Boiling. Baking or roasting. Once your fruit or veggie is cooked, blend with enough liquid (water, breast milk, or salt-free broth) to create a smooth texture in a food processor or food mill (for younger babies who are just starting solids). For older babies, mash with a fork for a chunkier texture.

Steaming vegetables requires the same preparations as boiling — fill a pot with water, place the steamer insert filled with sliced produce over the top, and then bring the water to a strong simmer or boil. Cover the pot and allow the veggies in the steamer insert to steam gently. These 12 Vegetable Only Baby Food Purees are a great way to introduce baby to the delicious flavors of vegetables from the very first bite! Recipes for both stage 1 and 2 purees – 6 months and up. Recipes for both stage 1 and 2 purees – 6 months and up.

Water and/or heat destroy vitamins; therefore, the best methods of cooking vegetables for your baby are those that have a minimum cooking time and use the least heat and water. Microwaving, steaming, and baking are best. Microwaving is excellent for nutrient preservation because it uses very little water and short cooking times. Carrot is a very versatile veggie; after your baby has mastered single-vegetable purees, you can mix carrots with a variety of fruits, other veggies, and meats.

Steam or boil the fruit or vegetable. You will want the food to be mushy if your baby has just started on solids. If your baby has been eating for a couple of months you can cook the food until it is easily pierced with a fork to allow a thicker consistency. When it comes to meal prepping fruits, chopped fruits like pineapple and mango are best used in stir fries, peaches, pears, mandarins and apples are great salad toppers, and bananas and berries are the final touches on a filling meal prep breakfast. With fruit, unless you’re cooking it, it’s best to chop it as close to.

These Stage 1 Homemade Baby Food Recipes are age appropriate for those babies who are between 4 and 6 months of age. Many babies start solid foods between 4 months and 6 months. Stage One fruits and veggies we have included are foods that your 4 month old baby.

Stage 1 Baby Foods – Steam These Fruits and Vegetables Before Blending. Because these fruits are fibrous and more difficult to digest for a baby with a developing digestive system, it’s best to steam these foods before pureeing: apples, pears, carrots, green beans, summer squash, peas, sweet potato, pumpkin. Puree in a food processor with a little liquid (water, breast milk, or formula), or mash if your baby can handle more texture.

Peel and pit (or strain) as needed, and then puree in a blender, grinder, or food mill, adding liquid (water, breast milk, formula) as needed to get the desired consistency for your baby (the older baby gets, the less liquid you will need to add).

  • My angel is coming really soon. and I’m afraid that boxed cereals and other boxed foods are not good for him.
    I am really glad about this information.
    thank you.

  • So much better than anything we could buy at the store! This was how I fed my 7 children when they were babies. Great job momma ❤️

  • I jus lost most of my teeth at 33 years old because of my disability. I was born with Bilateral fused Jaws, so I cannot chew at all. I think I now have to start eating baby food. Im not sure if an adult can survive on baby food though

  • I use to make my babygirl her purees I’d freeze in ice cube trays covered and when it was time for eating I’d pop one or two depending what else I was serving her in the microwave and taadaa. She loved her food. Literally though she was, a tortilla and beans, pasta, omg she loves pasta, meatball eating baby lol. She loved her meatballs with speghetti. Yummy! Yummy yummy! My baby��

  • My granddaughter hates applesauce and pears but loves carrots and peas so I have to hide it with other foods. She loves avocado but wasn’t too happy when I mixed it with pears but ate it anyway. ��

  • Raw broccoli for life! Aren’t they tender enough for you? Soak them in an acid solution, like lemon juice or orange juice or both. Be sure they’re cut properly so you’ll see little pieces of them. Leave them in the fridge for one night or if it’s winter even outside the fridge. Finally enjoy this explosion of vitamic C and all the other fantastic nutrients!

  • I hope they have that preppy baby bottles here in Germany as well. Enjoyed your videos specially how you secretly feed your toddler Blake some veggies. My baby is 15 months now. Your channel inspired me to make one too.
