Popeye was never wrong when spinach always gave him strength. Despite the underlying violent confrontation in this cartoon, I like Popeye for advocating spinach to young children. My nephew, a very picky eater eats his spinach because of that visual impact.
The good thing for us, is we are now able to start kids liking this wonderful leafy green vegetable full of calcium by making this spinach puree. You can start giving this to your baby 7 months and up.
Ingredient Selection Tips:
- Fresh spinach is readily available in summer, early spring and fall. When buying it, choose the one with dark green leaves.
- You can just take out some of the wilted leaves as long as the topmost ones are still fresh. No blemish but some holes on their leaves like caterpillar bites should cause you worry.
- Buy organic. Or better yet, you can plant this in a tendril in your backyard.
