Bite-sized Cheesy Broccoli Quinoa Bites perfect for babies, toddlers and kids that are healthy, packed with protein and easily made with only 5 simple ingredients!
Ever since my daughter started eating solid foods, it has been such a fun adventure watching her learn all the new tastes, textures and varieties of fruits and veggies I have introduced to her. I will admit, I was totally that momma that struggled with baby led weaning as I was SO afraid of her choking, so I tried to get creative with the food I would make her. These cheesy broccoli quinoa bites are PERFECT for her because not only does she gobble them right up, but they’re the perfect size for her tiny hands and the quinoa crumbles really easily in her mouth so I’m not afraid of her choking.
These bite-sized savory treats are super easy to make too and only require 5 simple ingredients! Packed full of protein and veggies, you can feel good about sharing these with your kids and I bet they’ll have a blast making them with you!

- Eggs – These are important to bind everything together. I like that these bites crumble easily for my infant, but feel free to add an additional egg if you’d like them held together more.
- Broccoli – I prefer…
