|Pear Puree | Cook a little food Purees
Most fruits and vegetables need to be lightly cooked
before being pureed and served to your baby. Apart from
pear, apple, pumpkin and other squashes, spinach, French
beans, sweet potato, carrots, sweet corn, broccoli,
leek, plums, nectarines etc can be prepared in the same
way as below. Make it a point to feed baby vegetables
and fruits, combine them to make them more palatable
if your baby won't have it any other way. Babies may
show resistance at first to unfamiliar tastes so to
make life a little easier, you can perhaps combine the
sweeter fruit/vegetable with the unpopular one to suit
your baby's palate. An example: mix pumpkin with beans.
Experiment along the way and don't give up!
