Hawaiian Snapper Puree

Hawaiian Snapper 1

Fish is such a wonderful protein for babies, but most parents are intimidated to cook it for their little ones. Even as a child, the only time we had fish was when it was cooked under the broiler and it stunk up the whole house (sorry, Mom)! Most white fish have a more mellow flavor and can […]

Halibut with Summer Vegetables

Halibut with Summer Veggies 1

I love making this puree in the summer when all the beautiful vegetables are popping up at the farmers market, but now that it’s a little later in the season, making it can still be a breeze! Use frozen vegetables instead, since these can be easily found organic year-round. The flavors in this recipe are so […]

I love cooking with tofu. It’s incredibly versatile and is packed with protein, iron, calcium and fatty acids. People all over the world have been eating it for centuries, due in part to its healthful benefits. This recipe is delicious.

Apples are one of those fruits that make the […]

Broccoli Potato Cheese

Broccoli Potato Cheese Puree

When I’m trying to come up with new baby food purees, I have several unspoken criteria that I always try and must meet: I want to make something that tastes smooth and creamy, but also provides as much visual interest and nutritional value as possible! There are certain foods, like broccoli, that meet almost all […]

Oatmeal Almond Banana Puree

Oatmeal Almond Banana Puree

Oats are among the most nutritious grains you can give your baby. They have a higher level of protein (15-20 percent higher) than other grains and contain good levels of polyunsaturated fats. These fats include linoleic acid which is part of the omega-6 fatty acid family, which helps support a strong immune system and healthy […]

Chicken and Corn with Cilantro Puree

Chicken Corn and Cilantro

I always recommend that you keep a little garden of herbs growing (if your weather permits) so you can trim a few pieces off at times to jazz up a recipe, even if it’s just for baby. Or maybe I should say, especially if it’s for your baby! I feel like we don’t give kids […]
