Carrot and spring squash purée

Baby food for the beginningFridgeConvert baby food

IngredientsConvert
  • 2 pcs carrot
  • 100 g squash
  • 60 ml water
Preparation

  1. Clean the carrots and the squash.
  2. Cube the vegetables and put them into the boiling water to cook well.
  3. Take the vegetables out and blend them until they're smooth. By adding more from the cooking water, you can get a smoother consistency. For older babies, you can just purée them with a fork.
  4. This amount makes two portions for a baby. Freeze it or serve it as the baby's dinner on the same day.

Do not use any seasoning; babies don't need it. At the first times, they only know the taste of mother's milk or the formula's taste. Every flavour is new to them, so the taste of the vegetables are more than enough flavour for baby food.

This recipe also works well with zucchini instead of squash. Just note that it gives more liquid.
