Carrot Peas Pear Puree

Carrots, peas, and pear are a perfect combo for your baby’s first foods. I would start trying these ingredients (one at a time) around the 4-6 month mark. The more you feed that one particular ingredient to your baby, the more you can mix and pair into a fun medley. Always remember that when feeding […]

Strawberry Apple Carrot Purée

When I am preparing purées, I like to combine both fruit and vegetables so that we get all of the recommended servings in for the day. I have been making purées this way ever since we tested everything individually on my daughter to make sure she didn’t have any food allergies. In this mixed purée, […]

Green Bean, Carrot and Rice Purée

As my daughter is getting older, it seems her pickiness about vegetables is getting worse. The only way she will eat them is hidden in a purée, like this green bean, carrot and rice one. I first steam the carrots and green beans and cook a small pot of rice. Once cooked, I blend them […]

Papaya Puree

At my house, we love tropical baby foods. I’m always mixing pineapple into savory foods or bananas in with peas. A good smash-up is our thing. Recently, I realized Elle hadn’t tried papaya fruit yet! This fruit is not my favorite because of its musky smell, but my mom loves it and, after trying it, so does […]

Carrot Apple Ginger Puree

I have a 13-month old who loved carrots as a baby. I would steam them, then puree them up in my Baby Bullet and she couldn’t eat enough of them. Even when she started cutting those top and bottom teeth, I would hand her a steamed baby carrot and she would gnaw her way through it. […]

Healthy Carrot Puree

For a first foods puree, you want to make sure you dice the carrots all the same size so they cook evenly. Steam them for 20 minutes or until they are really tender. Since your baby is just learning how to eat, make sure the carrots are extra soft before pureeing them to keep your little one from choking on any tiny, […]

Chicken with Carrots and Corn

Babies need more protein than adults because they’re growing so fast. This is especially true in the first few years of your baby’s life. Most of the time, I cook with organic skinless, boneless chicken breasts, but the thigh is higher in fat than the breast, which is a good thing for babies and it […]
