Delicious and Nutritious Meals for Your Littlest Foodie!

Baby’s Thanksgiving Dinner Recipe

Thanksgiving recipes for babiesAs we approach Thanksgiving my Littlest Foodie is enjoying Thanksgiving-like meals.  This one was a hit.  I used ground turkey, but on Thanksgiving Day I’ll use a little of that beautiful bird we’ll be cooking up!


  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1/2 cup ground turkey
  • 1/4 cup cooked quinoa or rice
  • 1/4 cup cranberries – washed
  • 1 large sweet apple – peeled, cored and chopped into 1 inch chunks
  • 1 cup water


Heat a small skillet on medium heat with olive oil.  Cook ground turkey in the skillet until cooked through.  Cook quinoa or rice according to package instructions — I brought 1 cup of water to a boil, added a 1/2 cup of quinoa, reduced heat, covered and cooked for about 10 minutes until water was absorbed.  I ended up with extra quinoa which refrigerates well for a couple days.

In a small sauce pan, bring 1 cup of water to a boil, add cranberries and apples and cook for about 10 minutes until cranberries have softened.  Combine all ingredients in a blender or food processor, including some of the cranberry/apple cooking water.  Blend until you reach desired consistency.  Serve to your Littlest Foodie once cooled.

Happy Thanksgiving!
