I used this website http://www.wholesomebabyfood.com/ for ideas for my daughter's first meals. It also has instructions on how to prepare age recommended food and how to store it as well. I especially found this website helpful as my daughter entered a new age bracket, to find out what other exciting food options were available to her. My daughter's favorite? Summer Squash!!! http://wholesomebabyfood.com/VegetableRecipes.htm
Squash (summer) 6-8months+
(nutrient info for squash of all types may be found at our "Tips on Squash" page)
1. Choose yellow squash or zucchini that are somewhat small in diameter, as these are the most tender.
2. Wash squash thoroughly and cut into small slices or chunks. Do not remove skins.
(*You may remove skins however an infant over the age of 8 months old should be able to digest squash puree with skins on)
3. Steam until tender then place into your choice of appliance for pureeing and begin pureeing.
4. Add water as necessary to achieve a smooth, thin consistency
