play: stuffed fruits and vegetables

in order start introducing each fruit and vegetable to k, i looked for toys that would help k recognize them. there were plastic versions but i didn’t want k to put plastic in her mouth all of the time. then i found this stuffed toy set online. what made me decide was that they are machine washable so i can clean them often.

introducing new foods: parsnip

parsnip is another food i never ate before. like many others i always thought it was in the same family as carrots because they look alike but they are actually not in the same family.parsnip

taste wise, they are a little sweet but is more reminiscent of a potato than carrot, which may be due to its high starch content. they also have a nice flavor.

another aspect about parsnips is its nice aroma that comes out when you are steaming. it smells like bread when it’s baking. mmmmmm. yummy! Continue reading “introducing new foods: parsnip”

when i make the dishes for k i do taste it to make sure the flavor is ok. like the butternut squash and banana combo, the zucchini and banana combines into a recognizable flavor: honey dew! now, i’m not the greatest fan of honey dew but it was a fun discovery. how fun!

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.

recipe: banana and butternut squash

making food for k has been relatively easy since it’s mostly boiling, baking and mixing. but it is fun to discover new tidbits, i.e.:

introducing organic bananas

most foods, including vegetables and fruits, that we fed k so far have to be cooked first. the only vegetable we didn’t have to cook was avocado. the second is the fruit we’re giving her next: the banana. like the avocado, when exposed to the air banana’s color changes quickly to an unappetizing gray so prepare it just when you are about to feed the baby.

bananas are not part of the “dirty dozen” list because the inside fruit itself is protected by its thick skin. but the many of the chemicals that are sprayed onto conventional banana trees harm the workers who pick them. *read note
