  • If your baby is eating solids you can serve pumpkin. Just make sure it's the right size and texture for your baby's age.
  • Use organic pumpkin when possible.
  • If you cook your own pumpkin and it's too stringy, you're likely not cooking it long enough OR you're scooping out the pumpkin too close to the shell.
  • If you use a pumpkin puree, make sure it's NOT pumpkin pie filling. You want unsweetened, spice-free puree to start with. You can add spice yourself.
  • Always follow baby food safety tips.
Ideas: If your baby is a self-feeder now, try some adorable and yummy pumpkin pancakes. Make easy as pie pumpkin oatmeal. Simply mix 1/4 cup oatmeal, 1/4 cup organic pumpkin puree and 1/4 cup organic applesauce. Mix this to the correct texture. Add a dash of cinnamon and serve. Baked pumpkin slices are a great treat, sort of like candy sweet potatoes, but not so sweet. Cut small slices of pumpkin and place onto a prepared baking pan or dish (lightly oiled). Sprinkle a tiny bit of melted butter and some brown sugar over the slices. Add a dash of nutmeg if you like. Bake in the oven at 325 degrees for about 20 minutes. Turn the slices over and add butter, sugar and spice to the other side of the slices. Bake for another 20 to 30 minutes. This is a good treat for self-feeders but you should make sure it's baked super soft. More ideas:
