7 Yummy Baby Food Recipes for Baby's First Thanksgiving!
Our timing with introducing Judah to solids couldn’t have worked out more perfectly… it’s all been leading up to THE foodie holiday of the year: Thanksgiving! Since he first started solids, we’ve been slowly introducing him to new flavors and foods with Thanksgiving in mind: green beans, carrots, potatoes and turkey. Now, when we sit down at the table, Judah will be able to share a little bit of our Thanksgiving feast with us by having a little of each Thanksgiving favorite all on one plate.
Read more for seven yummy, super easy baby food recipes to try with your little one for their first Thanksgiving!
A Delicious Feast For Your Little Foodie
Thanksgiving is a wonderful time for family food traditions and there’s no reason to keep baby at the kids’ table. Treat your little one to the tastes of the holiday with these 7 simple Thanksgiving baby food recipes!
Baby Tested, Baby Approved Yummyness!
Dubious that your little one might not dig all the flavors and textures? Don’t worry… we’ve been testing, tweaking and tasting our yummy recipes all month long in preparation for the big Turkey Day!
Judah approves :)
Roasted Turkey and Stock Puree
Why feed baby turkey from a jar when you can make your very own turkey puree from your Thanksgiving bird? Take a few pieces of white and dark meat and puree in a blender. You can even thin it out with a little stock made on the spot with some hot water and turkey juices from the pan for a truly savory entree for baby.
Mashed Potatoes with Greek Yogurt
Mashed potatoes… a Thanksgiving staple! For a super yummy treat, bake a potato in the microwave (cuts down on cooking time) then scoop out the inside and mash it up with a tablespoon or two of Greek yogurt. The creamy, tangy taste of the yogurt goes perfectly with the texture of the potato.
Gingered Carrot Puree
Grate some fresh ginger or add a dash of ginger powder as you steam a serving of carrots. Drain and toss the ginger, throw in the blender and puree until smooth for a savory side dish for baby.
Green Bean "Casserole"
Steam a serving of fresh green beans and throw them in a blender with a dash of onion powder and a splash of chicken or turkey stock to mimic all the flavors of a traditional green bean casserole with fried onions on top. Puree to your baby’s texture preference.
Butternut Squash with Pumpkin Pie Spice
Kick up a plain butternut squash puree with just a dash of pumpkin pie spice. Your little one might be a little too small for her own slice of pie, but she can get the next best thing with a simple butternut squash mash with all the flavor of pumpkin pie!
Brown Rice "Stuffing"
Stuffing from the turkey might be a bit too much for baby, but you can make your own faux “stuffing” by mixing an eighth of a cup of brown rice cereal, an eighth of a cup of oatmeal and an ounce of turkey juices mixed in water. Keep the mixture a little thicker to really give it that “stuffing” texture.
A perfectly sweet ending to a tasty Thanksgiving feast for baby! You can even make your own applesauce if you have time. A single serve cup of unsweetened organic applesauce warmed in the microwave for 15 seconds with just a dash of cinnamon on top makes for a wonderful first Thanksgiving dessert.
Treat Your Baby to a Thanksgiving Feast
If you’re little one has already gotten a taste of most of these foods, why not treat him or her to their very own feast? Make a small serving of each and place a little bit around the plate for them to explore new textures and try out flavors in new combinations!
