My baby ate so much butternut squash when we started him on solids, that it actually became his nickname!  Squash is divinely nutritious for little ones + very easy to digest.  In fact, it is one of my favourites for baby’s first foods.

Using bone broth as a base adds to the overall nutritional content + is very nourishing to their gut lining which becomes an important aspect of nutrition when introducing solids.

I prefer to hold off for about 6 weeks upon starting solids, before making blends or combinations such as this.  For brand new bites, try roasting a squash then puree with a healthy fat (coconut oil), bone or vegetable broth + VOILA!  

World’s Healthiest Baby Food!
