Toddler Food

My baby used to love pureed veggies.  It was a parent's dream come true. Fast forward a couple of months and now at 12 months my child turns her nose to being fed anything by me, except yogurt.  Instead she is Miss Independent and wants to feed herself.  The problem? She is not into vegetables.  She will put the peas and carrots in her mouth and then spit them out when she figures out what it is.  It's like they know!

She now only likes turkey, cheese, avocado, strawberries and whole wheat carbs.  What now?

I am on my way to getting the Deceptively Delicious cookbook on Amazon Deceptively Delicious: Simple Secrets to Get Your Kids Eating Good Food. I didn't think I would need it so soon, but apparently I do.  She also has a new one out called Double Delicious.  I also found her website and it has a ton of recipes on it too, for free!  Stay tuned to see how Luna likes her mom's new 'trick' food!

After Googling a ton of searches for baby and toddler food ideas, I came across a blog that has been featured on the Today Show called Weelicious at  It's a cute blog with recipes and ideas for baby food, toddlers and families.  I can't wait to try the homemade Carrot, Broccoli and Cheese Orzo pasta dish.  My daughter LOVES pasta and I hope she likes the veggies in this one.

Want to see how much she loves pasta? This picture of her cracks me up because you can barely recognize her!  She looks like a clown. So cute.

Anybody have ideas for great toddler/baby recipes or websites that you have found?
