Broccoli and Olive Oil Puree

My 2-and-a-half year old daughter has a love/hate relationship with broccoli. Some days she will eat half a stock of steamed broccoli while other days she turns a sour face away and refuses. My husband and I have at times resorted to using her favorite fruit gummy as bribery to get her to eat her […]

Carrot Zucchini Banana Bread

Once your baby is able to eat breads, this carrot zucchini banana bread is a nutritious snack for him or her. It is made with freshly grated zucchini and carrot, and intense banana flavor. I also use whole wheat flour instead of all-purpose flour to give it more fiber. You can control how much sugar […]

Pea Pesto Pasta

I love making ‘pesto’ pasta variations for my little babies. This pesto came about when I noticed I had a large bag of frozen peas in my freezer that needed to be used. It’s great because they don’t take a long time to cook up, and you can add all your ingredients to the Baby […]

Baby’s First Blueberry “Ice Cream”

Before I lose you at “ice cream,” let me first tell you that this isn’t real ice cream, of course! It is made with frozen bananas and no added sugar, but tastes just as good (if not better) than real ice cream. Your baby will love this healthy version of blueberry ice cream, and you […]

Baby’s Spiced Lentil Stew

It’s always a fun new stage when your baby moves from eating pureed veggies and fruits to actually chewing foods with texture.

Apple Spinach Pear and Blueberry Purée

I love preparing homemade purées for my baby. There is something about watching the process of nutritious, whole foods being cooked, blended up, and finally eaten by my baby that gives me a good feeling inside. Preparing nutritious purées for your baby is not only healthy for your baby, but also very easy to do! […]

Sweet Potato Casserole is one dish that I could eat year around. I love the sweetness of the dish, with hints of different spices, and the yummy toasted marshmallows on top! This puree is meant to help develop more taste buds in your baby, giving them a chance to explore the subtle hints of cinnamon […]

How to Make Flavorful Kiwi Banana Puree

We all love to treat ourself to a high-end fruit smoothie where you add extra vitamins and supplements that help you justify the overpriced drink you just purchased. Sure, you could’ve made the smoothie on your own. But it’s so much easier to let someone else make you a delicious fruit smoothy. Especially one that […]

Green Bean, Carrot and Rice Purée

As my daughter is getting older, it seems her pickiness about vegetables is getting worse. The only way she will eat them is hidden in a purée, like this green bean, carrot and rice one. I first steam the carrots and green beans and cook a small pot of rice. Once cooked, I blend them […]

Toddler Breakfast Cookies

I love the idea of breakfast cookies, especially when you are on the go and can’t have a sit down breakfast. These are packed with protein, fiber, and come together so quickly! They are even the perfect snack cookies, and you won’t feel bad about giving them to your kiddos! Toddler Breakfast Cookie Recipe Ingredients […]
