No. 91 of the twins’ first #1000Foods with #FingerFoodFirst was Butternut Squash!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I love Butternut Squash but can’t stand cutting it so when I saw that Fresh Direct was selling it cubed online, I jumped.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Butternut Squash is a win-win for babies starting out on solids: it has loads of nutrients, including Vitamin A and a fair amount of Iron, Vitamin C and Potassium and it’s naturally sweet when cooked, which is why you are probably starting to see it in pouches. It’s the new sweet potato in baby food.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
There are a number of ways you can prepare Butternut Squash, though roasting is my favorite. For some suggested preps and cuts, see my previous post.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⭐️FunFact: Butternut Squash is technically a fruit!

Okay, all you InstaPot lovers. Tell me if that contraption of yours—which I still believe is too big for my nyc kitchen—can roast butternut squash. Not steam it, not pressure cook it, but roast it until lightly browned. Because Butternut Squash was meant to be roasted.🔥
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As the new sweet potato in baby food, Butternut Squash is showing up everywhere in pouches. I love Butternut Squash, but please don’t be fooled: it’s typically employed as a sweetener just like apples, bananas, pears and sweet potatoes. It’s what covers up all the other veggies in that otherwise savory purée...
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But if you can find pre-cut Butternut Squash, go for it. It’s delicious on it’s own when roasted and you can throw the rest on a kale salad for yourself.🛁
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Roasted Butternut Squash
·  Pre-cut Butternut Squash
·  Avocado oil, vegeteable oil or grapeseed oil
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Toss the squash in oil and spread out on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Roast in the oven for 20 minutes. Cool and serve.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⭐️ProTip: If you can’t find a pre-cut Butternut Squash, just cut a whole Butternut Squash in half vertically and rub the cut sides with oil. Then, place them cut-side down on a cookie sheet and roast at 425 degrees for 45 minutes. Once cool, scoop out the flesh and serve as a mash with pre-loaded spoons or just in a bowl for baby to hand-scoop on her own.

There are countless baby food cookbooks that will have you folding cooked Butternut Squash into muffins, ravioli, and endless casseroles to sneak vegetables into your kids food.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
For a picky 3 year old, I get it. I do. Mine eats only two vegetables (sweet potatoes and mashed potatoes) and I worry all the time that he’s not getting the nutrition he needs.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But if we start babies out on solids in a way that obcures what they are actually eating, there’s no (rational) way we can expect them to eat that food in its natural form later down the road...
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
At the end of the day, you need to choose your priorities when it comes to cooking for your family. And of equal importance, you need to know when to bend to take care of yourself.🤕
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
For example, my priority is to avoid raising more picky eaters. I can’t go through that again—it was too hard, too sad and too deflating. And, on a day when everything seems to be an uphill battle, I will absolutely use a pouch as part of a snack (I buy yogurt pouches). They key to staying true to my priority though is to never *plan* on using a pouch or purée to sneak veggies in. That’s non-negotiable for me.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
That said, my priorities are mine. They are what matter to me and they don’t have to matter to you!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Every mom must have her own set of priorities and be true to them. Because there’s no one right way to feed your baby. Just different priorities.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⭐️ProTip: If you haven’t introduced tinned Sardines to your baby yet, go for it (see food no 51). They are hands down the single best convenience food a baby can eat. Filled with nutrients and can be served in less than a minute. Just don’t pop those puppies open on airplane!
