Feeding babies. For something that sounds like it should be so simple, I had no idea just how complicated it could be. One day baby loves everything you put in front of her. The next day, no vegetable will pass her lips. What gives baby?
Food is important to me. As I have gotten older and more self educated on the subject, I have realized just how important everything that goes into our bodies is. Though I have always been a pretty healthy eater, it wasn’t until I got pregnant that I really became slightly obsessed with eating as healthfully as possible (while still saving room for some indulgences).
Anyway, it is my goal to give Lucy the most nutritious, unprocessed diet I possibly can. She loves these pancakes. I tried feeding her squash in another form, and she wouldn’t have it, but I really think she would eat just about any veggie in this form.
- 2 zucchinis/squash (or any other vegetable) shredded (about 1.5-2 cups)
- 2 eggs
- 1/3 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon dried herbs (I used thyme, but you can really use anything)
- Butter or oil for pan frying
- In a large bowl whisk eggs. Add grated vegetable, stirring to incorporate. Stir in flour, baking powder, and herbs.
- In a large preheated pan over medium heat add oil or butter. When butter is melted and just starting to sizzle add a few dollops of the mix.
- Cook for a few minutes, or until a nice crust forms on the bottom. Flip, and press down with a spatula to flatten. Cook for a few more minutes, until cooked through.
