Tofu For Babies – Tofu Vegetable Strip

My baby is 10 months old. Except for the soup, he never uses a spoon to eat food. He always grabs the food directly by hand. So I chose to make this nutritious and healthy dish for him that encourage him to eat with his hands within 1 year of age. This will exercise the flexibility of the baby’s hand and prepare for the next skilled meal. And I must pay attention to wash his hands to prevent eating bacteria.
