Homemade purée

Chhori had her pasni just before my parents left; it was a fun event and I will post about it soon.

Chhori (2)

She was just over 5 months old when we did her pasni. In Australia, the midwives advise exclusive breastfeeding for 6 months and that was what I was aiming to do. But after pasni, every time we ate anything, Chhori would look at us with puppy eyes, with the innocent look as if saying “I want some of it too.” So we decided that we would start solid slowly.

First we went out and bought a few varieties of organic purée. I discovered that she loves the taste of apple, banana and mango.

These days as I am staying home looking after her, I decided it would be a good idea to give her some homemade purée. It was so easy to make one so here is how I did it.

  • Skin 3 apples and cut them into cubes.
  • apple puree (3)
  • Add half cup of water and apple cubes into a pressure cooker. If you don’t have pressure cooker, use a saucepan.
  • Cook until 3 whistles or if using a saucepan check with a fork and if it goes in easily then the apples are done. Let it cool down.
  • Use a blender or food processor to blend it. If you find the consistency too thick, add a little cooled boiled water.
  • I bought bpa free freezer and microwave safe containers to store them.
  • apple puree (1)
  • The purée is good for 3 days in the fridge and 3 months in the freezers. Mine finished in a week as she loved it.
  • apple puree (2)

Please share other food ideas for a baby. It will be a great help. Thanks in advance.

Take care everyone till my next post.

  1. ya that seems a good idea.

  2. My first one didnt like it earlier. Will surely give it a try this time. How come you manage time for blogging !!

    • Try it early like 5 months so they don’t know how to say no 🙂
      I am doing my best to blog as it brings me happinesses. As you can see I am not as regular but typing whenever I have few free minutes 🙂

  3. Have you heard of BLW? (Baby Led Weaning) if not I would recommend you to try it.
    its real fun watching your baby self feed

  4. Not so much a food idea from me now but a small thing which helped with our Nathan we he started teething. Of course he got very uncomfortable and wanted to chew everything (such as the tables…) so my mother came up with the idea to leave out slices of bread over night so they would get harder till next day. He just loved to chew on those hard bricks of bread during is teething time plus he got something small to eat with it. However I think it only worked because my parents started to feed him with small bread pieces during breakfast already before so he got used to the taste
