Baby Zucchini

on February 17, 2014

Baby zucchini, also know as courgettes, are often forgotten about when it comes to baby foods.  This squash is tender enough to roast & purée with the skin for infants and is easily sliced & roasted with olive oil.  A tasty, healthy snack for my VERY active toddler.  

I simple take a baby zucchini, wash, slice, brush olive oil on both sides, place on baking sheet and roast at 300F degrees for about 10 minutes or until the start of a light brown color appears.  I actually use the toaster oven.  Pretty damn easy!

Not only is this easy, this zucchini contains folate, antioxidants, potassium, vitamin C, beta carotene, moderate levels of B complex vitamins, iron, phosphorus, manganese, and zinc.  Pretty good for that baby of yours and you too!
