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.
