Week Four

Let’s move on to some veggies. Vegetables are the best source of fiber and complex nutrients babies need. Spinach in particular has a lot of iron. Because spinach can be bitter for some babies, feel free to mix the sweet potatoes and spinach together.

Second item on the list is a year-round favorite, bananas.

Sweet Potato (makes 3 servings)

One large sweet potato

Peel and cut into ½ inch pieces. In a small saucepan, bring four cups of water to a boil. Add sweet potato and boil for about 8 minutes, until soft. Mash or puree in a blender or food processor, adding water from the pot as needed. Add 1 packet or 2 scoops Lil Mixins to each serving

Spinach (makes 2 servings)

12 oz spinach. Use baby spinach if fresh, chopped if frozen.

Add spinach to a saucepan with about a cup of water. Once it has wilted and turned bright green, remove from heat. Puree with water from the pot. Fold in 1 packet or 2 scoops Lil Mixins to each serving. Serve with mashed apple, mashed sweet potato, or even milk.
