It’s true. Sometimes I feed my baby things I’d never eat and, well, actually find gross. This is one of them, but when you look at from a growing baby nutritional standpoint I’m totally justified. At least I think am.
According to NutritionData.com, 1 large egg yolk has just over 50 calories, 5 g of fat and 3 g of protein. It’s also a good source of Folate and Vitamin B12. Mix one in with a sweet banana and a dollop of yogurt and you’ve got yourself a nice little meal for baby. Will he eat it? Find out in our next Baby Food Adventure….
We Start off with a Waffle Appetizer.
These were made with my quick whole grain banana pancake batter (click here for recipe.) It's a favorite of Big Brothers and he's joining us for breakfast this morning. (note: he may be the only kid who likes jelly on his waffles.)
Little bean really likes these and he's getting very good at feeding himself.
Although he's not quite ready for a plate.
Hard Boiled Egg
While he's eating I peel the egg. The few times he's been given the white he had a small skin reaction so I'm sticking with yolks for now. Click here for a video on how I make the easiest peeled eggs ever.
1 banana minus a bite from me, 1 egg yolk, 2 dollops of full fat yogurt and a squire of baby vitamins. MMmmmm Yum. *gag*
Mash and Mix
No extra equipment needed besides a folk and bowl!
Are we Ready?
He was in a very contemplative mood this morning.
Eating is now the only time he sucks his thumb. It's weird and cute and makes me smile.
He's getting awfully handy with that cup.
Done with the Drink and….
Off it goes! WHY do kids do that? The drink is not welcome on the tray unless he's thirsty. It cracks me up.
You mean it's all gone? 🙁
Hmmm Then What Shall I Do?
I know! Stare at Big Brother....
He ate 4 waffles!
Oh! and the fan.
Oh how I love that fan.
Don't waste the White!
Sprinkle that baby with salt and pepper and enjoy!
Yet another adventure that ends in a happy, messy baby. Now if I could only get him to eat like this ALL the time.
