Welcome to littleveg!

I am passionate about helping babies and young children love real food. The recipes posted are ones I cook weekly for myself and other families. They are simple, can be memorized easily and are adaptable to ingredients you might already have on hand.

Teresa has inspired me to be intentional about the ingredients I use when cooking for my family. I also really appreciate the simplicity of her recipes – you won’t have to track down fifteen ingredients or spend hours in the kitchen, and she recommends a variety of substitutions so that you can make a great meal with what you’ve got on hand. I feel so fortunate for the positive impact Teresa has had on our family’s diet.
