Adventures in Healthier Eating with 2 Kids and a Picky Husband

Yo Baby is Good but this is Better!

Recently we’ve introduced yogurt and mixed it with some homemade puree. He likes it. Although you really can’t tell from the photos. Can you say “MOOOODY”….

A Little Appetizer.
This is a quick homemade teether. That adventure is coming soon!

Baby Food: Lentil 01

Started with a Ripe Pear.
Big Brother LOVES pears, except when they get bruised up. Little Bean doesn’t seem to mind yet. :)

Baby Food: Lentil 01

Leave the Skin On.
I leave the skin intact and cut off the flesh.

Baby Food: Lentil 03

Puree.
Plop in the blender, small food processor, or bullet. Mine was so ripe it didn’t require water but a dash wouldn’t hurt to get things started.

Prepare the Yogurt

Baby Food: Lentil 04

Make sure it’s full fat.
I used greek for the higher protein content, but my doctor said any full fat is good.

Baby Food: Lentil 06

Add the Pear Puree.

Baby Food: Lentil 07

Swirl.
I like leaving ribbons of the puree. It makes it pretty. :)

Taste Test Time

Yikes!
Actually. It wasn’t the yogurt at all. He was just in a MOOD.

Baby Food: Lentil 10

Empty Bowl.
Content, full baby. I don’t quite want to say happy. He really was having an off day.

Baby Food: Lentil 11

Wash it down.
He’s been having sips of water after meals.

Baby Food: Lentil 12

Back to the Teether.
Just a little messier. ;)

    Thanks for doing this series! I'm looking forward to trying out some of these recipes when my baby-to-be (5 weeks to go!) is ready for solids. Reply

    I am loving all your ideas and recipes!! We started solids about a month ago and I've been getting bored feeding him the same sweet potatoes, avocado/pear purees, so I'm really excited to try new stuff from here! I was curious to where you found full-fat yogurt? I can't seem to find any plain, full-fat yogurt anywhere. I recently made some home made and it went really well, but if I ever need to purchase some in a pinch, I would appreciate you sharing where you found some! Most greek yogurt or plain yogurt I found was all non-fat! Thank you!! Reply
