“Are you introducing solid food to your child yet?,’ asked by Sage’s pediatrician the last time we visited him.  Of course, I answered the doctor with a resounding ‘YES!’ He then made follow-up questions, ‘Are you using natural food and prepare them with your hands? No blender or food processor?’ I proudly said, ‘Yes, doctor!’ With a smile, the doctor said, ‘Good!’ Before that conversation with my son’s Pediatrician, I was almost tempted to buy organic ready-to-eat baby food in the grocery store – for my convenience! 🙂 But now, I was thinking to just continue preparing Sage’s food at home. It’s time-consuming, but I know it’ll be worth it! 

Today, I thought of cooking something that has vegetable, fish and rice for my little boy’s lunch. When I checked our refrigerator, I found a piece of squash and a couple of Salmon steak. One is rich in vitamin A (good for the eyes)  while the latter is the number one source of DHA OMEGA 3 (good for the heart and brain). I combined those two nutritious ingredients with the rice that I was cooking and tried to achieve that porridgy consistency. It took me about 20-30 minutes to cook it! 🙂

I was so happy to see my baby’s reaction when he saw the food that I prepared for him…

I asked his dad to take a picture of him, but Sage didn’t want to be disturbed while he’s eating. He even tried to get the camera from his father and gave him this look…

I think my experiment was a success because he ate a bowl of the food that I made! YAY!!!!

A simple joy of a mother!
