Turkey Day Recipes For Your Tot
November 25, 2013 • Posted by Ankita Satija
The end of November is here, which can only mean one thing: Thanksgiving is approaching! Many of us associate the holiday with massive food comas due to lethal amounts of mashed potatoes and stuffing. But what about your little one?

Since a turkey leg is hardly suitable for an infant’s palate, you are probably better off sticking to purees for a Stage 1-2 eater. But that doesn’t mean your baby is resigned to a bland Thanksgiving dinner. Here are some purees that ensure your babe will be part of the fun, with a little inspiration from

1) Butternut Squash. Blend this for baby and watch little eyes light up.

2) Applesauce. A favorite for adults and children alike, applesauce is a perpetual crowd pleaser. It goes well with everything – a delicious side dish for grown-ups gorging on turkey, as well as the perfect puree for your tiny tot.

3) Turkey and Cranberry. Yep, turkey is totally mashable! Place in a blender with water and add cranberries until it matches the consistency of a puree.

And a Cuisinart original recipe your baby is bound to love on Turkey Day…

4) Sweet Potato Pancakes
