There is something so simple and easy breezy about being able to make baby food right when your little one is giving you those 'you better be doing something in that kitchen that involves making me food' eyes. You just cut, slice and smash and wah lah, you have a great chunky puree ready to be devoured. How wonderful is that!?!
Smash and Serve!
SMASH and Serve!!
SMASH and SERVE!!!
This will be my fight song, accompanied of course with a full marching band and choreographed dance, for my next little one, especially when I am on the go with 2 little kids. Toss a cut avocado, melon or pear into the diaper bag and then give the big chunks to Little Miss E and smash some up for the littler one for a perfect healthy snack.
It's not weird that I am already dreaming about what I am going to give my un-born baby, is it? Yes. Hmm…I will have to deal with that.
3 Baby Foods You Can Make with a Fork
Take desired amount of food and smash with a fork. If melon or pear are not extremely ripe, then place in microwave for 30-60 seconds. This will make it easier to smash them together.
Best served the day of smashing.
