Sweet Potato and Spinach Puree

Spinach, a rich source of iron but unfortunately not a popular choice with babies, can pose a problem when fed on its own. Try mixing it with sweet potato or carrots or pumpkin and your baby should not have any problems when she eats this combo. Initially your baby will be more comfortable with the sweet-tasting foods so you may want to combine one sweet fruit with an unpopular vegetable to balance things out.

1 sweet potato Handful sprigs or leaves of spinach

1. Boil the root vegetable in some water till done. Peel and mash with a fork till smooth. Again you can choose other methods to cook i.e. steaming or using the microwave.

2. Wash the cut spinach leaves and steam till soft. Add the spinach to the mashed potato and mix well.

3. Serve when done. Your baby will take on to the sweetness of the potato rather well and not fuss over the spinach as much.

4. Try mixing sweet potato with apple! In fact do not be afraid to try fruit-veggie combo. Bake or steam the sweet potato and mash the diced pieces with the cooked apple and serve. You will be surprised as many such combinations though odd, work really well with babies.
