Introducing different flavors and textures to your baby is so important, and I found this combination of fennel and zucchini was one of my daughter's favorites. The fennel is naturally sweet and full of flavor and cooking in olive oil first not only deepens flavor, but the added fat helps baby absorb all of the nutrients from the vegetables!
