Nutritious Vegetable Purees for Babies 5 Months Up

Nutritious Vegetable Purees for Babies 5 Months Up

Vegetables may not be as popular with your child as fruits, or so you may feel. This is to do with the sweetness factor, as babies are most familiar with this taste. Peas, pumpkin are some vegetables which are not only sweet-tasting but also contain essential vitamins. A little cooking is essential to soften the vegetable to achieve a pulpy texture. Steaming is a good method of cooking your veggies as much of the nutrients stays intact. Do not be afraid to try mixing vegetables or fruits to create a medley or even fruits with vegetables though this may sound weird! Continue to experiment and feed your baby vegetables and fruits but vary it by combining 2-3 vegetables and changing the texture as you go along.
