Sauteed Zucchini Puree – Baby Food Recipe, not just for Baby
How often do parent’s purchase already made baby food pouches, cans, containers, and did you know that they make them for toddlers too? In fact they even make them for us. Most people these days purchase prepacked, prepared foods. It’s a serious epidemic, but that’s a different post.
Since a young age my daughter has been eating with us despite her FPIES food triggers her diet is like any other toddler. Unless.. you’re talking about toddlers who eat all processed food, and even those organic pouches are processed to me. I think she’s had one pouch food ever and it tasted horrid. NOTHING like if I would have made it homemade.
She has crazy textural issues thanks to her food allergy so we still puree a few things to make it more approachable. While doing her puree I actually puree it for all of us. One of my favorite side dishes is sauteed vegetables. I love zucchini, tomatoes, and mushrooms! It’s probably my favorite vegetable combination. Lately my girl loves to eat all by herself and honestly we never did the spoon feeding thing and jumped right in with baby led weaning.
“I may be a toddler, but I still like real food!”
Also, my girl is growing up like crazy. This morning she counted down from 3 to 1 of course I’m tell her you start with one…she responds by counting from 1-11. Shocked. She’s growing up way too fast and I’m enjoying it all. I’m so very blessed.
