Puree Monday - Green Goat Cheese
This is a beautiful and creamy puree perfect for little your little bebe’s pallet. It’s best not to introduce until you have already introduced dairy (such as cheese or yogurt) and your bebe has no issues with it. Goat cheese is a wonderful cheese for babies because as goats are much smaller animals than cows so are the proteins found in their milk, making them easier to digest.
