Baby Food Puree for 6 Months Old Baby

Apple Puree (can add berries or banana)

Buy 1 large apple and other fruits, if wanted and preferably organic. Place the ingredients in a pan and cook over low heat for 5-8 minutes until soft. Mix and puree the fruits and serve warm.

Minced Steak or Chicken and Sweetcorn Chowder

Prepare 300ml of organic milk, 1 medium potato (diced and smashed), 2 bay leaves, 100g of sweetcorn and parsley, and 100g of minced steak or any meat and salt to taste. Slowly poach the meat in the milk along with the potato and leaves for 8-10 minutes until cooked. Remove them and keep warm. Simmer milk with corn in the pan and add parsley. Bring back to a boil and crush it. Serve it mashed.

Fresh Fruit with Yoghurt

Ripe fruits work with yogurt. Grab some ripe fruit such as mango, 1 tablespoon of water and 4 tablespoons of yoghurt. Peel, stone and finely chop the mango. Then boil the yoghurt and fruit in saucepan. Cool it afterwards before serving. Your baby will surely appreciate it.

Baby Food Puree for 7-12 Month Old Toddler or Higher

Salmon and Broccoli Mash

If you introduce oily fish to your baby, consider salmon. It’s full of brain-boosting omega 3 fatty acids, beta-carotene and calcium. This will make eight servings. Get 75 ml water, 1 small potato (diced), 5-10 small broccoli florets and 100 g fresh skinless salmon. Boil potato and broccoli and simmer for 8-10 minutes until tender. Pour the milk and fish in a frying pan then bring to the boil and simmer more. Finally, smash the cooked fish into the milk and add vegetables.

Eggy Bread

Popular among babies, eggy bread is a good source of iron and B vitamins. Just prepare 1 slice of soft whole meal bread, 1 beaten egg and butter for frying. Heat the butter in a frying pan. Dip the bread in egg until coated. Fry it until golden brown. Remove from the heat and remove excess oil. Cut into tiny fingers and serve along with some slices of tomatoes.

Potato and Cheese Mash

Boil 1 medium carrot and potato until tender. Then mash or puree along with the cheese.
