So for the record, Layla wasn’t a huge fan of green beans when I first made them for her. She’d gag, cough, make faces… it was actually kind of entertaining even though she wasn’t very happy with me for giving her green beans 🙂

But green beans are so great for babies! They are rich in vitamin A and fiber, and they’re a green veggie which helps get babies used to not-so-sweet things. I’d recommend using organic frozen green beans for this recipe – it’s the easiest prep and clean-up wise. It’s simple to make this baby food puree recipe.

My trick for getting Layla to eat green beans: mixing them with whole milk organic yogurt! It sounds gross, but for some reason she loves it.
