In this quick tip episode from my “How to serve…” series, I’m teaching you all about lentils! These are an amazing option for babies and toddlers – they’re versatile, so can be added to many, many recipes, they’re nutritious, and they’re an easy texture for babies just beginning solids. I know they may not be something that many people think of adding to their regular meal rotation, but I’m here to convince you to give them a try!
So, I’ll be giving you everything you need to know about serving lentils to your baby and toddler. Including why they’re so nutritious, how to prepare them, what phase of my signature Texture Timeline™ they’re part of, and ideas on tasty ways to offer them to your baby.
