This puree is perfect as baby’s first food since it’s very light on a baby’s tummy. Have you ever fed plain cereals to your little ones? They tend to just spit them out because they are very bland. Well, lets add some flavor using fresh ingredients like avocado, paired with the natural sweetness of a nice, ripe pear. These two […]

Welcome to the whole grains party! This is one delicious porridge of a puree! Speaking of porridge, when starting out your little ones with food, you may think you want to start the rice cereal route.

Kiwi Popsicles

My 10-month-old daughter Elle is teething and, as any parent with a teething baby knows, cold chewables are great to help relieve some of the pain. Elle will gnaw on a frozen teething toy for a little bit, but will quickly lose interest. But, if I give her an ice cube, she will work on […]

Kiwi Peach Puree

Kiwi Peach Puree 1

I’ll never forget being a little girl, probably 4 or 5 years old, and riding around in the grocery cart at Winn Dixie, the market near our house. My Mother pushed the cart along and picked up this brown fuzzy thing in the produce aisle. She held it like a jewel and said, “It’s a […]

Babies love purees – mine did! We created so many different varieties and I loved experimenting with veggies, fruits and grains.

One […]

Carrot Blueberry Baby Puree

This combination of carrots and blueberries is something I stumbled upon. The juice from the blueberries make a great way to sweeten up a very tart or bland puree. We are still in the first foods stage with my daughter Elle. I am not that adventurous yet with spices like cinnamon or salt, but I […]

Welcome to the one vegetable that Elle, my 7-month old daughter, HATES! You should see her face as she goes through several stages of emotion. First, she’s amused, then she’s disgusted, and finally she gives me a “How dare you?” face. This kid already has so much personality. I really can’t stop laughing. So for our […]

I am a new mother to a very active 7-month-old. Last month, I started her on purees. I wanted to start off the right way and make sure that I was doing this whole “introduction to first foods” correctly. The first food I fed her were bananas. Bananas are packed with B6 vitamins, diary fiber and […]
