Beets are messy to make and smell like dirt but my son loves them! They are nutritious with vitamin A, calcium, potassium, and fiber. They also add a nice pop of color to baby’s diet, so bring on the beets!

*Fyi…Beets may make baby’s poop reddish colored, this scared me at first but I figured it’s the same as spinach turning it crazy green #momlife.
I used a pack of 4 beets that cost $1.69. It made 9 baby food pods. That’s $0.19 a food pod. Not bad for a healthy nutritious meal! I like to serve beets with green beans, peas, butternut squash, sweet potato or brussel sprouts. Give it a try, let me know what your little thinks!
