Purees & Textures

Purees & Textures The classes are a great way to learn what and how to feed your babies seasonal ingredients and start them on a healthy eating regimen.

Feeding your little one can be challenging. Do we start with cereals, what purees, or do we let them learn to feed themselves? Or maybe all of the above. If you want to learn how to make food to feed your baby at any stage from first foods to toddler meals, I will teach you quick, nutritious, tasty and affordable meals. Weekly delivery in Hoboken is also available. For more information, contact me at [email protected].

Looking for a nutrient packed ingredient to add to your purées? Try chickpeas (AKA garbanzo beans). They add great texture, are mild in flavor so they can be added to
veggies and fruit, and are packed with protein, zinc, folate, and iron. Talk with your pediatrician first, but chickpeas may be introduced between 6-8 months.

Yogurt is a great ingredient to give to your little foodie. Choose a whole fat yogurt as they need the fat for proper growth. It's best to buy the plain and mix in your own fruits and veggies. If you buy a pre-mixed brand, watch the sugar. 4 grams of sugar is equivalent to 1 teaspoon of sugar.

Some if our favorite combinations:

Banana and avocado

Apple and cinnamon

Blend with fruit and greens and thinned with water or unfiltered apple juice for a sippy cup "smoothie"

Carrots and peaches or apricot

We are getting back in the swing of things. Orders will be filled beginning the end of next week. Keep in mind we are here for you and do weekly, bi-weekly and monthly orders. The purées are perfect for beginners to food connoisseurs!

One-on-one and group classes will begin in February. The classes are a casual but informative way to learn what and how to feed your little foodie. Get your girlfriends together and spend and hour or so chatting and learning - the best part is you go home with a weeks worth of purées.

Is your little foodie tired of plain ol' steamed sweet potato? Try roasting and adding cinnamon. Roasting brings out the natural sugars of the sweet potato and cinnamon has many health benefits and when added to food it acts as a natural preservative because it has anti-bacterial properties.

Purée adding about 1/4 cup of the soaking liquid to get a smooth consistency. This method also works with other dried fruit like apricots.

Looking to add protein to your little foodies diet? This recipe is suited for 6-9 month foodies. As always, check with your doctor.

This recipe will also work with leftover turkey!

Saute 1/2 small onion, chopped with one large peeled and cut carrot and one apple, cored, peeled and chopped in a pot with about 1/2 tablespoon of good quality extra-virgin olive oil. Cook until the onion is soft and translucent, about 5-7 minutes. Pour 8 oz of unsalted organic chicken stock (feel use turkey stock), bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer for 8-10 minutes. Add 1 boneless skinless organic chicken breast cut into pieces and cook until the chicken is cooked through, about 10 minutes. If using leftover turkey, add and just cook until warmed through, 3-5 minutes. Puree. Makes about 5 servings.

Feel free to change up the flavor by adding a bay leaf (remove before pureeing), thyme or rosemary.

Bon Appetite!!

This is the question I get asked most: What are binding and non-binding foods?

Foods to help babies with diarrhea:
Banana, rice or rice cereal, applesauce, white potato, carrots, and plain yogurt

Foods to avoid giving babies with diarrhea:
Plums, spinach, peaches, mangoes, prunes, peas, pears, apricots, oats, any dairy (yogurt is ok because of the probiotic)

As always, consult your pediatrician if you have any questions.

Did you go apple picking and want a recipe for your kiddo? How about roasted apples and cinnamon (good for babies who have tried simple purees @ 6-8 months)

4 large apples, halved and cored ( think sweet apples like Rome, Gala, Empire, Red Delicious, Pink Lady)
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (if you have not rotated your spices, now is the time to go out and buy a new)

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Arrange the apples, cut-side down, on a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil. Roast the apples until fork tender, 20-25 minutes.

Immediately transfer the apples to the blender, remember hot foods puree best. Add the cinnamon and pulse until smooth. Cool to room temperature before serving or cool completely and freeze in individual containers.

Want to learn more combos? Banana, Mango and Avocado? Or Parnsip and Pear? What about Spinach, Banana and Avocado? Or how about Green Bean, Potato and Kale? Combo Puree classes will be announced this weekend! Or email me to book your own private class or girl's night in class! [email protected]

Why is it important to give your baby fresh baby food?

Taste for your self and compare freshly mashed carrots to a jar of carrot baby food from your local grocery store. Even though they are the same food, they don’t look, smell or taste the same. Yes it is true, your baby does not have the same palate you do, but he/she does respond to taste, color, and smell. Beyond that, what I think is even more important is the fact that processed baby foods have added water, sugars, preservatives, and starchy fillers. Processed baby foods are also cooked at high temperatures to kill bacteria, but bacteria is not the only thing eliminated in this process; vitamins and nutrients are also destroyed. Why feed your little one foods that have been on a shelf for months, when you can learn how to make baby food or have it delivered fresh by me!
