As a new mommy, I am quickly learning the beauty of a few minutes to myself that don’t involve chasing after a crawling baby. As a healthy food blogger, I also take pride in making sure my little one is eating the rainbow in nutrients every day.
My solution? The baby smoothie! In addition to being a complete meal full of vitamins, protein and fiber, it also allows my 9 month old to feed himself. And these days, he prefers it! The days of feeding him with a spoon without him grabbing it to throw across the room are slowly winding down. He prefers to be hands on and in leui of him feeding himself a bowl of oatmeal, this smoothie does the trick.
