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. […]

Apple, Spinach, and Cherry Puree

My oldest was a horrible teether. Nothing would help; she was always fussy and loved to chew on everything. The best thing for her, and us, was cold food. She loved apples, carrots, or anything that would fit in her mesh food holder so she could safely chew. Smoothies became a life saver because of […]

Strawberry Apple Carrot Purée

When I am preparing purées, I like to combine both fruit and vegetables so that we get all of the recommended servings in for the day. I have been making purées this way ever since we tested everything individually on my daughter to make sure she didn’t have any food allergies. In this mixed purée, […]

Black Bean and Oatmeal Puree

I broke down the other day and just grabbed a handful of pre-made baby foods (organic, of course). Don’t judge me. Which I know you would never. Those things come in handy while driving on the road or at the park. Because we all know when a kid is hungry they get hungry fast! Out […]

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 […]

Carrot Apple Ginger Puree

I have a 13-month old who loved carrots as a baby. I would steam them, then puree them up in my Baby Bullet and she couldn’t eat enough of them. Even when she started cutting those top and bottom teeth, I would hand her a steamed baby carrot and she would gnaw her way through it. […]

Baked Cinnamon Apple

Nothing says Thanksgiving like the sinfully delicious and simple flavors of apple and cinnamon. I am currently in the throes of putting all those freshly picked apples to good use before the snow descends upon New England and we replace our pole pickers with snow shovels. This year, I have been having a great time playing […]

Mango Apple Carrot Puree

If you can make your baby’s food fresh, meaning it retains more vitamins since it’s not living in a jar for weeks – maybe even months – and it would cost a fraction of the price, wouldn’t it be better to make your own?! I bought three organic items for this recipe. The mango was […]
