Re: Adding spices/seasonings to homemade baby food?

I was hesitant to add spices at first. But then after reading recipes from many mamas, I found out that they do use spices to the baby food and babies love them. I used to make sweet potato fries, using no spices and lo didn't like them at first. But when I read this recipe, I used a little bit, less than a pinch, he seemed to like, and that was when I started little bit here and there. He eats them happily now !

Re: Adding spices/seasonings to homemade baby food?

We made a lot of DD's food b/c we noticed some sort of sensitivity pretty much as soon as we started her on some table foods. We did a whole elimination thing, and pretty much narrowed it down to garlic &/or onions. That ruled out most of what DP & I ate, so we cooked small portions just for DD...and adding a touch of cinnamon, nutmeg, etc., pretty much guaranteed she'd eat almost anything, so we went with it. She still asks me to add extra cinnamon to her applesauce. There are worse habits to have...

I think adding spices is a great idea. The sooner they get used to a variety of flavors the better. And don't be scared to make it a little hot sometimes - my LO loves a little heat!

Re: Adding spices/seasonings to homemade baby food?

I started my LO off with seasoned & spiced foods from the start. One day when I made her batches of pureed food, I didn't have time to season it before I blended it up and she wasn't as enthused as when it has seasoning. I'm hoping it will help keep her from being a picky eater.

I do cinnamon in sweet potatoes and she loves it. Tried a little garlic in green beans and she wasn't sure at first but eats it now.

Cumin is good, as well as parsley, basil, and even stronger things like curry powder. I tried lots, and some were more popular than others, but I think it's good to try lots of favors. Herbs and spices are a fantastic way to do that.
