Veggie Tots

Chicken, Carrot, and Tomato Puree

Do you have a picky little eater? There are adventurous eaters and eaters who play it safe by only eating the same few dishes. I know some toddlers who only want to eat mac n cheese for every meal and others who turn their nose up at the sight of any vegetable coming their way […]

Carrot Hummus

Hummus is one of my favorite snacks. It’s not just really tasty but also super healthy and packed full of protein. My toddler loves grabbing raw carrots and dipping them in hummus. So, I figured making hummus with carrots would be a nice change of pace for both of us. This recipe is perfect for […]

Baby Carrot and Quinoa Soup

After raising 3 kids, I’ve learned that as they grew and tried a new variety of foods, their sweet palate always trumped everything else.

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 […]
