As I was prepping dinner I realized that this was also a perfect opportunity to show an example of baby led weaning for us!
Baby led weaning is more or less feeding your baby little bits of the same food you’re eating- obviously this should be done judicially based on their age and tooth count. For more info, I love @feedinglittles and @kids.eat.in.color for more feeding tips!
But for the food:
In the crock pot I put a thawed pork loin. I topped it with chopped garlic, salt, onion powder, the Italian seasoning blend from Target, and a can of tomato sauce. I cooked it on low about 6 hours. Then, I sliced and served it with ravioli and mini mozzarella balls. They’re super fun, Athena loves them, and they’re a great lunch alternative as she doesn’t usually eat a whole string cheese.
For Eleanor (almost 1year) I cut up pork, a mozzarella ball, and ravioli in super tiny pieces. She is a great eater and happily eats along with us most meals.
Athena’s bowl contains the same, but bigger pork chunks, whole ravioli, and a few extra mozzarella balls.
As for my adult plate a few slices of pork, ravioli, mozzarella balls, and my fav Italian bread crumbs for some extra crunch.
Not only is this a very easy meal that makes enough for a small army, but it’s very easily adaptable for every member of the family without having to make completely different meals for everyone.
