Not the most obvious of finger foods but luckily the Husband is an adventurous type (especially when faced with an empty fridge) and so he steamed Babybear some spinach for a couple of minutes then wrung it out a bit and plonked it in a pile on her highchair tray.

Surprisingly, she found it incredibly easy to eat. Her technique largely relies upon jamming as much of the green stuff as possible into her mouth and then pulling out what cannot be immediately downed in one bite before pushing the rest back in. It’s grimly fascinating, not to mention hugely convenient as there are few vegetables her parents enjoy more than spinach done with a wee bit of garlic, lemon juice and olive oil…

    What age was Babybear when you offered her spinach?

    I find with lettuce, cabbage and spinach she enjoys it but i think as its so leafy she cant control it very well in her mouth and ends up gagging loads! Think its a bit sticky maybe so gets stuck on roof of mouth or something? X

      I’m so glad you posted this response — I just gave my baby spinach last night and she gagged like crazy and freaked me out that she was choking. I’m glad mine isn’t the only one. I was afraid my judgment had been bad.
