I am in love! After a trip to the farmer’s market, I filled up on the most beautifully red and rip hand picked strawberries and tried to figure out how I could incorporate them into my dinner plans without making a dessert. With the other seasonal produce I put together a light and refreshing quinoa salad that not only I love but my kids adored as well. The big recipe will keep in the fridge for the following day’s lunches.

I try to approach every fruit that we cover in our blogs without bias or favouritism. Each fruit has its own range of health benefits to offer and something to celebrate. That said, I am only human and despite my best efforts…I have a favourite. And so I must embrace my failure to be impartial and toot the blueberry horn. Not only do they have a flavour that perfectly balances sweet, tart, and tangy, but blueberries are also nutritional stars.

Vibrant, sweet, and juicy…it’s no surprise that the strawberry is the most popular berry in the world. I sometimes consider them to be the bacon of the fruit world (hear me out on this!). Just as bacon compliments almost any other meat, strawberries pair will with most other fruits and…well just about anything (Please note that the strawberry-bacon relationship ends there)! Strawberries are the perfect addition to salads, smoothies, cakes, desserts and sauces! When pureed for babies, it makes a vibrant, appetizing snack!

Fennel has to be one of my favorite veggies! Anise undertones and crunchy texture- I eat it raw like carrot! However, cooked and combined with apples it makes a delicious puree to be used as a side dish to roast chicken or pork or simply eaten on its own. Perfect for baby food or a kids snack.
Serves 4 (12 baby servings) prep time 5 minutes, cook time 8 minutes
- 1 fennel bulb (white part only), trimmed and chopped
- 2 apples, cored, peeled and chopped

Fennel is the poster child for making use of all of your resources. Virtually every part of this veggie can be consumed! From bulb to stalk, leaves to seeds, even the oil can be extracted and used! With a crisp crunch akin to celery and a surprising flavour reminiscent of liquorice, fennel is a quirky vegetable that can elevate a simple dish to genuine gourmet.

There is nothing worse than nursing your infant through a cold. Allergies are a whole other ball game. Allergies may be related to food, medication, chemical irritants, insects, animal dander, dust mites, mold or pollen. Symptoms may include itchy, watery eyes, a runny nose or sneezing and may be mild to moderate in intensity. More severe reactions may include hives or anaphylaxis.
