When to Introduce: 12 months (always check with your pediatrician)
Stars: Quinoa is packed with fiber, calcium, iron and folate. Squash is also high in folate but its also packed full of Vitamin A and Calcium. Tomatoes are high in Vitamin A & C and Carrots are high in beta carotene.
1 summer squash
1/4 cup quinoa

Rinse Quinoa (or soak for a few minutes) Add 1 cup water to a pot, add the quinoa and bring to a boil and simmer until quinoa has begun to unravel itself.
