Some fruity treats for Elijah…
He just loves fruit, we give him fruit puree’s, fruit ice’s and of course whole fruit to help his hand-eye co ordination. His favourite at the moment is Mango or the Mango and Strawberry.
So easy and cheap to make, with the added bonus of knowing there are no horrible preservatives.
Today, I’m introducing egg yolk again. Egg yolk alone was given to him about 2 months ago and developed rashes on his chest and stomach. So far so good. I mixed egg yolk and avocado together with some milk and he enjoyed it.
A few examples of the meals I make for Elijah. We have been doing a combination of both Baby Led feeding and Puree Led feeding. It is going really well so far, Elijah is doing well with both methods. It is so easy to make your own meals instead of using the preservative packed jars. These I just made with what I had in the house already, it’s that easy.
Keep posted for more Puree ideas…
(Please excuse the fact that Potato, is spelt with an E at the end, the app I used for the photo kept changing it. I have no idea why?!)
Grace is such a passive eater… She will eat/try just about anything if I hold it while she takes a bite… But she has zero interest in feeding herself. Even something highly preferred, if I put it in her hand, she will drop it and whine until I pick it up and offer it to her. I have been trying to encourage her to play with her food more, in hopes that she might start feeding herself. It’s only happened a handful of times though. I’m not really sure how else to encourage her to be more independent about eating… But for now, this is my strategy. Any ideas? :)
