Our Littlest Ones are Digging our Homemade Baby Food.
Here at Little Dreamers Big Believers, we spend a lot of time thinking about good nutrition and the effect it has on our students. For the past several years, we've been putting a tremendous amount of effort into making healthy lunches and baked goods for our older kids, and we finally realized we should let our "Sweet Peas" (Infants ages 6 weeks to 12 months) in on all the goodness.
We start by finding wholesome, in-season fruits and vegetables and pureeing them into gorgeously colored, insanely nutritious baby foods that our little ones (and their parents) are absolutely loving. What goes into these amazing meals? All of the first foods we know babies love, and some surprising ingredients that give them a first taste of something different and help expand their palates. To date, we've whipped up golden beets, carrots, apples, pears and bananas, as well as more adventurous turnips, rutabagas, celery root, and persimmons.
Although, to date, we've only been serving this scrumptious stuff at our Centers, lots of parents have told us this is exactly the kind of food they'd want to serve at home...if they only had the time. So we're starting to sell six-packs to parents on Fridays. Each pack contains 3 fruits and 3 vegetables in individual 4-oz containers, and will be sold on a first-come-first-served basis for $8.
If you're interested, please let us know when you drop off your baby on Friday morning, and we'll put you on the list.
