I love making random purees for my little adventurous eater. This puree is probably eliciting a lot of wonder, but I urge you to try it! For children, developing those brains and mental capacity is key. Those growing minds and bodies make for a happy and active baby. Breast milk is a good source of iron. So, if your […]

Making your own baby food is so easy and cost efficient! I love knowing that this tiny body I helped create will now be eating food that I prepare. Baby Bullet makes it so easy with their travel containers, so you can be stocked up for the whole week. The combination of these three ingredients: coconut milk, yummy […]

I find that baby food is a reflection of how we eat. My family and I are eating more healthy lately, since it’s up to me to keep my infant daughter healthy. So, when I’ve gone to the store lately, I end up buying things I normally wouldn’t buy for myself, like carrots. Gross. I’ve […]

Green Bean, Potato and Kale Puree

My daughter loves to hold on to food and just gnaw at it. First, it was whole carrots and then it became long, steamed green beans. I would just pop one or two right into the Baby Bullet Steamer and she would have her favorite vegetable ready in minutes. She would just carry it around […]

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 […]

Blueberry and Chickpea Puree

Have you noticed that some baby purees sold in stores use yogurt or milk? What if your kiddos are lactose intolerant? Be safe and give your little one a dairy-free option until you know for sure! The combination of blueberries and chickpeas in this puree is a great substitution for dairy if your baby is intolerant, […]

Kale Apple Mango Puree

This is a creative blend of baby food. I came up with it one night when I needed to make my little one some food and this is all I had in the fridge. Don’t you just love those days when the fridge is dwindling empty and you have to find your creative juices in […]

Mango Lassi Puree

Mango Lassi is a delicious drink made with mangos and yogurt. Sounds yummy, right? I recreated this drink for my daughter, except I turned it into a filling first food puree that she could enjoy with a spoon. The addition of bananas and oats turned it into a heartier morning breakfast. This recipe is so […]

Spinach Butternut Squash Puree

When feeding my daughter Elle during her first food days, she loved anything yellow or orange. She couldn’t get enough butternut squash! If she was being picky, we always knew she’d eat that, no questions asked. Unfortunately for me, I can’t stand the smell of steamed butternut squash. That’s because one day, I forgot to add […]

Papaya Puree

At my house, we love tropical baby foods. I’m always mixing pineapple into savory foods or bananas in with peas. A good smash-up is our thing. Recently, I realized Elle hadn’t tried papaya fruit yet! This fruit is not my favorite because of its musky smell, but my mom loves it and, after trying it, so does […]
