Dear Food Bloggers, We, Healthy Morsels Team is really happy to get connected with you all through this roundup after a long gap. Our sincere apologies for the delay in the roundup, due to unavoidable circumstances we postponed this roundup for a few weeks. We are now here to thank everyone who have been with us all through this journey.

Our Healthy Morsels began with the most exciting part of every woman’s life, pregnancy and then continued as one of the important responsibilities of women, feeding the baby. No matter whether she has one kid or five kids,  every mum cares and takes responsibilty for every single food which a baby intakes. As we all know, the first food and the food which is given in the early years for a baby or toddler plays an important role with the health of the baby.

Our wonderful food bloggers and experienced mums have shared some of their fantastic recipes and useful tips with us. Please don’t forget to go through all the recipes which we received for the event.  We hope that these recipes will be a treat to your baby and toddler and it’ll also make life easier for all new mums.
