Don't let your toddler eat fast food fries. They have been deep-fried and contain absolutely zero vitamins,
minerals, or fiber. Instead, make some fries at home that are full of nutrition!
Cut up 2 or 3 potatoes, or use sweet
potatoes instead of white potatoes for an extra jolt of vitamin A, into quarters, eighths, or French fry shapes. You can peel
them if you wish, but remember that the peels have lots of nutrients. Put the cut-up potatoes in a bowl and toss them with
melted butter. Use only about 1 teaspoon of melted butter for each potato. (Or save washing a big bowl and brush them with
melted butter instead.) Spread potatoes on a cookie sheet sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Bake in pre-heated 400 oven
for 20 minutes or until browned. You may need a metal spatula to get them off the pan.
**Variations: Instead of butter,
coat the fries with a beaten egg. This adds protein and lots of crispy texture. Sprinkle some Parmesan cheese and/or parsley
on the fries for extra flavor!
