I love autumn—the way it looks, the way it tastes… and I am so excited to share the season with my toddler. That said, he is the pickiest darn eater you ever did meet. But I’ve managed to find a few fall foods he can enjoy with me.
Here are a few of my go-tos (along with a few more aspirational ones I can’t wait to try).
Tried and True: Mashed Pumpkin & Banana
Mashed pumpkin with banana; I’ve been feeding it to him since he was a baby (related: you can and should feed pumpkin to your baby) and though it looks gross, he gobbles it up it is so healthy! Less sloppy variations on this include banana pumpkin bread or muffins. During the Autumn, Trader Joe’s has an everything pumpkin section with easy-peasy boxes for making “homemade” baked goods.
Crowd-Pleaser: Sweet Potato Pie
Crazy-Cute and Healthy: Veggie & Hummus Skeleton
Can’t-Wait-to-Try: Sweet Potato Jack-O-Lanterns
As we cruise through the fall and head toward Hannukah and Thanksgiving, the crispy potatoes in latkes are so messy but super fun. You can hide veggies in there too.
Happy autumn eating!
