Eat Your [Purple] Veggies!

In Baby Love, Food on April 7, 2009 at 8:05 am


On Sunday mornings we head to the Larchmont Farmers Market with Tiny G and pick up eggs and produce for the week. Some of the veggies I steam and purée in the Beaba Babycook for Tiny G. I like to add a little pinch of spice just to introduce him to new flavors, like ground coriander with yellow beets, or cinnamon with mangoes, or this week, ground cumin with purple cauliflower.

Interestingly, given Tiny G’s paternal Irish heritage, potatoes are the only food he outright rejects, which is bizarre, but I’m not complaining. Besides, I have to believe that brightly colored veggies are healthier than their albino counterparts, and I’ve read that purple cauliflower is particularly heart smart. Plus, it has to be the prettiest baby food ever! It reminds me of African violets.


Tiny G is a big fan, too. Now if only we could get him to eat with his mouth closed…
