Feeding your Baby: Workshop

Introducing solids to your baby is an exciting milestone for any parent. Along with the excitement come many questions, concerns and sometimes even wonder and worry. When should I start my baby on rice cereal? When should I venture to purees? Which purees do I start with? Should they be organic? Do they contain nitrates? Should I make my own or buy the jar kind? If I make my own how do I freeze portions? Gerber? Beechnut? PC Organics? When is it safe to give fish, chicken, meat or eggs? Feeding your baby soon becomes a world of stress and confusion when it should be an exciting time! This informative 3-hour interactive workshop eases the worry and stress and brings back the excitement of this fun milestone.

ABC Chicken Soup
My family's chicken soup recipe but with a toddler twist. You can add salt if you like, I don't. Nutritious, delicious and fun to eat!


Servings: 8 - Half Cup Servings
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 1 hour 45 minutes
Total time: 1 hour 50 minutes

Ingredients:
2 medium carrots chopped
3 celery stalks chopped
1 whole roma tomato
1 medium skinless, boneless chicken breast
8 cups water
1/2 cup of Eden Organic Vegetable Alphabets
Directions:
Put the carrots, celery, tomato and chicken breast in a 4-quart saucepan.

Add water

Cover slightly with lid and heat to boiling over high heat.

Reduce heat to medium and let simmer for 1.5 hours, stirring occasionally(the longer you cook the more flavour)

Using tongs remove roma tomato (if there are some bits of tomato in the soup don't worry. Taking the peel out is the most important) and discard.

Also remove the chicken from saucepan to plate and cut into small pieces (easy for baby to eat)

Return chicken to saucepan, increase heat to high and bring soup to a boil.

Add ABC pasta to boiling soup and follow instructions on box.

Once pasta is tender, let soup cool and serve to your little one.

I make this much soup purposely so I can freeze portions.

I love cooking with my kids. We typically make cookies or muffins but my oldest daughter (11yrs) has begun to help me with making dinner. She loves chopping vegetables. Techlazy.com Crazyask.com Howmate.com
