Carter has gotten to the stage where she only wants to eat things that are hand held or in a pouch so lately we've been trying to get a little more creative with her food. The poor girl doesn't have any teeth yet but she can get the job done with her gums with no problem. We've found that she likes meat, a lot, so we decided to try out meatballs from Baby Foode and they were a hit!

1 lb ground chicken or turkey
1/4 cup applesauce or apple puree
1/2 cup shredded carrot
1/2 cup chopped spinach
1/4 cup chopped green onion
1 egg
1 cup breadcrumbs
salt and pepper

Pre heat the oven to 450. Mix everything in a bowl by hand. Make 1" balls out of the mixture. Put balls on a greased pan + pop into the oven for about 10 minutes. Once they were done they cooled off pretty quickly and Carter was able to taste test. She approved!

This recipe made about twenty five meatballs so I put some in the freezer for a later use. Yum!
