What makes these parsnips and nutmeg bread bites so good for your baby?

  • Parsnips are a wonderful source of folate, thiamine, and vitamin B6, which is essential for the development of a strong nervous system and healthy brain. Vitamin B6 also helps to maintain baby's sleep cycle.

  • Nutmeg has compounds that can kill harmful bacteria, and it also offers small amounts of a variety of vitamins, minerals, and fiber to support baby’s overall health and development.

  • Olive oil is a good source of healthy fats and the antioxidant vitamin E, which supports healthy immune and neurological development in growing babies.

¾ cup all purpose flour

1 tbsp olive oil

¼ tsp nutmeg

Black pepper to taste

Notes


Suitable: for the whole family from 6 months old. But we recommend this dish to babies 9+ months in order to allow for time to rule out some possible food allergies or intolerance before you start offering preparations with several ingredients like this one.


Age up: If offering this recipe to an older baby (12+ months) or an adult you may add a little salt if desired. Keep in mind that it is recommended to avoid salt for babies under 12 months.


Flavor up:

  • If you want to make these bread bites even more flavorful, try adding fresh or dry herbs like rosemary, dill, oregano and basil.


Boost nutrition:

  • Try adding a tablespoon of pulverized nuts or a tablespoon of seeds such as chia seeds, flaxseed, or hemp seeds. They will add texture, plant protein, fiber, healthy fats, vitamins and minerals. Make sure to rule out possible allergies to nuts before adding it to this recipe.

Involving your children:

  • Under 6+ months: have them watch you prepare. Show them how you combine all the ingredients. Tell them the names of the ingredients as you add them to help build baby's vocabulary.

  • 18+ months: have them watch you prepare. Show them how to and let them try to combine all the ingredients. Show them how to and let them try to mash cooked parsnips. Show them how to and let them try to measure the spices and other ingredients. Tell them the names of the ingredients as you add them to help build their vocabulary.


★Focus on offering single ingredient foods or very simple recipes (1-3 ingredients) at the early stages - the first 1-2 months of starting solids. You may offer more elaborated recipes on a more occasional basis for babies beginning to eat. This will help your baby get familiar with the natural taste of foods but still getting it "pimped-up" in recipes every once in a while. It will also allow you to expose your baby to a few different foods, and make it easier for you to rule out some possible food allergies or intolerance before you start offering preparations with several ingredients regularly.


★The final consistency is probably the equivalent of a baked dumpling or gnocchi, meaning it can be used in that way as well.


★You may keep a few of the cooked bread bites in the freezer as a quick and healthy option for a snack or breakfast.
