Baby food: Potato and carrot purée
Introducing your baby to homemade food is a wonderful experience and a great opportunity to boost their little bodies with nutrition. A safe and popular choice for little ones is a smooth and mild potato and carrot puree. Here is a simple recipe for you to try:
- 2 medium-sized carrots
- 1 medium-sized potato
How to do it:
Prepare the vegetables:
Peel and cut the carrots and potatoes into small pieces.
Place the carrot and potato pieces in a saucepan and cover with water. Bring to the boil and simmer until the vegetables are soft, which takes about 20 minutes.
Mash the vegetables:
Drain the water and use a potato masher or blender to mash the vegetables into a smooth puree. If the puree is too thick, add a little water until it reaches the desired consistency.
Allow the puree to cool before serving it to your baby. Leftover puree can be stored in the fridge for up to two days or frozen for later use.
Tip: Don't forget to introduce new foods one at a time, especially if your child is under one year old, to observe any allergic reactions.
