Re: Adding spices/seasonings to homemade baby food?

Early on, I added just one spice at a time so that if he had a sensitivity it would be easier to trace. After a while I relaxed and just gave him whatever we were having, minus anything that might be a choking hazard. The first time he had a bite of pumpkin pie during the holidays, it gave him hives, and I have a feeling it was one of the spices, just not sure which one.

We often put cinnamon and ginger in oatmeal and sweet potato. He loves roasted garlic mashed into avocado. He grabbed a bite of Papa's eggs w/ Tabasco sauce one morning and it didn't bother him one bit--I think we've got a spicy one on our hands!

Yeah I love adding a little bit of spice to my baby's food. I don't want him eating bland stuff

I haven't started with spices yet, since so far we've just introduced avocado (win!) and green beans (fail!) -- these are great ideas! MAybe some garlic will make her like the green beans more

Re: Adding spices/seasonings to homemade baby food?

Our LO has been going nuts when we eat so I decided to put some of the food in the bullet and chop it up fairly easy for her to swallow. WOW what a difference. She just wasn't happy with the full on pureed food. Definitely loves the different foods and spices. And she acts at the table as if she is a big girl already. I have made all her food from the start and she never had any spices but when she did try a couple different kinds her eyes and attitude were so cute to watch!

Re: Adding spices/seasonings to homemade baby food?

I use a lot of spices for my babies...lamb/beef/bison with sauteed garlic and onions and thyme is a fave!
I want to point out though, that cinnamon is really strong and actually left red marks(splotches) on my daughter around her mouth...I think it was from being smeared onto the face while eating that caused it, not actually ingesting it. It's as if it burned her a little bit...just a heads up on that one

My lo loves spices, though sometimes it makes his poo smell something awful

Re: Adding spices/seasonings to homemade baby food?

These are all great ideas. I'm a grandma making food for my 7month grandson. There are foods he loves there are foods he hates. I like the spice idea, we never use salt or sugar. All should be good.

Re: Adding spices/seasonings to homemade baby food?

This is interesting. With my first two I had time to make their own veggies/food on the side. But with 3 under 5 yrs oldit is very difficult and I was wondering if I could just feed LO from whatever we were eating l, mashed up of course. Thanks for this post.

This. Of course, I think it helped that he was breast-fed and got some of the flavors in the breast milk.My son now has a fantastic range of food interests.
