Baby's First Thanksgiving Solids Meal
With Thanksgiving just around the corner, our Flavor of the Month fits right in with the traditional meal November is known for. Turkey and Sweet Potato with Sage, one of our signature dishes, is packed with deliciousness and nutritional goodness alike. Turkey is an ideal growth food for babies as it is packed with protein and vitamin B12, which is not found in plants. This purée combines turkey with vitamin-rich vegetables including sweet potato, carrot and celery and is finished off with a hint of sage giving it a full and rounded flavor. It's baby's first Thanksgiving in one, easy meal.
Here's the recipe. And if your little one is beyond baby purees, you can skip the last step and serve the turkey mixture over rice or pasta or even as a filling in a tortilla.
