Adventures in Baby Food Making: Waffles and Banana-YO

I’m gonna eat what?

It’s true. Sometimes I feed my baby things I’d never eat and, well, actually find gross. This is one of them, but when you look at from a growing baby nutritional standpoint I’m totally justified. At least I think am.

According to, 1 large egg yolk has just over 50 calories, 5 g of fat and 3 g of protein. It’s also a good source of Folate and Vitamin B12. Mix one in with a sweet banana and a dollop of yogurt and you’ve got yourself a nice little meal for baby. Will he eat it? Find out in our next Baby Food Adventureā€¦.
