Now that your little eater is a pro at single ingredient purees, we’ll expand her palate by incorporating a combination of fruits and veggies, and adding herbs and spices. You’ll also learn how to use leftover purees to create more advanced dishes for your little eater (and ones you can make for your whole family!). Sample Menu:  zucchini “soup” puree, peach-cinnamon pouches, sautéed summer squash puree with garlic and basil, and chicken risotto.
