Quick Kids Spaghetti Bolognaise
Spaghetti and pasta generally are introduced to your baby food at about 8 months old. You can start with it slightly pureed, then as the baby gets older roughly mash it, and later serve the same as adults. If there is an intolerance to gluten or wheat there are plenty of gluten free options on the market now. We often use rice noodles or kelp noodles for our pasta! Pasta sauce is a great way to hide vegetables if you need to. I often puree a bunch of vegetables I know my daughter doesn't really eat much of and then hide it in the sauce. Another way is to grate the ingredients so they are super fine. You can pretty much mix whatever vegatables you have in the fridge with minced beef and tomato puree and it will taste delicious. Don't be afraid to experiment.
