Jare's food journey

It's always exciting when you start introducing semi-solids to a baby, at least to me. It's almost a month since Jareth began on it, and I'm ever searching for recipes to create yummies for his little tummy. Here are some food tried and tasted by him:
  • Cereal
  • Butternut squash
  • Carrot
  • Potato
  • Sweet potato
  • Parsnip
  • Pumpkin
  • Peas
  • Sweetcorn
  • Broccoli
  • Bean curd
  • Apple
  • Avocado
  • Banana
  • Pear
And from here, I do my 'equations' for blending:

Carrot + potato
Pumpkin + Bean curd
Butternut + peas/Spinach
Sweet potato + Carrot
Butternut + Parsnip + Spinach
Apple + Pear
Cereal + Banana
Potato + Sweet Corn + Peas
Potato + Broccoli
Avocado + cereal + milk
Avocado + Banana + milk

As days go by, I do run out of ideas, and the menu repeats. I don't prepare any food for freezing, unless I've much excess. I prefer freshly made meals though. On my work days, I'll tell my mum how and what to cook for Jare. Weekends are when I can explore a little more 'exotic' recipes for him.

Organic food are expensive stuff. Cereal is the only few organic food I could afford for him:


Colourful food journey:

Carrot puree
Spinach puree

Banana puree

I got this blender on loan from my colleague, it really is convenient to whip up his meals with it. Just steam, flip and blend. Saves time!

Avent blender.

The Verdict? A satisfied customer.

Little Popeye on spinach

Moving onto porridge and meat soon...
