This week we asked: What does food exploration look like?
From Abbie: “Joshua started solids at about six months old through baby-led weaning. While he still got most of his nutrition from breastmilk, he loved exploring the textures, colors, flavors and aromas of solid food. We found that cold apple slices made great teethers!”
Abbie, who blogs at Farmer’s Daughter, loved that she could skip purees and just feed him off of her own plate.

From Rachael: “The Critter enjoys a smoothie! However, after this first smoothie, he refused to have any more. Ah, yes, he’s not the only one experimenting: his father and I are also experimenting at the grocery store, in the farmer’s market, and at the kitchen, trying to find and make foods the Critter will enjoy.”

From Nada: “Sure, the sandwich is bigger than the baby! Hey! A breastfeeding mom’s gotta keep up her caloric intake. It’s not my fault she wants to practice baby-led weaning already! (Actually she didn’t til she was 6 months.)”

From Jennifer: “There is no such thing as not liking a food, you just haven’t found the right preparation, yet!”
“That said, we were determined to find a way to enjoy brussel sprouts. And, as a family, we did! Fresh off the stalk, drizzled in garlic and oil, roasted, we all ate them like treats!”
