Cauliflower And Brocolli Baby Porridge

Ohhhh trees with snow! Cauliflower will provide your baby with  vitamin A, vitamin C and antioxidants which help protect from some serious diseases and supports a healthy heart. Cauli is also rich in calcium, but mostly in the green leaves, so you should include them when making your homemade broth or in stir fry, bologanise sauces etc. Cauliflower can be mashed with leek and used instead of mashed potato, it can be put in the food processor and cut like rice, or the flowers can be baked in the oven and used with dips or as a finger food for older babies. When you are introducing solids to babies the foods don't need to just be boiled, keep it interesting and use different ways to prepare them. Bake, steam, boil, fry (with coconut oil or water), puree, mash.. there are so many options and opportunities to shape the way your kids view food!

Cauliflower is so awesome that I’ve done quite a few recipes containing it. Some are complicated, for older kids, and some are simple for pureed baby food. You can get it here All of my recipes can be used with or without Little Mashies squeeze containers, you don’t have to buy my product to benefit from the recipe ebook, it’s just something I’ve put together after about 10,000 emails asking me to ☺ enjoy!
