This is a dish I bring to family gatherings often because you can get it started ahead of time and just forget about it while letting the flavors all meld together.

CrockPot Lasagna Soup is the perfect weeknight dinner! In this easy recipe, the slow cooker does all of the work to bring the goodness of lasagna and the comfort of soup together into one amazing meal.
I give you the option to use fresh OR canned OR jarred tomatoes! Either way I make it... there is NEVER leftovers in our house! One time I even made TRIPLE the sauce... and still- nope. Once you try this authentic sauce you made with pure love/ you'll never go back to store bought crap.

As little ones transition from babies to active toddlers, they are usually on the go nonstop from morning until night! Toddlers will actually need more nutrients per pound of body weight to fuel all this energy. But still, their tummies are still small, that is why it is more important than ever to fill each meal with nutrient rich ingredients to make every bite count. Good nutrition for toddlers includes a mix of foods containing these essential nutrients: iron, protein, calcium, vitamins A, C, and D, fiber, DHA and other omega-3 fatty acid's and pre-and probiotics.
