I tried baby food for about a month, but they never really liked it. So from a very young age they have been eating regular food. I would say since about 8 months there has been no baby food. People are often surprised by this, but it has just worked for us. We would struggle to get them to eat baby food, but when we would put small bites of banana on their tray they would gobble it down. So we just decided to cut out baby food. It had many many messes, but babies clean up easy! :)
Some of their favorite foods now are blueberries, green beans, bananas, cheese, peaches, yogurt, pasta, meatballs, and they both love sloppy joes. It's nice that for the most part we are able to eat as a family and eat the same meal. Sometimes I have to switch protiens for the babies if they can't eat what we are, or I might have to steam our vegetables more that I would for just Will and I, but it's worth it.
Now if I can just teach Penny to stop throwing her food on the ground when she's done...
|Penny feeding herself for the first time. Sweet Potatoes|
|Ben eating breakfast. Eggs, black beans, cheese and tortilla|
|Baby size take on Easter dinner.|
|One of our current favorite lunches, chicken and cheese quesadilla, steamed carrots and grapes cut in half.|
