    Default Introducing other types of veg

    hi all

    so far i've introduced my 8 mo old boy to sweet potato, potato, avocado, pumpkin, carrot and he loves it all. i've also mixed sweet potato with carrot, with pumpkin.

    was wondering if i can start him on broccoli/cauliflower mixed with sweet potato? are there any other suggestions for combos?

    Jackson eats broccoli and loves it. He also eats yellow squash, zucchini, potato, peas, apples, pears, bananas. He tried hamburger a few weeks ago and liked that too. He's going to try green beans next. (we had a bad reaction to peaches and sweet potato)

    When we lived in the UK, mine loved swede (rutabaga) mixed with carrot. But the all-time favourite for my children has been parsnips and green beans, probably because it's fairly sweet! You can also try mixing veggies with fruit - sounds awful, but actually tastes quite nice!

    Cauliflower and broccoli are fine, but broccoli stems can cause gas, so beware!

    My 7 mth old loves acorn squash. It's very easy to make. Cut up the squash, microwave for 10 minutes, let sit for 5, then puree (in a food processor). Squash is great with apple sauce. I buy the organic apple sauce and it's quite tart, so the squash balances it out. I freeze the apple sauce in little cubes to pull out when needed. Peas are also good and I've mixed them with zuchini (one is think and one is thin). I buy frozen peas, but the zuchini is coming out of my garden now.

    great!

    another question: does a fruit like apple or pear constitute a meal or a snack?
