Actually i am a vege and fruit lover since i was a kid. My set meals wouldn't be complete if vege's not one of the course (Tapi kalau abroad sebulan, makan salad je tiap2 hari, x lalu jugak :p).
My most fav is to have steamed or stir fried. I boleh je had a lunch that i'd only order 'steamed kailan with oyster sauce'. Pelik je org kiri kanan tgk i makan. Hehe. And then Fruitssss!!! I ensure that i always have them in my fridge. Any kind of fruits. The latest, i'm crazy with strawberries. Can't wait to climb Tanah Tinggi next weekend!! :)
The other day, after i fetched Oman from Mak Yah's house, we went to Tesco Extra that located just a few miles from my house to shop some groceries. Since it'd be only two of us having dinner together that night (Dadda ade job), so i just tapaued chicken rice timun lebih for me, and rushed back home to cook mushroom soup for Oman.
At home, while having dinner, i noticed that Oman kept staring at me crunching on the cucumber slice. "nak" "nak".. alahai.. i was afraid to offered him tapi kesian. Yela dia kan x cukup gigi lagi nak kunyah. Takut chocking pulak. Huhu. He insisted, siap berjujuran airmata lagi, so i chopped2 the cucumber into very small pieces tapi dia xmo. He wanted to have it exactly like mcm kita org tua-tua ni tawww.. ayoyo eksen sungguh! xperla, i let him tried... hambik!! he finished them all pieces. Hehehehe.
Since then, raw cucumber becomes his fav munch-munch. I'm ok with it since Oman pun relax je. Xde pulak dia gassy-gassy. Some info on cucumber for babies can be read here.
Let me share with you those veges and fruits that Oman most love to have them to date.
Cucumbers are good sources of Vitamin C and A. Untuk babies and tood buang kulit tau! Kalau untuk adults xpe banyak fiber.
Beans (green) is a calcium booster. The many nutrients in green beans can help you prevent a number of different conditions, including Alzheimer's, atherosclerosis, diabetic heart disease, colon cancer, asthma, arthritis, acne, ear infections, and maybe even colds and flu’s. To get some recipes for your kids, click here. I discovered he first to like it masa makan dekat nearby restaurant. Dia hisap the beans sampai lembik. Pastu baru kunyah. hehe.
It's a great food to absorb iron selain it's rich with vitamin C. Tomatoes are actually fruits and they contain a high level of acidity that MAY prove harsh on a tiny tummy. Oooo.. oooo.. not giving it raw to your kids may reduce the acidity and be more gentle on a tiny tummy. Check here. This is his latest. I was preparing the ingredients to cook the primavera sause for dinner sambil tu i dok makan the tomato slices. (Kalau the grape tomatoes lagilah i crazy, satu pack tu i boleh ratah sorang2.. hehe) My loyal little helper kat dapur tu pun nak cuba jugak. Hihi. Terus he likes it and he can eat 2 whole tomatoes a day. So far his tummy is just fine. Wee!!
I think he loves the sweetness of the juice. Tapi kot nasib dapat yang masam tu, kerot-kerot muka. hahahah
Vitamins: A, C, Folate
Minerals: Potassium, Magnesium, Calcium.

Ni Paling selalu ada dalam our fridge. He likes it when i bit little pieces for him.
Selalu lumba-lumba dengan dadda sapa dapat dulu from me. :)
Grapes contain flavonoids that may be responsible for heart health and protecting against "bad" cholesterol. They are my no. 1 favorite fruits. Happened to be his too!!! I loike! :) For kids recipes, click here.
One of the most important nutritional components of Bananas is that they contain potassium and fiber. Bananas are also high in Vitamin B6, Vitamin C and Vitamin B2. Oman kalau yg raw dia kureng sikit. Tapi kalau i buat cekodok, laju je dia. Boleh? hehe. For kids recipes, click here.
Moga-moga, his likey towards veges and fruits ni berkekalanlah sampai dia dah besar panjang nanti. Aamin. :)His another favorite.. makan straw. Ish! :) - Pic by Ayong

Hmmm.. wondering. Do you know if dried fruits good for babies? Cause Oman sangat suka seedless raisins such by Ligo and Sunflower tu. Xpe ke ek?- Pic by OP
Oh by the way, today is the birthday of my pretty SIL, Irma. Happy Birthday darling!!!!! Muah..Muahs!! Moga jadi isteri mithali mcm K.Nuurill. Ahaks!!! hahahaha
