benefits and nutrition information about flaxseeds, read here
Have fun baking!
