Let’s face it! Kids (and adults) need some treats. We all have a sweet tooth, but that doesn’t have to mean we eat something unhealthy. This custard is only slightly sweet, so it is great for young toddlers. It is packed with healthy fats that contain choline, fat soluble vitamins, gelatin for the bones and skin, and berries for healthy carbohydrates and Vitamin C.
