Yummy Black Bean Soup

Last week, our 17-month old was getting a bit fussy to eat. After a quick visit to the pediatrician we found out his molars were coming in, which is probably the reason why he didn’t want to chew.

Our son absolutely loved it and best of all, ate the WHOLE thing. Black beans are filled with so many health benefits, from lowing cholesterol and have 10 times as much antioxidants than oranges! It’s the perfect dish the entire family will enjoy and it’s packed with flavor.

The Emergence of a Picky Eater

At 21 months old, it’s fair to say we have a picky eater on our hands. Our tiny diner has begun to boycott foods that where once among her favorites as well as some of the newer foods we try to introduce. With the exception of her tried and true favorites, the things she will willfully eat seem to change from one day to the next. One day she’s devouring spinach and the next day she’s using it as garland for her highchair. One day she’s eating her snack and the next minute she’s looking around for the dog so that she can eat it instead.

5 Reasons Why Avocados Are Pretty Much the Best Baby Food Ever

There are very few things that Judah won’t eat. We’ve even moved on from feeding him traditional “baby food” – the kind that comes in jars and pouches – and now he’s pretty much eats what we eat at the table, with some slight modifications.
