Fall is in the air! As the leaves begin to change colors and the weather grows cooler, this time of year inspires new palettes of color all around…and new food palettes, too! As you care for your family this season, one thing you may notice at your local grocery store or Farmer’s Market are an array of seasonal food items. Harvests full of pumpkins, squash and apples, for example, may be more readily available to shoppers. We thought this would be the perfect time of year to suggest some Fall themed baby food recipes to try. By using some of the most common seasonal food items, you can whip up some deliciously seasonal meals for your littlest family member! Check out these recipe ideas below:
