Fall is the ultimate smorgasbord of butternut squash recipes! Cinnamon Roasted Butternut Squash is one of my all-time favorites, especially sprinkled with tart and tasty cranberries—talk about the holiday spirit! If you’re on the hunt for baby led weaning side dishes to tote along for Thanksgiving dinner, this is definitely one you’ll want to save. It’s sweet, delicious, healthy, and it’s easy for little ones to pick up with tiny hands. A true crowd pleaser, through and through.
Butternut squash recipes (or Butternut Pumpkin if you live in the Land Downunder) are ideal for baby led weaning in autumn. This amazing fruit is super high in fiber and vitamins C and A, so the babes get an extra immune boost and digestive aid. BONUS: If you store it properly—away from light—it can last for months! Stock up early in peak season, and you’ll have nutritious butternut squash side dishes to no end.
You should have no trouble at all convincing your tots to dig in to this butternut squash recipe. My kids adore the flavor of cranberries (which are bursting with antioxidants) and cinnamon, and they ask for this throughout the year, so I’m willing to bet your family will be pining for seconds.
