Gabe is past the stage of “I do it myself” and will accept a spoon sometimes, which allows for food to be slightly messier than just finger food. Still, I find it peaks his interest more if I place the food directly on his tray, with at least some large pieces he can pick up himself.
Oatmeal cooked with homogenized milk and mixed berries, cooled down with a spoonful of plain full-fat yogurt. The berries were a combination of pitted cherries, blackberries, and blueberries.
Diced fresh pineapple
An egg scrambled with feta cheese, spinach, and olive oil.
And YES, he ate it all!
Tuna with a spoonful of mayonaise and a dash of pepper. I use canned tuna after thoroughly rinsing off the salt in a strainer.
Diced cheddar cheese
Sweet potato fries. I used the President Choice frozen ones. Big hit!
Kidney beans seasoned with a spoonful of slow cooker chilli. I tried giving him the chilli for lunch – since it wasn’t spicy at all – still he hated it. He was happy with a little flavour in his beans though!
A chicken leg cooked in the slow cooker with olive oil and seasonings. I scrape it off the bone a roughly dice into smaller pieces.
