Nothing matches nutritious, home-made baby food prepared with seasonal fruits and veggies.
With only a few weeks left of Autumn we want to help you make the most of the abundance of beautiful seasonal food on offer at the moment with some easy to follow recipes.
Cooking in season means that you can save money, shop locally, the food is fresher and tastier and often healthier than cold-stored food. What’s not to love we hear you cry?!
Check out our top 3 easy autumn recipes for your little ones below:
Pumpkin, Potato & Carrot Baby Puree
This baby recipe is easy to prepare, has a sweet pumpkin taste your baby will love and is packed with veggie goodness – as well as being that beautiful autumnal shade of orange! Ideal for babies 6 – 8 months old in the transition phase from bottle or breast feeding to solids.
Ingredients: 2 carrots peeled and cubed, 1 butternut pumpkin (around 1 kg) seeds removed, peeled and cubed, 2 potatoes peeled and cubed, 2.5 cups water
Method: Put the water in a pan and boil. Add the vegetables and cover. Cook for 25-30 mins on medium-high heat. Stir occasionally so it doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan. Puree with a food processor or hand held wand.
Top tip! This recipe makes 30 servings. Save some for the future by using our handy Freezer pods and defrosting in our fabulous Adorabowls. Alternatively you can serve this as pumpkin soup to the rest of the family- all you need to do is season after you have taken out baby’s portions and serve with your favourite bread to mop up all that goodness.
This soup is great for toddlers and the rest of the family will love it too! Beets contain a wonderful amount of calcium, potassium and even vitamin A. Both vitamin A and calcium play a large role in the healthy development of your baby.
Ingredients: 3 beetroots peeled and cut in small pieces. 1 potato peeled and cut in small pieces. 1 chopped onion. 2 cups homemade vegetable broth. ¼ cup yogurt.
Method: Place all ingredients in a pan and let it boil. Let it simmer for about 30 minutes till the vegetables turn soft. Put in a blender and puree. Add the yogurt and serve.
Rhubarb, pear and apple puree
A wonderfully nutritious and tasty home-made puree for your baby. Again this recipe is perfect for babies aged 6 – 8 months old in the transition phase from bottle or breast feeding to solids.
Ingredients: 600g rhubarb (about a bunch), 1 kg red apples (about 8 apples) peeled cored and cubed, 725g pear (3-4 large pears) peeled cored and cubed.
Method: Wash rhubarb and cut off the ends of stalk, slice 1-2 cm thick. Place a large pan over a medium heat. Add the apple and pear cubes and 1L (4 cups) of water and cook for 15 mins until softened. Add rhubarb and cook for a further 15-20 mins until cooked. Puree in a food processor or with a wand in the pan.
Top tip! This recipe makes 36 portions for your baby, so another amazing one to store with our Freezerpods! You can also serve this to the rest of the family for breakfast in our Adorabowls eaten with muesli or cereal instead of milk – it will taste like crumble! Yum!
