pancakes for babies

3.11.2013







Our baby is quickly becoming a little man. When people say kids grow up so fast, I didn't realize this fast. He's beginning to eat table foods now and boy, can he eat. I'm constantly trying to think of new things to feed him these days.

We had a nice, lazy Sunday yesterday. Gary and I decided to stay in and whip up some breakfast (more like brunch). And when I was pulling out ingredients to start some pancakes, I realized I can adjust a few things to make it baby friendly. I read it is not recommended to give babies under one years old egg whites, milk, and butter. So, I substituted milk for yogurt (which Austin's been eating for a couple months now) and applesauce for butter. As for the egg, I simply separated the egg white and yolk (only using the yolk). I cut the pancakes into strips so he can easily hold them.

All I have to say is that there were no leftovers, not even a piece on the ground. Hooray!
