When my daughter was a baby and was starting to eat solid foods, she would mostly only eat fruit and other low-calorie foods. Not wanting to give her dairy, eggs, or meat, I was looking for a nutritious food with significant calories, fat, and protein that would be soft enough for a little one without all her teeth, and so yummy that she’d eat it without fail (because just beans were hit and miss).
I decided to try tofu for the first time. Even though I’d been mostly vegetarian for nearly a decade, I had always been too intimidated (and kind of grossed out!) to try making. There were a lot of barriers. My husband believed tofu messes up our hormones and we’ve talked and researched for hours about whether to eat it and feed it to our children. I also had no idea how to prepare it.
I had to do lots of research my first time trying tofu. Now, you don’t have to!
