Butternut Squash and Brown Rice


My little Elle loved, loved, loved butternut squash as a baby. Actually, she loved when I steamed any vegetable that was orange. She loved carrots, sweet potatoes, you name it… But then, at 16 months, her love for the orange vegetable began to wave. How can she be growing up this fast? This made me […]

I’m from the South and peaches are in season! Even though I’m making these foods for my baby, I can’t wait to take her peach and apple picking. Learning about healthy eating is the key to opening up baby’s palate to a wide array of new foods – even the ones that you yourself may not like. […]
