Why I Love This Recipe

This is a great meal for babies who can handle a bit of texture, but it is a great staple for toddlers, too! It's also a nice base for adding spices to your little one's diet. Try it with cinnamon, cayenne, or curry powder!

Ingredients You'll Need

1 cup chicken stock (homemade if you have it!)
1/2 cup pastina or other tiny pasta
1/4 cup pureed pumpkin
parmesan cheese


Bring chicken stock to a boil.

Add pastina and cook until soft, about 5-6 minutes.

Remove from the heat and stir in pumpkin.

Grate parmesan over the top and serve. Refrigerate extras and serve in a day or two.
