Before my family immigrated to California from Iran in the 80’s, I had already lived on two continents, across 6 cities.

Happy National Herbs and Spices Day! At Baby Ventures, we’re big fans of inspiring little ones to explore the world around them, and that includes diverse tastes and flavors from their first solid foods! Herbs and spices are the perfect addition to baby purees and toddler meals – not only do they add nutrition and flavor, but they also pave the way for healthy and adventurous eaters later on.
Natural flavors have long been used in cuisines worldwide. Cumin, dill weed, cardamom, turmeric, cinnamon, and saffron – to name a (very) few – have a host of health benefits, and delight taste buds young and old in dishes ranging from curries to savory meats and stews. In fact, much of the distinct tastes we love in Asian, Latin, Mediterranean, and Middle Eastern foods stem from the unique combinations of herbs and spices found in each of these regions’ delectable culinary concoctions. These days crafting all-natural and flavorful baby food is on the rise, thanks to resources like the Baby and Toddler Cookbook, the Little Foodie Club, and WellnessMama.com.
