Cheese and Chive Stuffed Baby Potato Skins Baby Led Feeding

There is actually nothing more tasty in my opinion than a potato (can you tell I’m Irish?) and it is a perfect food to first give your little one. A baby potato makes a great finger food and is easy for them to hold. When filled with vegetables, it becomes a perfect little meal. I have served these for both dinner with some diced chicken, spiced baked beans or as a tea-time snack just as they are.

These little babes are yummy even with the vegan and dairy free substitutions. Enjoy!
