Food Diary Day 4 – Pumpkin Purée

Food Diary Day 4 – Pumpkin Purée

It’s the first day of a new taste. I wanted to serve some spinach to 小小宝贝 to “up” his iron intake, only to find that there’s no spinach in the refrigerator. It must have been cooked, eaten and fermenting somewhere in the sewers.

Since my Dad specially bought organic Japanese pumpkin for his precious, I might as well use that. One small little slice cost more than $2!!

I chopped it up into small chunks and steamed them for 15 minutes. I added some water and blended the chunks into smooth orange purée. I tried some myself – yummy and sweet.


I started off with 2 teaspoons of pumpkin purée, in case he didn’t take to the taste. He threw a tantrum after he finished it…. He went on to have 6 teaspoons in all…

I froze 3 more portions in baby cubes so that he could have them for the next few days.


宝贝 insisted that it’s her favourite (which was really strange… I made chicken chop in pumpkin sauce for her, she declared that she hated pumpkin but still finished it to the last bit.) so she ate up the rest….


A good sleep after his pumpkin lunch.

Breakfast – 3 teaspoons of brown rice cereal
Lunch – 6 teaspoons of pumpkin purée =.=”
Dinner – 3 teaspoons of brown rice cereal

Milk feeds as usual… He sure can eat…
