LOOOOOOOOOONGGGGGGGGGGGGG TIME….. How are you all doing? It has been around 20 days since I had posted a recipe. I was running around few personal commitments and traveling frequently in the past few days. Above all as my little munchkin is growing in his toddler-hood I am being pulled into his space and I am growing.learning and having fun along with him. And of course my lack of planning and laziness are also reasons behind not posting. Thank you all for your constant support. With no more delay let’s get into today’s recipe.It is nothing but a simple VEG CHEESE SANDWICH/VEG. SANDWICH. This is one of our(mom & son) all time favourites. You can offer this as a finger food/snack/breakfast/dinner for your babies post 6 months(Ensure your bread is 100% whole wheat and does not have salt in it). If you are worried about including bread in baby’s diet ensure to include it occasionally and just load it with veggies just as I have done in BREAD UPMA/STIR FRY RECIPE.
