Feeding a growing baby is so much fun for a foodie!! Trust me, I am loving this phase! Ryan is such an adventurous eater and will basically try anything I give her…for now anyway!
One thing that she really loves is my spirilizer…and I do too! It is one of those kitchen tools that is a luxury not a necessity (this I know) but when you cook as much as I do, you tend to keep a pretty stocked kitchen.
I started using my spirilizer as a way to make veggies fun and it has really worked!! She will chow down on just about any vegetable that can be turned in to a noodle…and these butternut squash noodles are one of her favorites.
You simply crank these babies through the spirilizer and then steam them. I love to add the tiniest amount of butter and then a spice, like nutmeg or cinnamon.
I’m finding that she is really starting to like more flavor, which is great news for me!
If you don’t have a spirilizer, don’t worry! This same flavor works great in a mash or on steamed cubes of squash! No need to go out and purchase something new…unless you got that shopping itch…then DO YOU!
Fun fact about noodles for babies: they are GREAT for their fine motor skills! Plus they keep those busy fingers occupied!
