It’s that time again – here we are with one more edition of Tasty Meals for Tiny Tots! In case you missed the earlier ones, we’ve previously had Red Lentil & White Bean Stew, ABC Oatmeal, and Purple Pudding – all simple, nutritious recipes you can check out and try at home!
Today we’re here with another one from Lauren & Jules from Baby Food Bible (Instagram: @baby.food.bible). This recipe is a delicious green purée, grabbing all the amazing goodness to be found in kiwifruit, spinach and avocado, and combining them with oats, yoghurt, hemp seeds and breast milk for a truly healthy baby food option. Even better, this is another no-cook recipe! You can continue on with your day while the oats soak, then once they’re done, just blend everything together until you’ve got your smooth purée! Easy, tasty, and packed full of a huge range of vitamins, minerals, fibre, and other essential nutrients, the Green Kiwifruit Purée really is a winner.
