From my new book – Mash up some eye candy for your baby or toddler

One thing that I have tried to ensure when writing The Wholesome Baby Food Guide is that the recipes be not only simple and fast, but fun to create as well.  This recipe from the book shows you how easy it is to make creative baby food combinations:

Using roasted beets and mashed potatoes, you can take 2 ordinary foods and combine them to create some extra-ordinary results.

Babies and toddlers (and us big kids too!) love to explore foods with their hands and their mouths.  Presentation of foods can also be important. as an eye catching plate or bowl full of interesting looking foods helps to create a fun and positive association with those foods.
