Healthy meal for your toddler - OPOS way

Who wouldn't agree- A mom who spends minimum time in the kitchen yet has a plate full of healthy and tasty food cooked is the one who is really efficient and smart!

Ever since I have adopted the OPOS way of cooking (One pot one shot) I look forward to cook different dishes, as I don't really sweat or stress in the kitchen and cooking is fun!
