Right, so I realize that this one is sort of a cheat, because who doesn’t like french toast? Especially when it’s cut into cute little animal shapes and drizzled with maple syrup? To be fair, the recipe that I used from Annabel Karmel’s New Complete Baby & Toddler Meal...

So I did a review of all of the current Stage 2 meals available in Finland a few months ago. Not completely satisfied with the range, I took the opportunity when traveling to pick up a few more flavors to try out on our little bottomless pit. This was an exercise in giving him variety, though...

This year’s harvest season started a little late, thanks to the mild spring extending into a cooler-than-normal summer. Along with the regular rainfall, this led to abundant flowers that resulted in what is looking like a bumper crop for many of our fruits. Above, my first strawberry ...

We’re jumping forward a bit here from the Stage 1 stuff that I’ve previously reviewed because I wanted to follow along our dinner progression path for a bit. I mentioned that we started out with veggie purees, to which I began adding a bit of meat or couscous as the weeks went by. At ...

I’m pretty sure this was my very first baby smoothie, made back in February. I had actually intended to make it for myself and share it with the baby, but he ended up liking them so much that I had to keep it up after we started. Now he looks indignant if he doesn’t get offered a...

As all of the baby food posts might attest, Blob has been taking to solids with the greatest enthusiasm. What I haven’t said much about yet is how he’s doing with the whole feeding-himself skill set. That’s because… well, this.

After a month of only giving solids for breakfast, I decided it was time to expand into another meal. I didn’t particularly feel like giving cereal for dinner, so we went with these 4 month+ fruit and veggie purees. I picked up a lot of hints from these pouches for how to blend my own...

Another recipe from Karen LeBillon’s “French Kids Eat Everything” book, which I had to try because I absolutely love leeks. Wasn’t as sold on adding fruit to it, but figured the baby would certainly enjoy it. He’s got a big thing for fruit and veggie combos, probably because of the s...

A couple weeks after we started with the Valio gruels, I went browsing the shelves for other brands and flavors that looked interesting. Blob was so enthusiastic about his new non-milk breakfasts that I wanted to get in as much variety as possible while the getting was good. They also came in...

Taking a break from reviewing storebought foods today to share a fast and tasty pureed spinach soup I found last week! This was excerpted from Karen LeBillon’s “French Kids Eat Everything” book, which I have only scanned but do plan on reading thoroughly one of these days. You...

Here’s something different from the long list of porridges and gruels I’ve been presenting – yogurt and fruit snacks! These were actually what gave me the idea of adding yogurt into my own baby smoothies — Blob developed a huge fondness for these particular blends but...

So after a month of gradually thickening the gruels (both pre-mixed and powdered) with additional baby cereal, we were pretty much at porridge consistency. This coincided with the 5-month+ age recommendation for these porridges above, so I started serving them up as well. Although I started...
