B-A-B-Y Foods

Been a real long time, well its been years I posted anything new or updated this blog. In fact I did not care to even wander and peek at the site, but it often tickled my mind that I should return to blog because frankly I loved it when I did it and now I want to experience the same again!

To mark my return and to make a note of how things have drastically changed in the years that I'm been away, I have in this post a few baby foods. I'm just listing the ingredients for each dish not any exact specifics on measure. I started to feed boiled and blended food to my LO at 6months.

A few things that I add to every of her meal - 1 spoon ghee, pinch salt, 2 pinches turmeric and pinch of ajwain powder(bishop's weed, caraway, carom seeds). Also I use the water that is used for boiling either to blend the food or put it away in fridge for later use.

Here it goes....

 Drinks(fresh made) 
orange\mandarin juice - slice up vertically, remove rind, blend and drain. Dilute with water. 
water melon juice - de-seed, blend and drain
grape juice - blend, drain and keep aside the remains. Nutritious can be used with cereal.

snow peas - boil, blend and drain. Add pinch salt, butter and turmeric.
apple + sweet potato - When these are boiled for meals they leave a lot of flavored water, which can be used as broth.

raspberry + cereal 
papaya + cereal 
plum + cereal 
apple + almond 
grapes juiced remains + cereal  
cantaloupe + cereal 
melon + cereal
bajra powder + turmeric+ ghee + jaggery + water + milk  (bajra - Pearl Millet)
     -- slightly roast 2 spoons bajra powder 
     -- add 1 spoon ghee and 1 spoon jaggery
     -- once the jaggery melts, add turmeric and 1/4 cup water (add as needed for desired consistency)
     -- mix few spoons of milk before feeding.

Papaya + kale + carrot + milk

It'll keep going for a few more months to come.... she has started to eat most bland table food, which includes Olive Garden bread and minestrone soup! Looking forward for the days when she and myself are going to sit cuddled on the sofa watching a random cartoon, with a big bowl of popcorn and some warm brownie to finish off with.....

This is such a great resource that you are providing and you give it away for free. I love seeing websites that understand the value of providing a quality resource for free. It?s the old what goes around comes around routine. Did you acquired lots of links and I see lots of trackbacks??
