Baby Toddler Food (9-12 Months) April 2012 Menu

Want access to recipe cards, grocery lists, step-by-step cooking day instructions and labels complete with freezing directions and customizable serving sizes? Want to swap out recipes in this menu? Already a member? Sign in!

Although this menu is labeled as 9-12 month baby food, many of these recipes are tasty enough to serve to the whole family.  The Inside Out Apple Crisp (pictured above) was delicious served warm with ice cream for a new dessert option.  Or, if you are preparing for a baby, just mash or puree to the consistency you need for your little one.  As a busy mom myself its great to find recipes that can be easily adapted to the various members of my family.  The roasted root vegetables is another great example.  Leave the veggies in chunks for the family, then puree or mash some for baby.  I hope you enjoy exploring new tastes and textures with your little ones!

The Baby & Toddler Food menu is designed for you to make life feeding your baby/toddler homemade food a little easier. We are not pediatricians, please seek counsel from them on timing, allergies and food sensitivities. These menus are simply designed for ease of parents and not necessarily adhere to dietary guidelines. If you are new and not sure how to get started we have a wonderful series starting with 5 easy steps to get you on your way to once a month cooking. Good luck!

The links below are just so you can see which recipes are included in this month's menu. WE DO THE WORK FOR YOU! To see freezer instructions and adapt recipes to your family size see the RECIPE CARDS below.

Test Cooks

Each month we have some wonderful volunteers who “test” out the menu prior to publication. They do an amazing job of helping to eliminate confusion and mistakes. They may not catch everything but they sure do catch A LOT! If you are interested in test cook, feel free to volunteer. Here is a little bit about this month’s test cooks:

  • Paula Graff - I am a full time working mom of two, looking to make mealtime easier. I am fortunate enough to have an amazing mother-in-law that taught all her children to be great cooks. So I have been spoiled by my husband’s cooking. As we started a family I felt the urge to learn to cook. I am jumping in full speed ahead, it may not always work out, but that’s what life it all about – growth!
  • Katie Rodriguez – I am a youth pastor’s wife and stay at home mom to an amazing 11 month old.

Get Started

Are you new to Once A Month Mom or once a month cooking (oamc) in general? If so, you might want to spend a few minutes (or hours) on the Get Started Series. If you are in a real hurry to catch on we have written some simple steps for getting started. Welcome!

If this time frame doesn’t match up with your child, please check out our other baby and toddler food menus.

    Just curious as to why the recipes above do not match up with the printouts. I have made 9 out of 15 recipes so far and just realized they are not what I originally thought I was making. LOL. Everything is tasting great, but I really do wish all the printouts matched the above list. This is soooo much work and I thank you for putting everything together.

      Nicole –
      The links to the recipes on the main menu post are to the original recipe links. When you download the recipe cards, that is where you will get the OAMM freezing directions. Does that make sense?
