I usually make a lot of food in one go, and just freeze it. I had back ups as well. But in the last month, I’ve been procrastinating, so she hasn’t had much variety. But I must provide her with more options, not just banana and blueberries and banana yogurt. So tonight I made her the following:
- Broiled Flounder (broiled an extra fillet for her as DH was making dinner) with steamed zucchini and yellow squash.
- Rolled oats with dried prunes and apricots, and adding fresh apple and pear
- Veggie Puree with left over steamed zucchini and yellow squash as well as sweet yams
There is also some leftover stuff in the freezer:
- Pasta with meat sauce
- Banana and blueberries
- And of course Stonyfield Farm YoBaby Yogurt http://www.stonyfield.com/
But lately she has not been eating anything that is not fruit. I had been struggling with feeding her veggies and meat for more than a month. I mentioned to V at daycare, and she says, “I actually mush the fruit you give me with her meat and veggies, and she eats it.” I was like GENIUS!!! So the next weekend, O had talapia with roasted sweet potato and banana. Gross! But she ate it like it was the best thing ever.
PS Sometimes I wonder how much money we saved by making O her food every day?
PSS Just FYI… I do have an emergency stash of Beechnut Baby Food when I am too lazy to make her food.
