My wife and I decided a few days ago to start Rylan on some green vegetables. The doctor said to start him on orange vegetables so now that we have finished those, we are moving on.
We picked up a few different types of vegetables and even some spinach. My wife was reluctant at first but we decided to get it over with now in hopes that Rylan will be able to stomach it later in life. Neither my wife or I like spinach but we decided to try Rylan on the spinach first to get it out of the way. We are making our own baby food with a food processor and after my wife smelled it, she wasn't too pleased. The taste of the spinach however was basically nothing. Maybe it was because we watered it down so much.
Rylan took to the spinach pretty well after his initial pucker face. He quickly ate the entire bowl and soon after I snapped the photo from above. The smile says a lot I think.
My wife has a book with some baby recipes. We are very curious about these and once we go through each of the vegetables with Rylan, we plan on trying some of them. I will certainly post any of the ones that seem to work out.
