It's so simple:
Prepare organic fruits/veggies for cooking (peel if necessary)
Place in steamer basket
Steam the heck out of what you are cooking
Reserve your cooking water
Dump the steamed fruit/veggies into the food processor or blender and blend away
Add cooking liquid to make desired thickness/texture
Plop into a few ice cube trays and freeze
Ta da! You have just made your baby a healthy meal that he or she is going to love! Don't forget to take pictures of your little one enjoying your creations!
I found that my son really enjoyed spices and seasonings right off the bat. (Of course, make sure your child can tolerate the food alone before adding a spice.) For example:
- Peas - fresh mint (from my Dad's garden)
- Sweet potatoes - cinnamon
- Squash - nutmeg
- Chicken/turkey - sage
We really want to encourage Kieran to enjoy different flavors and textures. No one likes a picky eater!
