Baby’s First Veggie Puree

So your little one is about 6 months old and is looking to try some puree! What an exciting time when you can start to introduce new flavours and foods. But remember to keep it simple at first and introduce new things slowly. Always supplementing with breast milk or formula for the majority of meal times at this stage.

Here is a quick and easy puree that you can start your little one off with. I’m using carrots but you can do it with potato, sweet potato or turnips.

Ingredients
4 medium carrots

Wash and peel carrots, then cut them into even sized slices. Steam them by placing them in a colander and set it over boiling water. Cook them until very very tender – about 15 – 20 minutes. Puree until smooth, add a little of the cooking water to get the best consistency. Serve luke warm.
