Baby Puree Recipes (Packed with personality!)

Wednesday January 15th 2014

Tired of the same old mashed potato & pumpkin or apple puree recipes? We have found three delicious baby food recipes that are packed with personality and flavour!

Starting solids is such an exciting part of parenthood. Watching my sweet baby, who had tasted nothing but milk for the past 6 months, try new tastes and textures was so much fun! A tiny face peering up at me reacting to the sweetness or sourness of a fruit or the slight bitterness of a vegetable – it made me think a lot about food and preparing a wide variety of foods to (hopefully) prevent a fussy eater.

For a basic start to solids, I highly recommend Annabel Karmel’s Top 100 Baby Purees. It has recipes for 6 months up to 12 months old.

The general guide for starting solids is 4-6 months and you can find more information about there here and here.

When making baby food, we love the Wean Meister Freezer pods (pictured above) for storing and freezing your bub’s yummy meals - made from flexible silicone they are BPA & phthalate free, can be used in the fridge, freezer, microwave, oven and dishwasher and comes complete with a clip on lid that can be labelled.
