Banana Pasta Breakfast

I learnt the following meal from the TV, few months ago when Chloe just started on solid. It's supposed to be a healthy snack for toddlers. Vegetable pasta filled with mashed banana; interesting shapes and colours to encourage chewing (and self-feeding too).

So I tried to make it this morning for Chloe's breakfast. She is in the phase of rejecting food recently. The baby cereal will be kept aside until further notice. Hopefully she'll find cereal tasty again after some time :D

Back to the topic, this is the mashed banana...

The cooked vegetable pasta. Shell-shaped to fill in the mashed banana...

The irony in me arised eventually. I was afraid she wasn't ready to chew the food after all. So, mash-mash-mash, I mashed the pasta along with the banana again before feeding her... Somehow tried to go easy with the spoon to leave bigger pieces for her...

Gone was the interesting shapes and colours of the meal... :(

Lucky for me, Chloe was very satisfied to have this breakfast alternative! Phew~~~

"Mama, I want more!!"
