Salmon Finger Food

I came across this fun Salmon-baby-led-weaning recipe the other day with my toddler. The best bonding I think you can do as a parent is having your baby, toddler, or teenager help you in the kitchen. Try giving a job that they can manage and that is age appropriate. When they are just a baby […]

Asparagus, Carrot, and Apple Purée

My secret to getting my toddler to eat vegetable purées is adding a sweet fruit to the mix. It works every time! In this asparagus and carrot blend, I add an organic gala apple to sweeten it up. My daughter is crazy about apples, so she loves the flavor it adds to this vegetable purée. […]

Banana Agave Nectar

We all know that bananas are a great first food to feed your 4-6 month old baby. Bananas are smooth, can be easily mashed, and are easy on the stomach. Plus, they’re great for treating constipation. The banana makes the best first food because of its texture. A baby can move this smooth banana around […]

Beet Banana Mango Spinach Puree

Growing up beets had the reputation of being a vegetable that my grandmother loved to eat. Like all great grandmothers she expected her grandkids to also enjoy the brightly purple root vegetable. I was not a fan. Until I became a mother and discovered how nutritional they were. Beets are stocked with a wonderful amount […]

Roasted Carrot and Fennel Purée

One of my favorite veggie combinations is carrot and fennel. Roasting them in the oven with some olive oil and cumin brings out the most delicious flavor. My toddler is now on finger foods pretty much full time, but loves this purée more than eating the roasted chopped vegetables. Whenever we make this side for […]

Squash, Zucchini, and Carrot Puree

My fridge is full of squash and zucchini so I love using the extra to make baby food purees. The squash blends easily creating a texture that’s perfect for a baby trying out new foods! You can switch up the mixture and do all zucchini or all squash too! Squash, Zucchini, and Carrot Puree Ingredients […]

Papaya Pineapple Spinach and Banana

While researching new purees to feed my baby, I am always conscious of using organic fresh foods because I then know exactly what my baby will be eating. Not knowing where the baby food jars were manufactured or what is used to preserve the flavor to last longer makes me nervous. I know later in […]

Carrot Peas Pear Puree

Carrots, peas, and pear are a perfect combo for your baby’s first foods. I would start trying these ingredients (one at a time) around the 4-6 month mark. The more you feed that one particular ingredient to your baby, the more you can mix and pair into a fun medley. Always remember that when feeding […]

Yogurt, Avocado, and Banana Puree

I love baby food blended with yogurt because my baby always seemed to prefer it over anything else! This is a great puree that gives your baby a subtle sweetness from the banana, healthy fats from the avocado, and protein from the yogurt. Yogurt, Avocado, and Banana Puree Ingredients 1 cup plain, whole fat yogurt […]

Creamy Coconut Apple Puree

This is a yummy and delicious treat that your baby is going to love! The coconut offers a great serving of healthy fats, while the apple gives it that subtle sweetness. You can freeze it in ice cube trays and blend it up later for an ice cream consistency! Creamy Coconut Apple Puree Ingredients 1/2 […]
