What We Ate this Week | June 9-15

I'm always looking for new ideas of things to feed the boys and decided I'd like to start keeping track of what they're eating on a weekly basis to remember what worked, what to keep trying and hopefully to build out a nice list of successful foods.

I won't be as detailed each week, probably just listing out the new foods they have instead.

Smoothie recipes:

So far, I've done 3 basic combinations:
  • Almond butter, banana, yogurt (+baby oatmeal and probiotics)
  • Green smoothie: kiwi, avocado, spinach, carrot juice, strawberries (+baby oatmeal and probiotics)
  • Banana, berries, peach, yogurt  (+baby oatmeal and probiotics)
Initially William didn't like smoothies, then I made the almond butter-banana one and he started drinking them. Now he'll drink the other kinds too. He definitely doesn't love them, but will drink about half at breakfast and then finish the other half later in the morning.
