  • I would just use sweet potato, carrots and cook it together in boiling water.

  • Subcsribe (free) on the Kidspot site. They have some fantastic recipes for babies/.toddlers/ children upwards. Woolworths also have a free site. I think it is called Woolworths Baby and Toddler Club.
    They have good recipes too. THe often have slight variations of ingredients and preparation methods for various age groups with the same recipe. One of our little ones loved pureed sweet potato. I used to vary what I sometimes added to it.

  • Basically, whatever you eat is fine for bub, tone down the sugar and salt….should be fine. As long as you don’t live on Maccas :/

  • All the baby websites have alot of recipes especially heinz site :)

  • Lamb cous cous and veggies or salmon potato and broccoli. Both puréed. One Handed Cooks website and magazine has great low salt and sugar recipes.

  • Slow cook beef and pumpkin them blend together to purée form

  • Look in the recipe section you may find some good ones.

  • I would just carry on giving puree foods just do different kinds.
    My son used to love roast chicken and veg all blended up.

  • pureed soups for lunch chicken and vegetable ,chicken and corn, pumkin and carrot I also introduced pasta pureed and jelly, bangers and mash was also a favourite puree the sausages and gravy then freeze in ice cube trays so its ready when you need it the only thing that I have found that doesn’t freeze well is petite miam yoghurt it seperates.

  • my little ones always loved casseroles lots of veggies some meat n all blitzed up to the texture u desire, with my now 12 month old at 6 months had our veggies blitzed. for breakky I make porridge with water and add fruit puree. give him whatever u are comfortable with :-)

  • I have been experimenting. I cook sweet potato, carrot, apple and squeeze in orange juice. Another good one is apple and pear. I freeze it, then when he is due to have it, I mash banana in it.
    Another is strawberry, blueberry, apple and pear. You could also add banana to that one. Another fave of my little guy’s is broccoli, sweet potato and carrot.
    Or banana and avocado. I find a fruit or vege that the guy likes then start mixing in new flavours.
    I also put two tablespoons of rolled oats in a cup, add three tablespoons of milk, cover it and put in the fridge. Then in the morning, add the apple and pear and mashed banana. He loves it! Plus it’s already made and ready to go.
