Sweet Potato, Apple, & Spinach Puree

Spinach has always been my favorite green vegetable to use because it has a very mild taste. Any sweeter type fruit or vegetable could easily cover up the spinach taste. Thankfully for this puree, between the sweet potato and apple, your baby won’t even notice they are getting a healthy source of vitamin K! Sweet […]

Baby’s First Creamsicle Ice Cream

After your baby turns one, the possibilities for food begin to widen because they can slowly start to introduce dairy into their diet. With an older age also comes new teeth and molars, which can definitely be NO fun! My girls always preferred cold foods over warm foods when their teeth and mouth are in […]

Baby’s Cheesy Broccoli

I don’t think any child gets super excited about broccoli for dinner, unless you add cheese sauce! This is the perfect new recipe for your young one! Cut up your broccoli into small pieces so that it’s easy for babies to pick up on their own and chew. Toss in the yummy cheese and vegetable […]

Baby’s First Cheesy Noodles

Spaghetti is one of my favorite foods to feed a baby. They love the chewy texture, and I love how I can prepare it differently each time to favor their needs. This pasta has been a favorite with my kids. They love the creamy sauce that pairs with the pasta, and I love that it […]

Baby Carrot and Quinoa Soup

After raising 3 kids, I’ve learned that as they grew and tried a new variety of foods, their sweet palate always trumped everything else. It was always easier to feed them sweet potatoes and prunes than green beans and spinach. Honestly, it’s easier for me to eat those too! Carrots are one of those vegetables […]

Baby Ice with Cinnamon and Pumpkin

  When my kids turn one, they start to have a new sense of attitude towards food. They get pickier, which makes it harder to find things they want to eat. Ice cream is usually one of those foods that never gets turned away, but it’s also not the healthiest option. I discovered making ice […]

Baby Pumpkin Carrot Soup

Soup is one of the first ‘real meals’ that my babies enjoyed eating. I love the stage where they are starting to realize they can drink through a straw! They want to drink everything they see. One of my tricks to get my little ones to eat soup is to add a straw to the […]

Baby Banana Oatmeal Smoothie

I love the age when babies begin to sip through a straw because they tend to eat more than being spoon fed. It’s my favorite way to get more nutrients into my little one’s body. I love this smoothie because it’s the perfect breakfast/snack drink that will keep them full and satisfied. It’s naturally sweetened […]

Whipped Ricotta with Fresh Strawberries

It’s always hard to think of new and creative ways to get your baby the nutrition he or she needs, and sometimes they tire of bland vegetables. That is why I LOVE this recipe, because it can serve as a delicious, easy-to-make spread for adults, or a yummy first food for the kiddos! It’s totally versatile. […]

Caramel Applesauce

Every time I make applesauce, I’m reminded how it’s probably the easiest thing to do. It has little to no prep, and you could switch up the flavors to whatever your heart, or you little baby’s heart, desires! Recently, my little one was getting FOUR of her molars at the same time, and, needless to […]
