Baby (food) smoothie!

There is a lot to love about babies. The rolls and rolls of fat. The chunky cheeks. The wide, bright eyes that take in everything. The smiles. The giggles. The way they smell. Babies are charming.

But sometimes getting a baby to eat can be... a tab bit... well... frustrating.

My boy loves food! He loves to eat. He giggles when we he sees food. He loves it. But... sometimes when my little man is teething, has the sniffles or is just being an ill pill (which is pretty rare I have to say) feeding can be difficult.

My sister told me that her friend came up with a baby smoothie. Let me tell you, it has been a lifesaver. Those days when little bit doesn't want to eat or when we are in the car during what should be a meal time, I hand him a smoothie and he is happy as a clam.

I shared this with some friends on Facebook and a friend of mine said it was the only way she could calm her son down for a nap.

So here it is. So simple.


What you'll need:

2- 4 ounces breast milk or formula

2 tbsp oats or rice

2- 4 ounces baby food or unsweetened applesauce

Place all your ingredeints in a sippy cup or bottle and shake, shake, shake, shake, shake it. (Unless you're using breast milk, then stir it.)


Is it time to eat????

Gimme that smoothie, Mama!
