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, […]

Pancake Mix Orange Date Bread

Date puree is one of my favorite alternatives to mashed or pureed bananas. It’s equally sweet and totally versatile, which means you can replace any banana puree with date puree! This bread is subtly sweet, with a hint of citrus. I made it for my girls to have as a quick snack when they want […]

The Breakup: Letters Between the Avocado & the Peach

Dear Avocado, This has been the most amazing summer! I never thought I would meet someone like you. From the first time we crossed paths at that Memorial Day party to today, my life has been changed. I’m really looking forward to our future together! Love, Peach   Dear Peach, Hey, sweetie. Loved your note. But […]

Sweet Corn Quiche

My toddler loves this sweet corn quiche for breakfast, lunch or dinner. For a busy mom, it is one of my favorite dishes to whip up, because it only requires a few ingredients and very little time. Find a pre-made pastry shell and frozen corn at the grocery store to cut down even more time. […]

I love these popsicles because they taste like chocolate fudge, but have a secret veggie ingredient that no one would even guess! […]

  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 […]

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, […]

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 […]

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 […]
