Broccoli is Best!! 

We have a winner!!!  

 
Weaning weaning weaning!!! We have been experimenting this week with a variety of ‘finger foods’ with little joy!! 

Although Evelyn likes to put everything in her mouth she turns her nose up to the foods that I put on her tray! 

We have tried

  • Rusks, 
  • Puffed sticks, 
  • carrots, 
  • cucumber, 
  • breadsticks, 
  • banana, 
  • apple slices but nada!!

All thrown on the floor without a second glance! 
Tonight, whilst making dinner for me and Adam I noticed that the broccoli I was cooking had nice long stems. “Worth a try!” These were the results (excuse the Rab C Nesbitt vest! Haha)

  
   

SUCCESS!!! 

I’m not sure how much of it she ate, but it’s a step in the right direction!! 

Broccoli’s benefits for baby are mammoth! Not only is it packed with nutrients such as calcium, iron and vitamin c but it contains  phytonutrients, one of which – sulforaphane – which is a powerful, natural weapon against cancer. There are many studies to indicate that a diet rich in broccoli can help protect the body against cancer AND support both heart and stomach health. What’s more broccoli boosts the baby’s immune system and has anti-inflamitory properties! Yum yum yum!!!!
