introducing new foods: zucchini

zucchini is part of the squash family so water used to steam can be reused for diluting other foods. it doesn’t take long to steam since it softens quickly.

recipe: banana and avocado

now that k started bananas, i tried the recipe in Wholesome Baby Food Guide: “Banana ‘Cado”. this one is especially easy since you don’t have to cook either food! just make sure to prepare the dish right before feeding otherwise the color of both will change to an unappetizing color rather quickly.
