From the moment your baby is ready to start solids, the quest for finding nutritious foods for them begins! As soon as your child shows signs that they are ready, we have some organic baby food ideas that are easy to whip up. We also included a couple of recommendations for serving up toddlers and young children. These recipes are sure to please even the littlest of taste buds!

Pumpkin Puree for Baby & Pumpkin Seeds for the Parents

When you think of baby food recipes, pumpkins may not be the very first ingredient that pops into your head! However, pumpkins are full of essential vitamins and are super simple to prepare. Don't let the initial prep steps deter you! Start by selecting a small sugar pumpkin, remove the stem and cut the pumpkin in half. Scoop out the seeds and set those aside! Cover each pumpkin half with foil and pop it into the oven at 325 degrees for about one hour. Next, scrape the insides and pop them into the blender. You can add in a sprinkle of nutmeg for taste, and even incorporate some apple or pear to sweeten the flavor. It will leave you with a tasty recipe that is full of healthy benefits for your baby. Lastly, you can roast those pumpkin seeds you set aside earlier and keep those as a healthy snack for yourself! It is an all around perfect pick for both baby and parents!

Blue Superfood Blend

This next recipe incorporates some of our very favorite superfoods. We are combining half of a banana, half of an avocado and a small handful of blueberries for a delicious treat. Bananas make a great texture base for any baby food recipe. When combined with avocado, it packs some healthy fat, too! The blueberries mixed in add great flavor, as well as natural coloring. Mix in some water to thin out the texture if needed. We think this recipe is a perfect blend of smooth and sweet!

Tropical Treat

This recipe combines equal parts papaya and pears for a fruity and tropical twist on baby food! Simply add both fruits to a blender and mix in water until you reach the desired consistency. You could even add in a dash of baby yogurt if you want to add some creaminess to it! 


Sweet Beet Smoothie Organic Baby Food

Sweet Beet Smoothie

This next idea is more geared towards toddlers! We are mixing together 1/4 cup roasted beets, 1/2 an avocado, 2-3 strawberries, a spoonful of vanilla yogurt & 1 cup of milk.To roast the beets, simply wash them and then place them on a foil lined pan. Pop them in the oven for about 45 minutes at 375 degrees, or until soft! Allow them to cool for a few minutes and then peel! Blend all of the ingredients together until smooth and pop into the freezer for 15 minutes to chill! Serve it up with a brightly colored straw. Your toddler is sure to love this sweet smoothie, all while soaking up the healthy benefits.
