Apple Couscous is a sweet & savoury flavoured dish that you can easily make in minutes for your toddler. It is suitable from 1 year up and can be made in bigger quantity for the whole family, as well as make a good lunchbox meal for school.
Couscous are small wheat or semolina granules that cooks by just pouring boiling water on it and allowing it to soak up the water to get done. Just like you make fried rice, you can as well use couscous as an alternative, which is basically a bit of what i did here, but this time i added a bit of sweet taste to it. Apples are good nutrition for kids and this recipe is equally a good way to encourage your toddler to start chewing on them.
You can use other vegetables of choice to this recipe, as well as use other kinds of protein like chopped beef, chicken, fish etc.
