Kiwi Peach Puree

Kiwi Peach Puree 1

I’ll never forget being a little girl, probably 4 or 5 years old, and riding around in the grocery cart at Winn Dixie, the market near our house. My Mother pushed the cart along and picked up this brown fuzzy thing in the produce aisle. She held it like a jewel and said, “It’s a kiwi, they’re hard to get and they’re very exotic.” I didn’t even know what that meant at the time, but it sounded mysterious and special. Now, remember, this was in Kentucky in the 70’s, so we didn’t have the kind of accessibility to produce that we do now. So, from that point on I’ve always regarded kiwis with great esteem.

Kiwis have more vitamin C than any other fruit. It actually has almost twice the amount as an orange. To help increase the absorption of iron, which is important for brain development, feed your baby a vitamin C food, such as kiwis, at the same time you feed them egg yolks or cereals, which are high in iron.

Not only are kiwis delicious, they’re beautiful to look at. This puree has a gorgeous color and thick body from the addition of the peaches.
