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 […]

Tuna and Cucumber with Fresh Dill Puree

This is for those adventurous little eaters who are 18-months or older. I’m sure you are thinking tuna? I never would of thought to feed my baby fish. Specialists say babies can eat fish, including canned tuna, after they turn 6 months. Now, I know a lot of people are concerned about mercury in tuna, […]

Healthy Squash Puree

Do you like Greek yogurt? I love it! A lot of my friends enjoy it too but usually only during breakfast. This creamy and tangy goodness shouldn’t be limited to only a morning dish, especially when so many things can pair great with it. Apple and cinnamon is a popular pair. Your favorite fresh fruit […]

Blueberry Protein Puree

I love this recipe because my little Elle loves it! Packed full of protein, it helps her feel full in the morning. And the added natural sweetness from the fruit gives her energy before daycare. Blueberries are packed with antioxidants and, even though they’re low in sugar, they taste sweet, too! Like blueberries, quinoa is […]

Cauliflower, Yogurt and Chia Puree

I was fortunate that one of my best friends and I had babies around the same time. We did everything together and loved that our daughters were experiencing new things together. Jill and I would load up our girls in their strollers and walk for miles along the beautiful California bluffs in Santa Monica, trying […]

Mango Lassi Puree

Mango Lassi is a delicious drink made with mangos and yogurt. Sounds yummy, right? I recreated this drink for my daughter, except I turned it into a filling first food puree that she could enjoy with a spoon. The addition of bananas and oats turned it into a heartier morning breakfast. This recipe is so […]

Spinach Butternut Squash Puree

When feeding my daughter Elle during her first food days, she loved anything yellow or orange. She couldn’t get enough butternut squash! If she was being picky, we always knew she’d eat that, no questions asked. Unfortunately for me, I can’t stand the smell of steamed butternut squash. That’s because one day, I forgot to add […]

Breakfast Quinoa & Greek Yogurt Puree

I feel like I’m always making a big pot of quinoa to add to my kale or cucumber greek salads. I often have a little left over, so I decided to add it to my daughter’s puree and see what she thought of this little ancient super grain. This superfood is actually great for everyone in the […]

Broccoli Kiwi Puree

Babies love purees – mine did! We created so many different varieties and I loved experimenting with veggies, fruits and grains. The day we discovered apricots together was interesting, to say the least. The purees never stayed in her mouth and we had to change clothes each time; I kept trying, but she was not having it. One […]
