Make baby's first Thanksgiving extra special with baby-friendly recipes for Thanksgiving favorites.
Posted by Our Baby Our World on 11/20/2013 to Parenting
Though it's absolutely essential to get at least one shot of baby "eating" a huge turkey drumstick on Thanksgiving, this most delicious of holidays isn't exactly geared toward those with more tender palates!

But don't worry: Though your little one may not be chowing down on turkey and cranberries just yet, she can still have a taste of that Thanksgiving goodness, thanks to these baby-friendly recipes!

Sweet Potatoes for Your Sweet Potato
Sweet potatoes or yams aren't just tasty Thanksgiving treats; they're also packed with healthy nutrients. Before you prepare your grown-up side dish, set aside some of the steamed or boiled sweet potatoes.

Add a dash of cinnamon, a drizzle of real maple syrup, small pat of butter, and blend the mixture into a smooth puree in your Dex Make, Store and Serve Baby Food Processor.

Older babies will enjoy fork-mashed sweet potatoes; while more experienced eaters can pick up steamed or boiled potatoes cut into squares. The pureed version also makes a great dip for soft veggies like string beans.

Stuffed with Stuffing
Babies nine months and older can enjoy a taste of stuffing. Simply chop the onions and celery into a very fine dice and really soak that bread to get it nice and soft.

(KidCo's baby food feeding systems make it super easy to get that perfect texture!)

Use whole-grain bread for an extra-healthy boost, and don't include nuts or dried fruits in baby's portion, as these foods present choking hazards.

Sweet Treat
Though the joys of apple pie may be a few years in the future, make baby his own sweet desert by peeling, coring and slicing an apple. In a saucepan, cover with water and boil until soft (test for doneness using a fork, it should slide in easily). Drain, add a part of butter, a sprinkle of cinnamon and mash with a fork until soft. Yummy!

So pull baby's high chair right up to the table, load her little plate with Thanksgiving goodness, and enjoy the holiday feast!

Don't forget your camera...
