These baked seasoned tofu nuggets with sautéed baby bok choy will help expand your toddler’s palate. 

Chicken nuggets and fries are always fun, but tofu nuggets with a hearty helping of baby bok choy are a great healthy alternative. Tofu is packed with protein and all nine essential amino acids. It’s also the perfect finger food for babies without teeth or who are transitioning to solid foods.

2. Drizzle the tofu cubes with olive oil. 

3. Toss and fully coat the cubes with the arrowroot powder.  

4. Bake at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 25 to 30 minutes. 

5. While the tofu is baking, chop baby bok choy. 

6. Add olive oil, garlic, ginger and bok choy to a sauté pan. Salt to taste.

7. Pour the water into pan while the bok choy is cooking and mix it in. 

8. Cover the bok choy with a lid and cook for five minutes or until soft.
