People forget that tofu is fantastic toddler food. It’s white, bland, nutritious, and can “hide” in all sorts of other foods. Here’s Kristen’s suggestion:
Trying to get your baby to eat tofu? Stick it in miso soup! You can buy miso in bulk at most Asian and/or health stores, or just buy the quick instant stuff and add hot water. But either way, my not-so-eating tofu son LOVES it now. Just cut it into small tiny cubes, throw it into the soup, and then feed it to him that way. Miso has some great health benefits too.
I toss cubed extra-firm tofu with some cornstarch, season with salt and pepper, then fry in olive oil — the kids love it. I’ve also blended silken tofu (the stuff in the shelf-stable boxes) into smoothies, puddings and my annual pumpkin pie.
