Figuring out what to feed Jacob has been puzzling for me at times. When I was pregnant with him, I decided that when the time came, I would give him homemade baby food. The decision was easy, yet when the time did come, I admit I felt clueless about what to make Jacob and how to prepare it. Luckily in February I got a Fresh Baby So Easy Baby Food kit that had everything I needed to get started (minus the food). I immediately loved how simple and straightforward the Fresh Baby system is and as a result it's been my go-to guide. Plus, it has made me thoroughly enjoy preparing Jacob's meals!
Now it's August and I have an 11 month old on my hands with 4 teeth, a big appetite, and no desire to eat purees anymore. So here I am puzzled again, what can I give him that's a healthy table food, easy for him to chew and digest, and will bring some variety to his diet? When Fresh Baby asked me if I would be interested in trying their toddler cookbook, I said "YES!"
I absolutely love Fresh Baby So Easy Toddler Food because like their baby food cookbook, the recipes are simple, easy to follow, and taste great! A few other appealing features of the toddler cookbook are the colorful design, appetizing photos, and helpful recipe categories.
We tried a bunch of the recipes and a couple of our favorites are the banana bread and the broccoli and rice casserole. I make banana bread often, but I liked this recipe because when I added applesauce it was very moist and delicious, not to mention healthier than the recipes that call for butter or oil. The broccoli and rice casserole is a tasty side dish for the whole family. I appreciate when I can cook a dish that everyone will eat, because lately I've felt like I have to plan separate meals for Jacob. Not only did Jacob love the taste of the casserole, I did too! I highly recommend Fresh Baby So Easy Toddler Food for parents that are looking for healthy meals and snacks for their little ones!
