Baby-Led Weaning Expert and Pediatric Dietitian Caroline Weeks understands the struggles of getting your kids to eat healthy foods. This toddler-sized recipe for tuna crescent rolls is one of her solutions to the problem.

“If you have a toddler at home, I wouldn’t be surprised if you told be they have become a little more skeptical about the foods on their plate,” she said. “They might prefer pretty bland, crunchy, maybe white, orange, yellow foods. … I came up with super simple, easy toddler-approved recipe that will help you reintroduce fish to your kiddo’s life.”

This uses simple crescent rolls that you can make at home or buy at the store and stuff them with a healthy, lean protein in canned tuna, frozen vegetables and some flavor-boosters. Perfect hand-held size for a little toddler. They are delicious and simple for lunch, dinner or after-school snack.
