I’m so glad Carson is at an age now were we can give him a much greater variety of things to eat. Even though Carson will mostly eat anything I give him, his diet still seems to mostly consist of anything cheesy/carby. Which doesn’t surprise me, cause that’s all I craved when I was pregnant with him. Cheese bagels with butter were my jam!
Recently, I’ve been trying to add more greens and veggies into his diet. Some of Carson’s favorite foods are bananas, oatmeal, cheese cubes, cheerios, bread, greek yogurt, kiwi, avocado, and against my better judgment a bite of dad’s donut every now and then! Notice how no veggies were listed? Don’t get me wrong, he does eat veggies just not on a daily basis. Even then, he doesn’t necessarily love them like the foods listed above. So since it’s kind of hard to give a 1 year old salad, I decided to give him a spinach smoothie with banana and frozen strawberries. And much to my surprise, he loved it! Also, it kept him occupied for about 20 min. in his highchair while I did the dishes, so I’m all for that!
- Handful of Spinach
- 1/4 of a banana
- 3 or 4 frozen strawberries
- 4 Tablespoons of water
I used the baby bullet, which is perfect, because its tiny and super easy to clean. Its so nice to not have to lug out our huge ninja blender for such a small smoothie.
You know its got to be good when the hands are up and the eyes are closed..
