Your munchkin’s palate is color coded: Brown and orange mean go, green means stop, and red means ketchup.
Send the right signals with Baby Bon Appetit catering. The business brings fresh, toddler-friendly fare to your home or birthday party, and even provides organic hot lunches to local private schools.
Dishes are made from scratch with whole-food ingredients and healthy substitutions, like agave nectar instead of sugar. With catchy presentations (fruit kebabs resembling stoplights) and nontraditional portions (bite-size empanadas), kids will easily swallow the fact that everything is nutritious.
Which will have you tickled pink.
