Here is a best way to encourage your little-ones to love vegetables from an early age. I have added 5 Vegetable Finger Snacks in 5 steps.

How much to Serve:
1/2 cup - ( for 8 - 11 months baby )
3/4 cup - ( for 12+ months baby )


Step 1: Carrot Figner Snack

  • Peel the carrot and slice into tiny fingers
  • Heat a frying pan and pour a tsp of oil
  • Add the carrot pieces and cook until soft on medium-heat.
    (takes 4 - 5 minutes)
  • note: if the carrot dries quickly, add 1/4 cup of water and cook until soft.
  • Once the carrot turns soft, take them into a serving bowl.
  • Let it cool before serving ..

Step 2: Sweet Potato Finger Snack

  • Peel the sweet potato and chop into tiny fingers or sticks ..
  • Heat a frying pan and pour a tsp of oil
  • Add the sweet potato pieces and cook until soft and sligthly crisp around the edges.
