If you ever wondered what a chef's kid eats. I don't know if I ever mentioned this in the past, but I have a baby daughter. She's 14 months now and pretty much outgrew the bottled foods with the exception to the pastas and the fruits. So, I've been experimenting a lot at home on my days off with cooking her different and healthy things to eat. Here's what she had today for lunch:

Asian Ragout of Zucchini, Mushrooms, and Sweet Onions with Homemade Tofu

The tofu I learned from my grandma and the ragout was simply prepared with soy sauce, rice vinegar, mirin, and ginger and braised until tender.

I dont recall you mentioning your baby daugther, but she is very fortunate to have a chef dad who prepares such wonderful meals for her. I dont like tofu because of the texture, but I know it takes on the flavors of most anything it is paired with.

Tofu is also a great source of protein, iron, and calcium while being virtually free from any saturated or trans fats unless you add it yourself. I swear she eats better than we do. I make her stuff like that and I'm eating taquitos or pizza.

Get to practice some of my Italian cooking. No fusion here:

Tonno e Zucchini all'Agrodolce

Tuna, Zucchini, and Potato sauteed and braised in a sweet and sour San Marzano tomato sauce.

i think tofu's great for her. you may want to offer diced baked squashes, omlettes, etc. and congrats to you, for being a Dad!

We're trying to introduce her to different but healthy flavors and foods. I try to cook her foods with as little oil and fats as possible with a focus on vegetables and protein.

If anyone else has pics or info of what they feed their kids please feel free to post them in here.
