Green Eggs with Cherry Tomatoes and Cheddar Cheese

I've been playing around with different types of scrambles for my little one, and came up with this one this morning. I've been trying to think of a way to ensure that my little one gets the most bang for his buck out of each bite, considering half of it always ends up on the floor. So, I decided to puree some veggies and mix them right in with the egg batter and then scramble, hence "green" eggs. After investigating the eggs for a minute, my little guy dug right in! This recipe is for babies 8+ months.

Here's what you'll need:
1 oz cooked butternut squash puree (steam then puree)
1 oz cooked broccoli puree (steam then puree, or saute with olive oil then puree)
1/2 oz or 1 small spoonful of mashed avocado
1 egg
pinch of parsley
2 cherry tomatoes quartered
1/4 cup bite size pieces of cheddar cheese

In a small bowl, mix butternut squash puree, broccoli puree, mashed avocado. Add beaten egg to puree mixture and stir until blended. Heat a small skillet over med heat, add a tiny bit of olive oil if you like. Pour egg and veggie mixture to the skillet add a pinch of parsley and cook. When eggs are finished put on a plate to cool for a minute. Cut up tomatoes and cheddar cheese and add them to cooled eggs. Serve right on high chair tray and enjoy!
