Dirt & Worms for Dinner

John Ryman enjoying some dirt & worms!  (aka spaghetti noodles and black beans)

This boy sure loves eating his big boy food!  I've found that if I wait to season our food until after it's cooked, then I can set aside a little of our dinner for John Ryman.  It encourages us to eat healthy and joins JR in on the family dinner.  Black beans are perfect- just give each one a little smoosh and they are great for his two teeth.  Peaches & bananas are easy for him to bite into and he is even getting used to the texture of quinoa.  Zucchini and squash steam quickly and make for a simple side we all enjoy.


  1. That is a great idea!

    We started family dinners when Charlotte was 9 months old and she loves it. This morning she had her first Pancakes and it was so fun watching her enjoy new food together with her daddy :-)


  2. Love all of this healthy food!!! What a sweet boy he is!!!! And I am in love with his two teeth!!!!
