Some babies eat vegetables without much fuss. However, many little ones seem hard-wired, from birth, to resist the greens. Here’s a tasty recipe to help you sneak some more nutrients into your babe’s diet. I threw this together a few nights ago and was surprised at how eager my 9 month old was to gobble it up.
1 apple – unpeeled
1/2 cup frozen spinach
1/2 cup coconut milk, breast milk or water
Core the apple and put it into the food processor along with the spinach and fluid. Process until the mixture is free of any lumps and is the consistency of applesauce. Store in a glass jar with a tight-fitting lid in the refrigerator for up to four days.
Spinach is a great source of vitamin K, calcium, vitamin A, vitamin C, folate, magnesium, and iron. Apples are great for digestion and contain vitamin C. Both are excellent foods to introduce to a baby, beginning at six months of age.
Make sure to have your camera ready to capture the perfect picture of your little one covered in green!
