off to the store for puree baby food making session. So far I know she likes snap peas ( boiled and pureed in shell), and sweat potatoes, and (carrots of course but have to buy those). Any other great veg recommendation. I'm stumped and don't feel she is getting a good variety of veg. (she is going on 8 months). Also, I have a vitamix so can grind just about anything to a puree. Thanks

You can put sweet potato (or even white potatoes) with everything - fruit, meat, other veggies. So make some blends.

I made butternut, acorn and spaghetti squash, peas, green beans, corn, carrots, spinach, sweet potato and white potato purees. The beauty of making all those separate purees is that I could make whatever blends I wanted. Mash some fresh avocado for her also. Good luck!

Broccoli, cauliflower, sweet potato, spinach, green beans, zucchini, peas, corn(not that nutritious but good to add to other stuff for sweetness), parsnips, carrots, avocado, butternut squash and pumpkin... add pear puree to any of these and it is delicious.

MIne loved all forms of squash.
beets, beets, and more beets
chopped spinach in cream cheese
Does she have teeth? I let mine gnaw on canned beans. Mine had teeth at 6 months.
I also made a broccoli cheese casserole with rice I didn't have to puree.

Avacado also freezes beautifully! I was shocked!

Tell you what, after I pureed veggies and my little boy was onto finger foods, Veg-All was his favorite! mixed veggies and potatos in one and they were bite size already!

I bought freezer steamer bags of veggies and pureed all of those.

Steam spinach and pears - puree. Shockingly delicious!

My dd LOVES avacado. It is her favorite and is so easy-just mash with a fork, mix with a tiny bit of formula/breast milk, and that's it! Supposedly avacado is one of the "perfect" foods for infants, nutrition-wise. I sliced it into about 8 sections, and froze half of it, in slices in freezer bags. Thaws out just fine. Also, butternut squash makes a really nice puree and she likes that too. I just cut it in half and baked it, scooped out the squash into my food processor, and that's it It freezes really nice and is the same nice smooth puree when thawed as well.

My son loved zuchinni and squash. I'd cook it, puree it, freeze what I didn't want for that week. Then when it came time to eat it, i'd thicken it up (since it's kinda runny) with rice cereal. (I cooked the two separate - zuchinni for one meal, squash for another).
