Sweet Potato and Broccoli Puree

Sweet potatoes are high in Vitamin A, vitamin E, beta carotene, and potassium. It also contains folate and Calcium. Sweet Potato is generally one of the first baby food. Introduced around 7 months. It is easy to digest and has mild flavour

When your baby is ready to try various blends, the pairing of the sweet potato and broccoli is a good start. (Around 9 months)

Broccoli puree alone is bland in taste, pairing it along with sweet potato adds sweet and rich creamy flavour to the puree. You can blend the vegetables to get a smooth texture or chunkier based on the age and eating habits of the baby

Check with your paediatrician before introducing any new food. Always follow the 3-day rule

How do we make the puree?

Very simple.

Steam the cut sweet potato and broccoli together along with some water

When it cools down, blend them together in a jar along with 2-3 tbsp of boiled water or applesauce

Puree can be frozen once it has cooled down completely.
