Need Some New Baby Food Ideas? Try Some Of These!

 

I didn’t like tomatoes, broccoli, avocados, and a variety of other things as a kid, which is kind of ironic now that I’m a vegetarian and love all of them. I hope my daughter will enjoy a variety of foods as well, so it’s been fun to come up with new mixes and see what she likes (so far she likes everything- I’m hoping that lasts 🙂 ).

The following are some of my favorite puree combinations that I find myself sampling as I feed my daughter:

Yogurt “Parfait”:

Mix 1/3 of a mashed banana + cinnamon + 1-2 oz. plain whole milk Greek yogurt

__________

Lentil “Stew”:

Blend cooked lentils + no-sodium veggie broth + cooked carrots together

__________

Fruit N’ Oatmeal:

Top baby oatmeal cereal with peach/apple puree + a dash of cinnamon & nutmeg

__________

Green Pea “Guacamole”:

Blend 1 oz pureed peas + 1/2 a mashed avocado together

__________

Veggie “Curry”:

Blend cooked yellow squash + butternut squash+ carrots + zucchini + no-sodium veg broth + a sprinkle of curry powder together; just before serving, mix in a bit of Quinoa Cereal to thicken it up

You can make baby “curry” at the same time as “grown up” curry to cut down on meal prep time.
