Recipes without meat and eggs.
Carrot, Corn, and Butternut Squash Soup
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!!!
Cous Cous with 4 veggie Purée
A healthy and delicious cous cous and vegetable meal packed with with carbohydrates, minerals, vitamins including selenium, Thiamin, Niacin, Folic acid, and manganese for active babies and toddlers!
Nutritious Quinoa and Moong Dal (Lentil) Dosa with cheese filling. My LO, who is a very picky eater, loved this meal. Dosa is a fermented crepe typically made from rice batter and black lentils and is a staple dish in South Indian states.
Homemade Fig Perserve
Best homemade fig preserve ever! Serve with morning toast or for kids lunches! Better than store bought!
Stuffed Paratha with Boiled Potatoes and Carrots
Stuffed Paratha or Parantha (popular Indian flatbread) with boiled potatoes and carrots...takes a little practice but your kids (and hubby) will love it!
Healthy Ragi and Date Halwa
A healthy brain food for toddlers 12 months plus. This delicious halwa (a sweet dish served across India and many other countries) is made of Ragi (also known as Finger Millet in the USA), which is packed with proteins, minerals & amino acids.

Ladies--This tea has hands down improved my breast milk supply tenfold!!! I'm not kidding. If I stop drinking this, I see low production. Hopefully this will help you too!

Orzo with veggies/cheese
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.
