Did you know that eggs contain, in varying amounts, almost every essential vitamin and mineral needed by humans as well as several other beneficial food components*? Now that’s what I’m looking for in a baby food!
I introduced Little Bean to the egg yolk a little while ago and it didn’t go quite as I expected, BUT I did get him to eat it. Total win in my book…
Mommy and Me Eggs
This is a tradition I started with Big Brother. Baby gets yolk and I get the extra white.
Cook the Egg.
I add a splash of water to the yolk and scramble. Then cook in a small non-stock skillet and fold over like an omelet. I also fry up whatever vegetables I have in the fridge and makes myself an omelet with an egg and the extra white.
After the egg cools cut it in pieces and see what happens. Little Bean a went right for it!
He wasn’t quite sure what to make of the new texture.
Meh It came right back out of his mouth.
If at first you don’t succeed…
I decided to mash the egg and see if he’d take it by spoon.
His reaction was priceless!
Ok, I know it sounds gross but I also knew the only reason he wasn’t eating the egg was because of texture. Why not add it to something more familiar?
He LOVED it.
He ate an entire egg yolk mixed with about 1/4 cup of full fat yogurt.
But he wanted something I had. So I gave it to him….
He’s got a long way to go before mastering the spoon and bowl
Maybe not that long.
Cute Baby with Spoon.
Makes me smile every time.
Update: Little Bean now LOVES his 2 egg omelet in omelet form. It just took him a few weeks to get used to it. :)
