One of our missions at weelicious is to offer recipes the entire family can enjoy together. A few simple alterations to most any dish suited for mommy and daddy, can make it totally attractive to kids. Take these French Toast Sticks, for example. It's not that I couldn't just hand Chloe, my 15 month old, an entire piece of french toast and have her eat it -- she's actually such an adventurous eater right now, she'll hoover just about anything -- but tailoring a breakfast food my husband and I normally eat with a knife and fork so it's in a fun and appealing kid friendly shape, allows everyone in our family to enjoy the same meal in our own way. These little french toast "fingers" are not only delicious, they're also the perfect size for little hands to hold. Kenya loves dipping them into raspberr-wee sauce, Chloe loves that she can have some independence eating by herself without us cutting her food into little pieces first and I love that you get triple the crusty edges (my favorite part) for each piece of cooked toast since you cut each piece of bread into three sticks . There's truly nothing better then a recipe that fulfills everyone's needs!
