Homemade Baby Food: Strawberry, Blueberry and Apple Puree

Making baby food at home is a quick, economical, and healthy way to introduce solid foods to your growing baby.  I mentioned in this post some information on homemade baby food, including a great book that I found with tons of recipes.

As promised, I'm going to begin sharing some baby food recipes with you.  Some of these will be my own creations and others will be straight from the book I referenced previously.  I tasted this mixture after it was blended in the food processor and it was delicious.  I might even use this as a base for an adult smoothie one day.

One of the things to keep in mind when feeding solid foods to a baby, is that they need to eat foods alone before mixing together.  This helps to identify any food allergies a baby might have.  Strawberries tend to be a fruit that can bother children's skin easily.  So, when introducing strawberries, be sure to keep an eye out for a skin rash.

Strawberry, Blueberry and Apple Puree

1/4 cup fresh blueberries
1 cup chopped strawberries
1 apple, peeled, cored and diced

Place fruit in a small saucepan and cook over high heat for 2 minutes, then on low heat for an additional 5 minutes.  Pour into food processor and blend until smooth.  Put into containers to freeze.  Makes 4 servings of 2 ounces each.

To use, simply thaw in the microwave for 1 minute.  Serve alone, or mix with baby oatmeal or rice cereal.  If mixture is too thick for your baby, add a little bit of water.
