Real Fruit Gummies (AIP, Paleo)



Gummies, Gummies, Gummies

I am pretty sure Emily (who is nearly 2 now) is 50% made up of gummiess, the other 50% being clementines. She has a problem, we are working on it. Anyway, gummies have become a staple in our house. It is a great way to give her fruit when they are out of season, thank you freezer section, and I actually find them sometimes less messy then the actually fruit at times. Plus, she gets a good dose of gelatin. Each week, I make up a new batch of gummies for her to snack on through out the week. This is a great snack for kiddos of all ages, from beginner baby-led weaners to toddlers to pre-teens.
