New Years Puree

Happy New Years! Let’s start this new year with all the good luck we can get! So, as my mom always says, “Eat your black-eyed peas for good luck.” Or wait! Was this a trick to get me to eat my veggies?

Anyways, I paired this puree with spaghetti squash. Squash of any kind is a perfect first food puree for your little baby. Squash are full of vitamins and the texture is smooth. I started playing around pureeing for my daughter’s first foods around the 6th month mark. I felt she was more aware of what was going on with her motor skills verses the 4-5 month mark. Although it really is up to the parent and how they feel their baby will do. Feeding your baby for the first time is a great was to bond with them. They see you having fun therefore they will have fun. They see you having confidence and they will feel that confidence too. So, Happy New Year to you and your baby!
