Tasty Homemade Baby Food - 3 Recipes
Homemade baby food is always the best! It’s basically the only way to be sure what’s inside. And it also is a great idea not to pay a fortune for best quality baby puree. Here are some of my favorite recipes for different ages you should try!
That’s the easy one. Very fast to prepare, rich in potassium and fiber and all kids love bananas! Those are gentle on the stomach, although try not to give too much at first.
Peel a small, well-ripened banana and mash it with a fork or potato masher. And… that’s it! You first homemade baby food is ready. You can add some milk if you want to. Serve as first breakfast food with breast milk or formula.
Beets and blueberry mash
I love this combination because of the fantastic color! But of course, also the nutrition combination is valuable: antioxidants, vitamins, and fiber.
Take two beets, and a half cup of blueberries (fresh or frozen - whatever you can get).
Peel and chop the beets into small cubes. Put those and fruits in the small pan, cover with a little bit of water and cook for 10-15 minutes on medium heat. Beets should be tender.
Then use the blender or food processor to get the puree consistency.
This also goes at breakfast time.
Cherry and Greek yogurt baby food purée
It’s getting harder! The older your baby is, the more type of food you can use. It may take a little more time to cook homemade baby food, but you can make few servings at once and keep in a fridge for 3-4 days.
The new thing here is the yogurt base!
You need one cup of cherries, and 1 or 2 cups (depending on density) of greek yogurt - preferably full fat or goat and few mint leaves.
Heat cherries for 10 minutes on a small pan. Then place in a food processor with mint leaves but without a yogurt. Put puree in a bowl and yogurt on the top. You should use a transparent dish for more fun when you stir the layers!
