Baby Food - Zucchini

I didn't think Brody would really like this, because lately he has been seeing anything green and not wanting to eat it - BUT he ate this and seemed to keep wanting more, so we might have a green veggie winner!!

Choose zucchini that are somewhat small in diameter, as these are the most tender.

Wash squash thoroughly and cut into small slices or chunks. Do not remove skins. (*The skin contains most of the nutrients....You may remove skins however an infant of 7-8 months old should be able to digest squash puree with skins on)

Steam until tender (or boil for 10 minutes) then place into your choice of appliance for pureeing and begin pureeing. This becomes very watery when cooked; so you don't need to add any water when pureeing.
