Eggplant Greek Yogurt Puree

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 […]
