Baby Led Weaning: Veggie Waffle with a Twist

18 Aug

Tonight at dinner, right before we broke out into song and dance (this happens), I decided to feed Betsy a waffle and vegetables for dinner. 9 times out of 10 she eats what we are having, but tonight it was Rueben sandwiches and I decided to forgo the beer soaked kraut for the baby.

Spread a little butter on a whole wheat waffle and set it down on her plate nestled safely between frozen peas and fresh corn……

And then crescendo! I shoved a pea in waffle box…and then a kernel.
Then Jazz hands! The Veggie Waffle was born.
Easy, Cheap, yummy, pretty, fun, and helps with fine motor. I win.

Baby toddler dinner

try adding frozen peas and fresh corn to a whole wheat waffle. I also added a swipe of butter.

She picked the little suckers out one by one and popped them in her mouth, excited for herself. She ate every last bit.

    I love this! You could also do it with raisins or other dried fruit for a sweet snack (not as healthy, tho!)

Lemme know
