These mini pizzas are sure to be a hit with your toddler. If your toddler likes cooked broccoli, peas or spinach, add them before baking.
Wholesome Chicken Carrot and Brown Rice Puree
If you’re making chicken breasts for the entire family, throw an extra one on to use in this pureed baby food. Alternatively, you can use leftover roast chicken or poached chicken breast. Chicken is often one of the first meats recommended for babies’ diets, as it is easily digested.
Silky Quinoa and Squash
Make quinoa for supper and pull out 1 cup of it to make this dinner for baby. Quinoa is an ancient grain that is high in protein. Store leftovers in individual portion sizes for use in the following days; freezing it in ice cube trays makes for easy portioning later on. Don’t give up if your child doesn’t seem to like quinoa, or any other specific food- you need to expose children to a new flavour up to ten times before they take to it.
Cooked quinoa replaces rice in this twist on Chinese fried rice. The quinoa can be cooked well in advance and added at the last minute. This is a great way to use up left over vegetables. Don’t be afraid to add your favourites and make it your own!
