Adventures in Baby Food
Our sweet baby has been enjoying various homemade baby foods for about two weeks now. It’s been so interesting to see her reactions to different tastes and textures. So far she has tasted rice cereal, butternut squash, carrots, sweet potatoes, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and broccoli.
We have learned some surprising things from this experience. For one, we were surprised to learn that despite their sweet and juicy consistency, berries are not her favorite food. We smiled to discover she preferred them mixed with banana and cereal. We also were secretly delighted at her love for the veggies — the sweet potato, carrot and butternut squash have been a big hit.
Broccoli, not surprisingly,is best mixed with another vegetable, but doesn’t go well on its own. And she does not like peas.
We were pleased to find Wholesome Baby Food had a cornicopia (accurate choice of words, no?) of information for us to peruse before deciding what to give Naomi. We have learned a lot so far and are excited to see what she will think of the next thing we give her.
Next week we’ll pick up some chickpeas, lentils, peaches, pears, avacados, oh my!
