Jonathan’s Meal #1

While everyone is talking about Bento, I should start sharing on a baby’s meal. I’m a new mother and still learning and experimenting on what is best for a baby’s diet. Jonathan boy is my experiment. Glad to say that he will wallop all kinds of food except Avocado so far.

I’ve also shared in my previous post on how I prepare the porridge. Just dump everything in the ceramic pot.

So let’s see what is on Jonathan’s dinning table today.

Grated beetroot and florets of broccoli

Beets or beetroots contain a wonderful amount of calcium, potassium and even vitamin A.  Whereas, broccoli is very high in Vitamin C and is a great source of soluble fiber.

    The colour looks so nice and yummy 🙂 Did you put in any meat at all? What do you used for seasoning?

    Caroline – You can add meat/fish as you like. I don’t add any seasoning to Jonathan’s porridge. Try to train him to eat it plain.

    June – Beetroot can be cooked with any combination too. Give it a try.

    Joanne – I normally buy beets from supermarket. Hardly can see it it wetmarket.

    Ryan’s mami – Try on Ryan. Wonder if he likes it since he’s kinda choosy on food, right?

    Littlelamb – It’s not as sweet as sweet potato but it does add some taste to the porridge. When you eat it raw, it’s just like chinese turnip.

    HuiSia – Hope Eli likes it too despite the colour.
