The big, scary milestone that is potty training is looming in our household right now. My husband and I have been subliminally introducing the idea to our daughter by reading potty books, letting her flush the toilet ‘til the cows come home, and of course, creating a poop recipe or two – you know, the usual stuff. What? That’s just us? Ok, well I have to admit that I find it pretty entertaining, and I wanted to share my latest cutesy poopsy recipe and printable with you today: Paleo Tree Poop.
Up here just outside of Toronto, the leaves are changing and falling to the ground and my toddler who is noticing this for the first time LOVES it! So I thought it would be fun to put together a healthy, fun, fall-inspired snack. And since her favorite line from her potty training book is “everybody goes poopoo”, well, I decided that the trees could go poopoo, too.
Why I love this Tree Poop recipe
Full of nutritious nuts, seeds and dried fruit, this Tree Poop recipe is a yummy, gluten and dairy-free snack that hits the spot.
