Cook’s Nook – Chicken and Vegetables Meatballs

Easy for little hands to pick up and nibble on and jam packed with wonderfully nutritious vegetable, meatballs make the perfect baby led weaning food, especially for blw beginners!
So when Inigo was born I equipped myself on how will I prevent picky eater. Then I came accross Baby Led Weaning. At first,I was adamant with choking and gagging but as what other BLW mother’s would say “how will you know if you will not try”. 

So again what is BLW means and how it helped me as a mom to achieved a non picky eater toddler this time.

“Baby led weaning quite simply is self feeding. It means allowing your child to feed themselves from the very beginning of their experiences with food. At meal times, your child eats at the same time as the rest of the family and is offered the same food. Baby led weaning is all about exploring, experiencing and enjoying nutritious and delicious family meals from the very first taste of solids.”

And because Inigo loves vegetable and pasta I combined two of his favorite food. 

To create your own batch of easy peasy vege packed chicken and vegetable meatballs  simply.. 

 Begin by placing the grated carrot, zucchini, sweet potato, potato, chicken breast, flour and eggs into a large mixing bowl.  Stir until fully combined.. 

 

Take heaped tablespoon of the mixture and place into shallow bowl with flour. Next, dipped it in egg and lastly into the bowl with parmesan cheese and panko breadcrumbs.

Spray a non stick mini muffin tin tray with cooking spray oil.   

 Bake for 10-15 minutes or until golden, flip each vegetable balls and bake for another 2-3 minutes.
  

I served these vegetables alongside a very simple tomato pasta and in no time Inigo gobbled them up. Even Kuya Angelo tried it!
