The first week is the most exciting, and remember this is supposed to be fun and a time for exploring.
Here are few things to note about this meal plan:
--> 1 oz is apron. 1 tbsp
--> 1 medium apple makes 2 oz of puree
--> 1 medium pear makes 2 oz of puree
--> your baby may eat less than 2 oz of puree, but just in case, I like to make sure there's enough just in case she goes wild.
--> For finger foods, cut or shape the veggies as close to 3 inch pieces and if possible in a "cylindrical" shape.
--> Your baby is unlikely to eat more than 2 slices of fruit or veggie, but make enough extra as some are for sure going to hit the floor ;)
Your grocery list for the first week is:
* 6 apples
* 1 butternut squash
* 1 pear
Hey! I’m Ana!
I’m a Baby and Kids Holistic Nutritionist + a Picky Eating Coach, but my most important role, is that of a mommy to my two toddlers (both boys).
I work with parents who have babies & kids with feeding challenges using the SOS Approach to Feeding.
I was also a child picky eater … and not only do I get YOU as a mom, but I also know what your little munchkin is feeling and thinking.
Combined with my studies as a holistic nutritionist, my training in feeding therapy, and my real life experience, I have a very unique approach to feeding your little ones.
You see, growing up I was a very picky eater. If it didn’t look right, smell right, feel right it just was not going into my mouth. I later learned I was a supertaster, which basically means I have more tastebuds and taste everything (especially bitter) more intensely.
Mehhhh, what a crappy superpower :/. It took me a long time to accept it and work with it. When I was ready to start a family, I finally had the motivation I need to make changes.
If you are looking for a gentle, logical, and nourishing approach to helping your child eat new foods, I have created the I ❤️ Mealtime Club. Enrollment is not always open. You can get notified here and sign up for the 5 Day Picky Eating Email course at the same time.
And if you're wanting to be part of a community where we chat about different ways we nourished our little munchkins, hop inside the Baby and Kids Facebook Community!
Let's #rockmealtime again!
PS. I thought you might want some resources on feeding kiddos.
