This versatile compote can be served to baby for breakfast, lunch or dinner, depending on the accompaniments. For a change of pace from cinnamon, try a pinch of ground cardamom or nutmeg.
Apple and Pear Compote
Avocado Banana Mash
Babies need a high fat diet to develop properly. Avocados are full of heart-healthy unsaturated fat, and contain vitamin C, riboflavin and thiamine. You can mash the bananas and avocado completely or leave chunkier depending on your baby’s comfort level.
Little Blueberry Parfaits
At 18 months, your baby wants to feed herself. Give her this for breakfast and watch her go! The puffed wheat in this breakfast parfait is naturally very soft and softens further when layered in with yogurt and thawed berries.
Little Oatmeal Blueberry Muffins
Two little mini muffins are a perfect breakfast portion for a toddler. If placing two blueberries on top of each mini muffin is too time-consuming for you, just stir them into the batter. Freeze remaining muffins for another day, or share with the whole family.
Smooth Sweet Potato Soup
A warm lunch that’s easy to make for baby, and mom can enjoy some too! Cinnamon is a good “starter spice” for babies. Store leftovers in the refrigerator or freeze in ice cube trays for easy portioning later on.
If Mom wants to transform this delicious baby mash into a breakfast smoothie, she can add additional apple juice. Try portioning it into servings and refrigerating leftovers for a quick meal later in the week.
