Cookies for Babies

Does anyone have a receipe for cookies I can make for my 10 month old? Actually any baby food recipes would be appreciated. I think he is getting bored with the jarred foods from the supermarkets.

Thanks,

Roxanne,

When my son was a baby, he liked Vanilla Wafer cookies, especially when he was teething. As for baby food, I got some great advice from my Dad when there were recall alerts for baby food sold in jars because of glass slivers found in it. Since we've always had a garden and I can and freeze alot of the produce, I made baby food from the garden. Pureed the vegetables and put them in ice cube trays until frozen, then stored the cubes in large freezer bags. One or two cubes thawed in microwave for feedings. His favorite was squash and carrots mixed. I also used one of those small blenders which you turn on by twisting the top cover. He could eat more variety by the time he was about your baby's age, even meats which I added liquid to and pureed. Almost anything we had for dinner, I pureed for him (minus the spices). Sometimes adding more liquid is necessary for smoother baby food. Bananas and apples blended together he liked, also. For a breakfast baby cereal, I made cooked rice, added milk, cinnamon and a little sugar, blended it while warm. I think my Dad was pretty smart about everything ;) but this advice sure worked well, and was probably healthier. Gave me peace of mind, too, after the recalls. PS: Love the picture-what a cutie!

I used a blender to make baby food from whatever we were eating for a meal. If it was something that wouldn't work well, one of their favorites was cottage cheese blended with fruit - peaches, pears, mandarin oranges, bananas, etc. They loved it!

Don't forget yogurt!! It's a good source of calcium and you can get it blended nice and smooth. Mashed bananas, too. The baby is just a doll!! I am getting our little 7 month old grandson Cheerios and baby puffs for his Easter basket. They have several different flavors of baby puffs at Walmart. Gerber is another source for these. They seem to just dissolve on Baby's tongue, even better than Cheerios so choking is at a minimum.

Hi there:

When my two kids were babies, I made all of their food fresh rather than buy the jars. For example, cook yams until soft (either microwave or steam), peel and place in your food processor. Process until smooth adding a touch of water if needed to get the right consistency. This method can then be basically translated to almost anything you wish to make for your baby, i.e., applesauce, strained peaches, etc. Play around with it and have some fun. I know it helped my kids adjust to "real" food as they grew with their tastebuds.

At 10 months of age, let him begin to eat a lot of small finger foods too. Also, there is a fantastic little mesh feeder with a handle that you can put hard foods like cookies, carrots, etc., in and he can nibble on the food without any chance of choking. This was created by a father who's child almost choked to death on a teething biscuit.

WHEELS OF STEEL

1/2 cup peanut butter

Add the dry ingredients to the wet and stir well. Add liquid milk, oats and raisins. Blend. On a greased cookie sheet place a heaping spoonful of dough and spread in a circle. Leave an inch or more between cookies, as they spread. Sprinkle with sesame seeds on top and press into dough. Bake at 375 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes. Allow cookies to cool before removing as they are very fragile while warm.

BANANA OATMEAL COOKIES

3/4 cup shortening

1 cup brown sugar

1 egg, beaten

1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. cinnamon

1/4 tsp. nutmeg

1 3/4 cups oatmeal, uncooked

Cream shortening with sugar and then add the egg and mix well. Mix flour, soda, cinnamon and nutmeg together and add to creamed mixture and blend till smooth. Add mashed banana and oatmeal next. Blend. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet and bake at 400 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes.

Optional additions: raisins, nuts, wheat germ, sunflower seeds, grated orange peel.

OVERNIGHT OATMEAL COOKIES

4 cups oatmeal, uncooked

2 cups brown sugar

1 cup vegetable oil

The next morning add:

2 eggs, beaten

1 tsp. vanilla or almond extract

Mix well. Drop by spoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 300 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes. Watch them carefully. Remove cookies from baking sheet while still warm or you may never get them off later.

Let me know if you would like additional recipes.
