Thanks, Fisher's Mom. I'm just looking to boost overall nutrition and give her some treats w/o any more refined sugar than necessary. Sof's a good eater overall, just not too adventursome lately (typical for an almost 2-yr-old, I think). She loves fruit so that's no problem, but I would like to make sure she gets some more protein and iron.

How much tofu do you throw into the blender? She's a real grazer so I can't imagine getting through an entire block before it goes bad. Could I slice it, freeze it and pull out slices as needed?

I'm sure tofu would keep for a week in the fridge. I honestly don't know about freezing it - I never have. I use it a lot as an add in because a few of my kids are not big eaters and I worry about their nutrition, too. You can add cubes of it to almost any soup. It really has no taste but readily takes on the flavor of whatever you put it in. Works great in chicken noodle soup or chicken and rice. Add it at the end if the soup is home made. You can crumble it into lasagne or even pasta dishes. If she likes jello, you may be surprised to find she likes chunks of tofu in her food. Anyway, it's pretty inexpensive for the quality of protein so give it a shot and see if she likes it (or at least doesn't notice you added it!) Iron is tougher. I try to use cast iron cookware as much possible and push the Spiderman chewables and hope for the best!
