Eggs are reliable sources of protein, selenium, vitamin D, and a lot more that are nutritious and valuable for your baby’s health, while pasta on the other hand is a reliable source of carbohydrates, folic acid, etc. I love eggs because they are unbelievably cheap, easy to find, easy to prepare, and incredibly good for your baby’s health. An egg could be served as a stage one, two, or even three food, and first timers' puree, finger food, and weaning. Adding pasta to it could make it more appealing, satisfying, and healthier.

WHY PASTA AND EGG? 

Some people usually look down on pasta because they feel that it is a processed food and has nothing to offer except calories. The good news is that you can combine it with other healthy ingredients to make it a balanced diet as well as derive benefits from the fortified added advantage of it. Do not forget that pasta is rich in carbohydrates, which is an energy-giving food. Do not deprive your child of this food because children need a lot of energy daily to enable them to explore, discover, learn, and reach their milestones. Thus, giving your child this kind of recipe is already empowering him/her to cover all milestones at his/her age. 

Pasta could also be given as finger food to encourage good eye and hand coordination in your baby, which will also teach your child how to pick food and feed him/herself by him/herself. There are several other ways of preparing pasta, which I believe you might have been preparing uniquely, especially if you have a preschool toddler. Get me right, I am not trying to fault your cooking expertise but to introduce you to another delicious method, especially if your baby does not like veggies. Seriously, this method is highly recommended because most babies love the outcome of it. It encompasses vegetables and other nutritious ingredients that are beneficial to your baby’s health.  

As mentioned earlier, this recipe could be served as finger food to babies from eight months upward; and it could also be mashed and given to babies around eight months that have started learning how to chew. Besides, pureeing is also good for seven months upward. It could also be served to toddlers for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. I would suggest you add a bit more for yourself when making this recipe because you are going to love it and might even end up eating off your baby’s portion.
