These vegetable quinoa biscuits are a wholesome and complete snack or meal for babies and toddlers, packed with nutrition and perfectly sized for small hands.
Most of what Hailey (8 months old) has been eating lately is simple, whole foods. We are still loving baby-led weaning and she is eating a lot of food like broccoli and chicken. Peas and cheese. Avocado and black beans. That’s what most of her meals looks like- simple and easy.
However, I’m ready to introduce more creative combinations to allow her to try new tastes and textures, so I started playing around in the kitchen and came up with a combo of healthy foods and turned them into a Vegetable Quinoa Biscuit for Baby.These do have eggs in them, but I’ve already given Hailey whole eggs and am comfortable that she doesn’t have any allergies to them. These also contain parsley, which is a baby super food! *Experts say that babies should only eat parsley that has been cooked until they are 9 months old.
They sure looked pretty, but for the true test, I needed Hailey to let me know if these vegetable quinoa biscuits passed the baby taste test.
She immediately grabbed it and stuck it in her mouth. Then pulled it out and looked at it before putting it back in.
As she proceeded to chow down on the biscuit, it became quite crumbly. She must have liked the taste because she devoured it, but it crumbled all over. So much for a tidy treat!
We hope you enjoy these as much as we do!Print

*Note: obviously these make a healthy snack for adults, too, but you may want to add more seasonings and ingredients to please an adult palate, as these are more simple to be appropriate for tiny tummies.
