Egg Yolk & Avocado Omelet

Egg whites are usually added later on in a baby’s diet, but that doesn’t mean they can’t still enjoy a yummy omelet. The yolks make this omelet super rich and tender, perfect for your baby’s teeth that are just coming in. The mashed avocado in the middle is also soft enough for baby to chew. […]

How I Sneak Veggies Into Everything

  I have a confession to make: I’m a sneak. I’m a liar. I lie and cheat to my children, through food. That’s right. I confess. You’ve caught me red-handed. I have been sneaking spinach and avocado in my son’s banana smoothies for years. Whatever extra protein I can find, whether it’s powdered or in […]

Strawberry Beet Popsicles

Every time I go to the grocery store, my kids beg me to buy popsicles. They love to sit outside and eat them as they play in the backyard. I admit, I love them too because it keeps them busy. But usually store bought popsicles are full of sugar and other additives, so every once […]

Sweet Potato Noodle Soup

Whenever I make soup for my kids, they always pick out the vegetables and meat. Then they just sip the broth and eat the noodles. I get so frustrated because they refuse to eat sometimes the most nutritious part of the soup! I mean, who doesn’t love soft carrots ;). This soup will solve all […]

Broccoli and Olive Oil Puree

My 2-and-a-half year old daughter has a love/hate relationship with broccoli. Some days she will eat half a stock of steamed broccoli while other days she turns a sour face away and refuses. My husband and I have at times resorted to using her favorite fruit gummy as bribery to get her to eat her […]

Carrot Zucchini Banana Bread

Once your baby is able to eat breads, this carrot zucchini banana bread is a nutritious snack for him or her. It is made with freshly grated zucchini and carrot, and intense banana flavor. I also use whole wheat flour instead of all-purpose flour to give it more fiber. You can control how much sugar […]

Baby’s Spiced Lentil Stew

It’s always a fun new stage when your baby moves from eating pureed veggies and fruits to actually chewing foods with texture. This stew is the perfect transition for your child because you can make it as smooth or as chunky as your baby’s needs change and grow. It will also introduce your baby to […]

Apple Spinach Pear and Blueberry Purée

I love preparing homemade purées for my baby. There is something about watching the process of nutritious, whole foods being cooked, blended up, and finally eaten by my baby that gives me a good feeling inside. Preparing nutritious purées for your baby is not only healthy for your baby, but also very easy to do! […]

Sweet Potato, Apple, & Spinach Puree

Spinach has always been my favorite green vegetable to use because it has a very mild taste. Any sweeter type fruit or vegetable could easily cover up the spinach taste. Thankfully for this puree, between the sweet potato and apple, your baby won’t even notice they are getting a healthy source of vitamin K! Sweet […]

Baby’s Cheesy Broccoli

I don’t think any child gets super excited about broccoli for dinner, unless you add cheese sauce! This is the perfect new recipe for your young one! Cut up your broccoli into small pieces so that it’s easy for babies to pick up on their own and chew. Toss in the yummy cheese and vegetable […]
