For the past few weeks I’ve been working on something to share with all of you…
A free cookbook that includes some of my favorite “recipes” to make for my kids! Included are 2 recipes each for Baby Purees, Breakfast, Lunch, Snacks, and Dinner. I LOVE cooking for my kids, and including them in meal time, but sometimes can’t think of any fresh ideas. Trying new foods and whipping up new meals is as fun for me as it is for my kids. There’s no guarantee that a child will always eat what you put in front of them (I’m an avid cook, cookbook collector, recipe try-er, and weird food taster and even growing up with me as their mother- my kids are still the boss of what goes into their mouths). The best I can do is to offer varying options that at least present the opportunity for new tastes to develop. It’s never too late, or too early, to start introducing new meals to our kids. Options are the spice of life and enjoying meal time and togetherness is an incredible way to spend time as a family.
Here’s a sneak peak at one of the baby food recipes I’ve included. We love it right from the squeeze pouch (that’s how my daughter, Grace, prefers to eat most of her food), but it’s equally delicious served traditionally from a spoon. My almost-three-year-old even loves to grab one out of the fridge as a smoothie-esque snack! (If you are interested in knowing more about making your own squeeze pouch baby food, click here.)
And ok, ok. Here are a few more!

Munchies For Munchkins Cookbook
(if you are opening on an iPad or iPhone, tap the screen and select “open in iBooks”. Once there, tap collections and select “PDF”. That’s where Munchies for Munchkins will be hiding!)
I hope you enjoy these recipes as much as we do! Share them, try them, let me know what you think.
Happy Friday! Bon Apetit!

This is so great! I love that egg/kale wrap. My kids would totally gobble that up! We are three sisters who blog about all things creative (and we are locals too :)) lets connect on FB and twitter. I will be sure to follow tonight when I am on the computer. I am loving your blog!

Love it! Definitely sharing with all my friends!
You should put more images on this page to pin (especially the lunch ideas one. the breakfast ideas are great too). That would be an easy way to get lots more pinterest followers (sorry, my brain is almost always thinking business!).
Added some more recipes, Kelly. Forgot that they can’t be pinned if they’re not posted! Thanks for the suggestion 🙂
