Broccoli Water

Doesn’t the title of this post sound so yummy?  Well I try not to laugh, because my toddler LOVES his broccoli water!  When you boil vegetables, lots of the vitamins end up  in the cooking water because they are water soluble.  So, save that water!  You can strain it and put it in a cup for baby to drink right away (my baby loves warm drinks!),  or refrigerate it to add it to soups or smoothies later.  It can also be used to “thin” other vegetables that you puree.  And remember to always serve your baby’s veggies with a little fat (butter or olive oil) so he can absorb the fat soluble vitamins!
