Sometimes as a mom, we choose foods that are simple yet delicious when feeding our little ones’ hungry tummies. Why are hand pies a hit with both moms and kids? Well…

Kids love hand pies because:

  • You don’t need to sit down and use a fork. Just pick it up and enjoy!
  • They’re easy to hold in little hands, no need to cut, and it’s a crust pretty much every kid can agree on!
