Finger Food Meals
I call these all purpose meatballs, I cook a big batch and freeze it so that I always have them in hand for busy days. you can serve them as finger food, you can add them to vegetable purees, you can add them to tomato sauces, I use the boil water as stock and cook my sons pasta and rice in it for flavor!
Sneaky vegetable egg frittatas. A great way to add all kind of veggies into one meal, a very nutritious finger food. [8m+] I’d give this in small baby bites also knowing my son is not allergic to eggs. Great for the whole family to enjoy. Recipe Makes a whole baking dish. Use half the measurements if its just for you and your baby.
Toddler food idea – Spring Rolls Stuffed with Turkey and glass noodles . Ideal as a self-feeding toddler meal. Also turkey is a great source of iron which toddlers and babies needs a lot of under the age of 2.
Baked tri-colored carrots great as a side dish to toddler meals as well as babies practicing self-feeding. sprinkle some dry herbs and serve as is.
Toddler/baby food idea
My son had this for lunch:
– Flat bread with hummus spread
– Chia pudding made on Greek yoghurt that I’ve mixed with strawberries
– A whole very ripe nectarine. I’m aware of the stone in the nectarine I just remove it when he is about to reach the middle of it lol. I’m right in front of him.
Would serve this at [8m+] just cut into smaller bites.
Remember the nectarine has to be organic it’s on the dirty dozen list.
Cut them into smaller finger bites and they will be great for babies!
Eating finger food is fun and important to your baby’s development of fine motor skills and coordination like the pincer grasp
