I'm just curious as to how everyone prepares veggies. Connor is far more a veggie man than a fruit guy, so I'd like to get a few more things into our rotation. He, of course, loves butternut squash (and acorn squash- all winter squashes, really), peas and carrots. I'm not sure how to prepare other veggies in a safe, self-feeding friendly way for him (he doesn't do spoons so purees aren't an option). For example, how would I do broccoli or cauliflower? Green beans? Zucchini?
And while I'm at it... meat. Do I just cook chicken (or turkey or pork) in a pan with olive oil, no seasoning, or should I broil it? Or is it ok to get him used to seasonings (not salt and pepper maybe, but other herbs?), what's ok for him?
He's 10 months and his solids interest is growing rapidly, sometimes I can't keep up with how much he wants to eat! Luckily he still loves breastfeeding too!
