Papaya Pineapple Spinach and Banana


While researching new purees to feed my baby, I am always conscious of using organic fresh foods because I then know exactly what my baby will be eating. Not knowing where the baby food jars were manufactured or what is used to preserve the flavor to last longer makes me nervous. I know later in life, my daughter will see a friend at school eating junk food and I will just have to let go then, but for now, this is how I will confidently control what she eats. Hopefully, this attitude towards eating organic will instill good eating behaviors the older she gets. Being aware of what we put in our mouths is very hard already. There are so many dyes, preservatives, and pesticides used on many of average foods we eat. Therefore making my babies’ first foods was always something I knew I wanted to do and it brought me a lot of joy.

When I started introducing fruits and veggies, I noticed my kid was not picky. She would gnaw and try just about anything we set in front of her. Around the 7-8 month mark, we graduated to the papaya. This tropical fruit is sweet and blends with other foods nicely. While staying in the tropical theme, I found she loved her pineapple and bananas added to the papaya.

I love to blend as many fun ingredients together, and this recipe calls for spinach. I like this leafy green for babies as spinach is high in iron and great to puree for baby around the 6-8 month old mark. The creaminess from the banana also adds a sweet, subtle taste for this puree. If you’re hungry, it would be delish for you as well.

Always keep in mind, if you are feeding your baby a new food, make sure to just feed that one type of food for 3 days straight. If you do not see any signs of allergies or rashes around the mouth or hands after 3 days, then you know your baby is clear of an allergy to that food. But it’s always good to consult your doctor when starting firsts foods.
