Eating with a Baby

In a breakfast rut?  Same ol' cereal getting boring?  No time for oatmeal?

Eat with a baby!

(Okay, so this won't actually solve the time problems...)

But!  It will get your out of your normal breakfast foods.  Suddenly, things like sweet potatoes seem good for breakfast, because that's what the baby is eating*.

And it is good.  It's delicious and nutritious and easy and cheap- the quad equivalent of trifecta of food!

Your baby loves avocado so much her face turns green?  Avocado-toast for breakfast!  Yes!  Add a hard-boiled egg for protein- she loves the yolk, too.

Her love of peaches and blueberries reminds you to eat your fruits, too.  The way she smashes them on her mouth indicates their deliciousness.

Plus, it's a chance to teach her baby sign language and prepare her for a future of being brilliant, just like you.

Clean up and enjoy the day!

*Real sweet potatoes: just cleaned, poked, and put on a baking sheet for about 45 minutes at 425.  This can be done ahead of time and warmed in the microwave.  Cut and serve!

(And I'm no feeding-a-baby expert, but I do a combo of this and this- basically soft table food and nursing after 6 months, only mama's milk before.)
