Adding to the growing collection of toddler food recipes or what we call “Little People Food”, here is a Black Bean Banana Mini Pita Quesadillas for you to try to make for your lil guy or gal. Lil V used to eat this Quinoa Black Bean Banana mix from Happy Baby Organic foods and loved it. It was a great way to get some protein in him in the morning and also to give him something else other than oatmeal. This was when he was 7-8 months old.


I then started making the same mix at home for some time after that and continued to do so, till lil V was eating mushy food. Once he stopped eating those and started eating tables foods, I had to come up with other ideas to give him the same combo food. I came across these whole wheat mini pitas in Whole Foods and bought a bunch thinking I’ll make some quesadillas for lil V’s lunch. Then I thought I’ll add some black beans to the quesadillas and maybe some onions, peppers etc. That is when I remembered the black bean banana combo I used to give him. So, I tried that out, black beans, banana and cheese in mini pitas to make mini quesadillas.


I won’t lie and say that he absolutely loved it. He did eat most of it though, but I am sure he would have loved it if I just gave him the cheese! They all go through those phases, don’t they?!
