Pumpkin and Cranberry

This is a really good combo.  For Thanksgiving I even decided to make a pumpkin pie with whole cranberries in it and it was a hit and has already been requested for Christmas.  Once again, this is a great opportunity to let the Baby have a similar (more healthy version) of your holiday treats.

What you need:
 - Basic Pumpkin Puree 
 - Basic Cranberry Puree, as an alternative use the Cranberry Sauce with apples

What to do:
 - Combine (at a two to one ratio) the pumpkin puree and the Cranberry puree.
 - Mix to combine, or blend if necessary to get the desired consistency.

 **Mommy Tip**
If you are using canned pumpkin for your holiday dishes, ensure that the only ingredient if pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix, but plain canned pumpkin).  As long as nothing else is added your baby should be fine with the canned pumpkin.
**Mommy Tip**

Do you have an toddler or older child who doesn't like to eat their veggies, or healthy foods in general?  Try this recipe for them (or swap out the pumpkin for sweet potato or squash).
