Warm, hearty soup loaded with vegetables that your child will slurp up within minutes (if the adults in your family don't do it first!). Seriously guys, my kids have gotten into a rut, where they only eat pasta or rice. I finally tried out this soup and poured it into mugs for them to drink. I'm not sure if it was the yummy flavors of the soup, or that they got to drink it out of a mug, or some combination, but they drank it right up. THIS IS A KEEPER!!!
My toddler lived off some variation of this for about a year of his life. This is great for all kids and a nice way to get some veggies in. I found it worked great for him because he had issues with textures. We often made a vegetable soup and boiled pasta at the beginning of the week and would have it on hand to make this meal in a bind all week. Also could serve the soup alone, and it was also a good adult meal.
A healthy blend of quinoa, lentils, and veggies! A quick alternative to regular rice khichdi. Easily pureed if need be. Can be spiced up for adults to make a relatively healthy comfort food! This is the go to in our house when our little guy is sick or I need to cook up a quick meal for all of us!
Delicious fruit filled smoothie packed with protein and vitamin C. My toddler kids love to have this as a snack after their midday nap. Could also be fed to babies over 9 months as long as the fruit is steamed/baked before placing into a blender, and you replace the milk with breastmilk or formula.
Babies of Indian descent, who are ready for stage 3 foods, are often given khichdi because its loaded with protein form the lentils, its soft, easy to chew, and simple to make. Khichdi is an Indian staple and you can cook it with as little as 3 ingredients or as much as 20 ingredients. In my experience, the more ingredients means the longer time spent cooking the dish. And with twins, I have had to learn to be efficient and cut corners when possible. This recipe is a favorite of my cuties and is limited to a just a few ingredients.
