October Produce List + Recipes- Easy Baby Meals-www.easybabymeals.com

 

Hello October. It’s almost Halloween time. And my favorite time of the year has begun. Staying in Arizona, October through April are the most amazing months of the year. These are the months when we get a good break from Arizona Heat.

This is also the time of the year when one can enjoy both Summer and winter produce simultaneously. So today, I have a list of October Produce, along with When To Introduce these delicious fruits and vegetables to your little ones. Recipes included.

If you are following my blog closely, you must have noticed; I am not sharing any recipes for some time now. This is because my goal for this year was to focus on Seasonal Produce. Along with informational posts like 10 Superfoods For Babies. etc

Knowing precisely what is in season and bringing it to the table for you all was the area I concentrated my efforts. I already have many recipes which were good for the particular month on the blog.

As this year ends, I will start sharing new recipes from January 2019. I have started working on the cause now I know what is in season every month.

So getting back to the October Produce List, let’s see what is in store for us.

When To Give- Easy Baby Meals-www.easybabymeals.com

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 +

Apple,  Summer Squash, and Winter Squash.

These are simple fruits and vegetables which are filled with required nutrients for our new eaters. Just steaming them and turning them into puree can make a delicious meal.

8 Months +

Broccoli, Cantaloupe, Dates, Corn, Cucumber, Lima Beans, Basil, Spinach, Watermelon, Oregano, Thyme, and Mint

I introduce Lima Beans to my little one through soup and puree. Broccoli, too, makes a great addition to soups as well as purees.

Dates can be introduced at this age through breakfast porridge.

Cantaloupe, cucumber, and watermelon make a great no-cook meal. Just turning them into a puree or grating them can turn them into a meal.

While adding a few herbs mentioned above can do wonders to your little one’s meal.

10 Months +

Carrots, Mandarines, Pumpkins, Parsley, Sage, and Rosemary.

Mandarines make a nutritious finger/ snack food. My daughter loved and still loves snacking on these fruits.

Pumpkins will be in stores now, so get one, turn it into a puree, and store. You can use it for soups, desserts, etc., for your little ones.

Carrots can be introduced to your little one’s diet now. They will have a delicious flavor of their own. You can enhance it by adding rosemary or sage.

1 Year+

Grapefruit, Mushrooms, Tomatoes, Cabbage, and Lavender.

I introduced raw tomatoes to my daughter after her 1 year birthday when she was actually able to chew the little tomato pieces.

I also waited until her one-year birthday for the rest of the vegetables 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.
