Naturally, homemade baby meals are simple and take less than 20 minutes to prepare. The recipes will include vitamins, fibers, minerals, and other nutrients that will aid in the development of the baby’s immune system.

PEAR PUREE

This is the quickest way to create fruit puree for your baby. It is also strong in vitamin C, which helps to boost the immune system, vitamin K, which helps to strengthen the bones, and fibre, which helps to avoid constipation and ease digestion. This purée calls for 2 ripe pears.

STEPS

  • Peel the back of the pear and cut it to the desired size.

  • Steam chopped pear in a steamer basket for 10-15 minutes.

  • Let cool slightly before transferring to a blender. Blend till smooth

  • Serve to eat

SWEET POTATO PUREE

One of the best things about sweet potatoes is that they are naturally sweet, making them one of the best baby foods. Furthermore, sweet potatoes are abundant in vitamins C, A, and D, as well as beta-carotene, which aids in immune system function. This purée calls for 2 sweet potatoes.

STEPS

  • Wash and peel the back of the sweet potato, then chop into equal-sized chunks and rinse with water.

  • Cook for about 15 minutes in boiled water on low heat, until the potato is soft. Rinse in cold water for 3 minutes to halt the cooking process.

  • Blend puree until smooth. Add water, breast milk, or formula to get the desired consistency.

  • Eat the sweet potato on its own or with a variety of different vegetables.

  • Serve to eat.

SPINACH PUREE

Spinach is high in vitamins A and C, which promotes healthy muscular growth. 4 cups of fresh or frozen spinach are all you need to make this puree.

STEPS

  • Steam the spinach for 5-10 minutes, or roast it for 5-7 minutes at 400°F.

  • In a food processor or blender, puree until smooth. To get the desired consistency, add water, breast milk, or formula for a creamier texture.

  • Serve and eat.

ZUCCHINI PUREE

Zucchini is heart-healthy and high in antioxidants, manganese, and potassium. Since babies will eat the zucchini skin, make sure it’s organic. You will only need two organic zucchinis for this recipe.

STEPS

  • Steam the Zucchini for 8-10 minutes with the skin on, or roast for 8-10 minutes at 450 degrees F.

  • In a food processor or blender, puree until smooth. Add water or breast milk, to get the desired consistency or formula for a creamier texture.

  • Serve and eat.

The purees listed above can be frozen for three months and refrigerated for two to three days. These purees are appropriate for babies aged 6 months and up. It is important to note that it takes time for babies to adjust to new foods. So, try a new food a few times.
