Roasted Carrot and Fennel Purée

One of my favorite veggie combinations is carrot and fennel. Roasting them in the oven with some olive oil and cumin brings out the most delicious flavor. My toddler is now on finger foods pretty much full time, but loves this purée more than eating the roasted chopped vegetables. Whenever we make this side for […]

Avocado Banana Muffins

These avocado banana muffins are great to have on hand for a quick breakfast or afternoon snack for your little one. They’re made with honey to sweeten them up, but remember that honey is not recommended for babies younger than one year due to health risks. These muffins are moist, flavorful and healthy. My daughter […]

Cheddar Cheese Egg Muffins

One of my toddler’s favorite breakfasts is eggs, and after making scrambled eggs so many times I decided to get a little more creative. She now loves eating these cheddar cheese egg muffins that I prepare for her using my Baby Bullet. These little muffins are the perfect finger food, and soft enough for her […]

Banana Waffles

These banana waffles are a fun breakfast treat for the little ones, and contain wholesome, healthy ingredients like whole wheat flour and bananas. There is no sugar added to the waffle batter since they are naturally sweetened by a ripe banana. For this recipe, you will need a waffle maker to cook the batter in […]

Peanut Butter Cup “Ice Cream”

Once our daughter turned 2, she started asking about sweets. Cookies, ice cream, chocolate, and candy were becoming more frequent in her ever-growing vocabulary. We didn’t want to deprive her of enjoying the sweet things in life, but also wanted her to eat healthy foods. As a compromise, I created this peanut butter cup “ice […]

Potato Zucchini Purée

This simple, healthy purée requires only three ingredients: potato, zucchini and milk or water. If your baby is over one and drinking milk, I recommend using milk since it adds more fat and makes the purée more creamy. Now that my toddler is older and eating more, I still make her this purée and add […]

Pea Spinach Pear Purée

When preparing purées for my toddler, I always try to include both fruits and vegetables for two reasons. One, it is hard to get many servings of fruits and vegetables in during our busy days, and two, my daughter just loves all fruits and it makes it easier to feed her vegetables. Remember to cook […]

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. After roasting the pumpkin pieces in the oven, we blended it with coconut milk and vegetable broth. We used the seeds […]
