Baby friendly family meals are a must for any busy mom or dad. Modifying your meals to suit baby’s needs is not as difficult as you may think. No need to purchase specific food for baby; simply prepare for baby a modified version of your family meal, whether it be removing baby’s portion prior to adding specific ingredients, pureeing, mashing, or chopping finely.
Helpful Tips for Preparing Baby’s Food:
- Remove baby’s portion before adding salt or other spices.
- Add some homemade or organic vegetable broth or milk (depending on the meal) to facilitate pureeing, if necessary.
- Always make extra! That leftover portion might not be enough for you but might be the perfect portion size for baby.
Here are some delicious family meals that can be easily modified to suit baby’s taste buds and/or age.
*As always, consult your pediatrician for more info on when to introduce specific solids to baby.
