Turkey Potato Broccoli Purée

Our daughter really enjoys the foods we cook during the holiday season, especially in the form of an easy to eat purée! Most recently, we made her a purée of oven-roasted turkey meat, mashed potatoes, steamed broccoli and cranberry sauce to sweeten it up a bit. This purée is an all-inclusive meal for little ones […]

Veggie Tots

Once kids hit the finger food stage, it can be a challenge giving them healthy snacks with all of the temptations of packaged foods. We like to make these veggie tots to snack on, which can be kept in the refrigerator for a few days to enjoy. They are made with broccoli, carrots, egg and […]

Pumpkin Coconut Soup

Nothing says Fall like a bowl of warm pumpkin soup! My toddler enjoyed helping me during every step of cooking this pumpkin coconut soup, from scooping the seeds out to eating the finished product.

Black Sesame Cupcakes

My 2-year old and I had fun baking these black sesame cupcakes, made with whole wheat flour, yogurt, milk, cocoa powder, eggs and black sesame seeds.

Blackberry Avocado Smoothie

We recently made this healthy pumpkin banana bread together using a ripe banana, pumpkin purée, coconut oil, whole wheat flour, milk and maple syrup to sweeten it up just a bit. It is always […]

Strawberry Apple Carrot Purée

I have been making purées this way ever since we tested everything individually on my daughter to make sure she didn’t have any food allergies. In this mixed purée, […]

Sweet Corn Quiche

My toddler loves this sweet corn quiche for breakfast, lunch or dinner. For a busy mom, it is one of my favorite dishes to whip up, because it only requires a few ingredients and very little time. Find a pre-made pastry shell and frozen corn at the grocery store to cut down even more time. […]

My 2-year old loves to snack on them, and I don’t feel guilty because they are actually healthy for her. These date cookies are made with puréed dates, banana, oat flour, oats and almond […]

Raspberry Peach Smoothie Bowl

Lately, we have been in a breakfast rut. My daughter and I have the same three breakfasts every week, and we have been getting tired of oatmeal, eggs and banana pancakes. A few days ago, I decided to switch things up and make this raspberry peach smoothie bowl with the fresh peaches we bought at […]
