Put frozen spinach in a microwavable bowl. Quarter fresh or still frozen cranberries and add to spinach.
Microwave for 1.5 min stirring half way through cooking time.
Let your tot sprinkle on the wheat germ or flax seed for an extra boost of nutrition and fun.
The earthy spinach and tart berries are a great combination! If you are making this for a younger baby, blend in a food processor for a smoother texture.
I buy bags of cranberries and put them in the freezer for when they are out of season.
