Cooking for Kam: Solving for Slimy Finger Food

Wheat Germ is my favorite secret mommy ingredient. It is packed full of nutrients and easy to hide in most food (like the veggie nuggets I’ll share later in the week). Another use I have found for wheat germ is that it can be used to make slimy food a little less slimy…and a lot easier for little fingers to grab.

Kamran loves butternut squash and it was no problem to feed to him as a purée. When we switched to finger food he got really frustrated chasing it around his tray. So I would cook, cube then coat in wheat germ–problem solved. I typically put the food into a bowl, sprinkle wheat germ on and shake it around until well coated. No cooking required.

Last night Kamran had avocado as part of his meal. Yet another slimy finger food made less slimy thanks to wheat germ.
