Real Baby Food

It’s hard to believe we are at this stage. I remember when all he drank was milk. Now he’s eyeing my food and has an appetite.

We started solids at 6 months. To our surprise he didn’t want to have anything to do with it. He cried every time the spoon came near him.

It wasn’t until maybe a month ago at 9 months he’s desire to eat solids increased.

When we first attempted solids we introduced 1 food at a time. Then we slowly added more fresh food to his menu.

I have been asked what do we feed him. Here are a few of my purées recipes

In a small sauce pan add:
1 cup of cubed mangos
1 cup chopped carrots
Add a little water depending on consistency preference.

Steam on medium to soften.

Then transfer to a blender. If you have a baby bullet that’s good but a regular blender would work just fine. You can also use a crockpot for bigger batches.

Blend it to purée and serve.

You can repeat these same steps for the following blends:

1 half of a sliced pear
1 sliced kiwi

1 cup of spinach
1/2 cup chopped celery

1 cup cubed mangos
1 cup sliced strawberries

1 cup chopped Green beans
1/2 cup Blueberries

1/2 cup lentils
1/2 cup chopped celery

Leftovers
If I have any leftovers I store in containers in the fridge for 2-3 days.

You could freeze them too in ice cube trays. I haven’t done this because I prefer the fresh but it saves time during the week to just thaw it out and serve.

Walllahhh! Now you can go try these blends with your little one!

Please Note: These recipes were made by me and are based on my own experiences.
