Hello everyone. It’s December, and I can’t believe this year is ending already. For me, it was a milestone year. The baby behind Easy Baby Meals started Kindergarten.

It seems as if the years just flew. There was a time when I first held her, and then came a day when I left her at the school gate. I cherish those memories every day and look forward to her becoming an independent little girl.

Coming back to today’s post, I am sharing with you all the December Produce List and recipe ideas to include those fruits and vegetables in our everyday diet.

I have also included a chart of When To Introduce various fruits and vegetables to your little ones. I have taken out the guesswork for you.

So let’s start by going through what’s in the season for December.

When To Give December Produce- Easy Baby Meals

The above-given chart is based on what I gave my daughter after consulting her Pediatrician. Every individual child is different, so what worked for me may not work for you.

It’s always better to talk to your pediatrician before introducing new foods, especially if your child suffers from allergies.

Keeping this in mind, let’s go through the details of When To Give:

6 months:

Apples, Swee Potatoes, Potatoes, and Winter Squash:

The given fruits and vegetables are perfect starter food for babies at six months. Steaming them and turning them into puree can make a wholesome meal. You can add some baby cereal for added nutrition.

8 months:

Beets, Broccoli, Celery, Leeks, Spinach, Turnips, Cranberries, Persimmons, and Parsley.

I introduced my daughter to the vegetables mentioned above between eight and nine months of age. I cooked these vegetables and turned them into a puree. For more flavors, I added little ground cumin or cinnamon. Garlic powder was my staple as well for savory purees.

Parsley can be introduced at this stage in your baby food. Adding little-chopped parsley while making baby food gives a delicious flavor and aroma to the recipe.

10 Months:

Oranges, Mandarines, Lemons. Cilantro and Thyme.

My daughter snacked on oranges and mandarines at this stage. She loved them and still relishes these fruits.

I introduced her to lemon juice by sprinkling some lemon juice on her savory food. She enjoyed it.

A note of caution here: Oranges, mandarines, and lemons can cause diaper rash if given in high quantities for some infants. My daughter was not allergic or didn’t have any sensitivity issues.

So always monitor how much citrus food your baby is eating.

Cilantro and Thyme are again savory herbs that give an aroma to your baby food. Go on and use them in your baby food.

1 year:

Grapefruit, Arugula, Cabbage, Cauliflower. Kale, Mushrooms, Grapes, Pomegranate, and Tomatoes.

For the rest of the vegetables and fruits, I waited until her 1 year birthday before introducing them to her daily diet.

Every individual child is different, so what worked for me may not work for you.

It’s always better to talk to your pediatrician before introducing new foods, especially if your child suffers from allergies.
