Seasonal Goodness: Delicious Winter Recipes for Babies
While the pickings may be slim for seasonal, local and fresh goodies come wintertime, there are still a surprising amount of options for you to try out while cooking for your families, and even babies.
I love the challenge of keeping things as seasonal and as local as possible, which in the Northern climate that I reside in can be quite tricky. But, it can still be done. I’ve featured the recipes of Catherine McCord before, as she’s a fellow contributor of mine over at Babble with her own column called Cutting Board Conversations. I was so happy when she came on board, as I’ve been a fan of her website Weelicious, for a long time.
She always has a plentiful index of seasonal recipes for babies, so I hope you enjoy what I’ve picked out for winter yumminess today!
Tasty Seasonal Recipes For Stage 2 Eaters and Up!
Click through to find easy tips and ideas using food that is in season for your babies…
Butternut Squash and Date Puree
Oh, yum. This could almost pass for dessert. In fact, I love using medjool dates (by making a paste in the food processor), instead of sugar when baking treats.
Cheesy Chicken Casserole
Who says babies can’t have casserole too? You may not want in on this action, but your baby will savour every last bite.
Your little one will go from turning his nose up at beets to gobbling them up with this recipe!
Cheesy Polenta Balls
If your little one isn’t ready for bites yet, you can do a pureed version of this and many of the other non-pureed recipes here!
More broccoli and cheese combinations for the win! Plus, this has yummy yogurt on top. Soup is something that the whole family can eat together!
Broccoli Potato Cheese Puree
A simple, everyday winter recipe that any baby will love, just because it’s CHEESE.
If you start your babies young with the green juice, you may just successfully stop them from turning their noses up at it when they’re toddlers. Try it — I did, and it works! (Plus it’s super tasty. Green is just a colour, after all.)
Carrot, Broccoli and Cheese Orzo
Another recipe the whole family can enjoy. Orzo is a fun first pasta for babies to try as it’s soft and the perfect shape for their little mouths!
Roast Carrot Coins
These look good enough for the whole family to eat, but they’re also ultimately the perfect bite-sized proportions for baby-led weaning if you’re into that instead of the purees!
Interesting right? Unusual perhaps, but judging from the comments on this recipe, a total win with little ones! Stage 3 eaters and up.
Introduce the flavours of Chile to your little one with this simple, yet fragrant and tasty little number! The main ingredients are sweet corn and squash, and I guarantee that they’ll love it! I can’t guarantee however, that they won’t throw it at you. Babies just like to throw food — even the stuff they like!
