Your baby needs all the essential nutrients to have a healthy and normal growth and fruits are rich in nutrients and antioxidants. Starting your baby’s weaning process with fruits is an ideal way to start weaning your baby from its total milk diet.
Since it is during the weaning process that you can help develop your child’s taste buds, it is important for you to have the right foods for your baby.
It might be difficult for some to conjure up some good, tasty and nutritious food for their baby; hence it is easiest to depend on fruit purees in the beginning, as fruits allow you to have variety and the least bit of rejection from the baby.
This certainly helps ease the parent’s mental stress as to what they can feed their baby while weaning it from its milk. Try this wholesome fruit puree recipe, it might be a new variation you may have for your child.
- 1 Avocado
- 1 Ripe Guava
- 1 Banana
- Scoop the avocado and transfer to a bowl. Peel the guava and remove all the seeds inside retaining only the pulpy part. If you are using a ripe guava, chop into tiny pieces and put into the bowl along with the avocado. If you are using a ripe but hard guava, it would be best to stew the guava or else it would be difficult to mash. While stewing the guava, you can add a pinch of cinnamon to enhance the flavours. Cool the guava stew before adding to the other fruits.
- Chop the banana into the bowl of avocado and guava and mash the fruits to form a puree. You can even use the blender to make the fruit puree. As you are using banana, keep the quantity low, as you do not want the puree to turn brown. If you intend to store the fruit puree in the refrigerator, drop out the banana, as the banana will discolour after a while, turning the fruit puree a brownish colour.
