Waffle Soldiers

Isn’t it funny how just by changing the shape or delivery of some kind of food, your kids will go from refusing it to gobbling it down? That’s Amelia in a nut-shell. It seems like every few weeks, she goes from loving something to hating it without any rhyme or reason.

She’s always been a massive waffle lover until recently. So, I decided to cut the square waffles into ‘dippers’ or soldiers, as we call them, and give her a huge bowl of natural maple syrup to dip them in. You’d think she would saturate them in the maple syrup, but she actually just dipped the corners in and ate 5 soldiers.

It was amazing and so are these waffle soldiers.
