Your baby is just starting to transition to solid foods – are you going the homemade baby food route or canned baby food? For our first child, we used canned baby food. The second child, we’ve been making baby food. Making our own baby puree has proven to be fun, easy, and cost effective!
Experimenting with different flavor combinations has been fun for both us and our baby. To make a good puree you should have an easy way to steam foods. Most baby purees will require you to steam the vegetables or fruit.
This roasted pear and apple baby puree is a savory and sweet combination with just three ingredients needed. The longest part of the process is roasting the pears – but it is an essential part to add flavor.
If you’re looking for more homemade baby puree recipes, here are 5 puree combinations we love.
