Hello, everyone..!! I am back with one more squash recipe. Did you know there are so many varieties of squashes and each one has its own benefits? This gives us many options to work around squashes. In today’s recipe, I have used acorn, butternut squash, and yellow squash and added sweet potato to it. Then I added some Italian seasoning as aromatics. This recipe can be steamed, baked or broiled too.
Since squash can be introduced as early as 6 months, this recipe can be given to babies from 6 months and above. For 1 year and older this can be given as is, or can be used as a dipping sauce, or can be mixed with other foods. Squashes have a high nutrient value so are very helpful in the overall development of babies. They are high in vitamins and minerals and are a good source of fiber. They are packed with a bunch of antioxidants as well. Squashes are a good alternative for soups too.
