Cooked brown rice
Green beans


Use the quantities of each vegetable that best suits your baby’s preferences. This can be a good way of getting your tot to eat a vegetable that your child has previously refused by masking it within the mixture. Trim and chop the vegetables, then steam them. Start with the carrots and then the squash, as these veggies take the longest to cook. Continue steaming in order of thickness. Once cooked, mix the vegetables with the rice in a food processor. Then puree to the desired consistency, adding a little breast milk or formula if necessary. For older babies, add 1-2 tablespoons of diced, boiled chicken breast without the skin to the food processor. Serve with the brown rice.
