From snack ideas to hydrating drinks, we have rounded up a few yummy baby food recipes to serve up this season. The recipes below are made up of in season produce to offer the maximum amount of health benefits and ultimate tastiness!
First up is a summertime staple…watermelon! There are so many ways to serve this one up and it is a great pick for snacks or meal time, plus it takes minimal prep work. You can puree it all on its own for younger babies. You can also slice it into bite size pieces for toddlers or use cookie cutters to cut out neat shapes for their little hands to hold and nibble on! Watermelons are full of healthy nutrients and they are a great way to ensure your little one stays hydrated in warm weather.
This recipe can be served in addition to lunch time or dinner time meals. It is a great way to introduce two healthy foods that little ones will love! Simply peel and cut the cucumber into bite-size pieces. Serve alongside plain, whole milk yogurt and encourage little hands to dig right in! Both foods are full of nutrients and the extra water that cucumbers contain is great for hydration.
This next recipe puts a fun twist on breakfast time or snack time! It requires just three ingredients and can be blended and served in under five minutes. It is a convenient recipe to serve for breakfast, or to whip up mid-afternoon. The ingredients may surprise you as avocado and banana may be an unlikely pair. Most of the flavor here will come from the banana however and the avocado offers an extra smooth texture and it packs a healthy punch!
This next recipe uses ripe summer fruits to make a delicious tropical treat for toddlers!
This idea offers a tasty drink idea! Simply combine coconut water with lots of ice and serve in a bottle or sippy cup. It is cool, refreshing and healthy, too!
