Carrots are one of the sweetest vegetables we have out there. That’s the reason most babies love carrot Puree.
I normally wait until 6 months before introducing any solid food to my children.
Because according to the American Academy Paediatrics, mothers should wait for at least 6 months before introducing solid foods to their infants.
Breastfeeding should be the major meal for the first 6 months.
So whenever l introduce it to my children, they instantly welcome it. I’d say they love their yummy carrots puree the most.
Carrot puree is a healthy choice of meal for our little ones. It’s soft and has numerous amazing benefits for babies.
It has a lot of vitamins especially vitamin A, which support a healthy strong immune system for our infants. It’s also rich in fibre that helps with infants bowel movements.
It can be made in a variety of ways, so that baby gets used to a variety of flavours.
Carrots can be paired with other vegetables and fruits such as Potato, Banana, Apple etc, to make it more nutritious for your baby.
In this recipe, I’ll be pairing carrot with potato for a fantastic flavour. Breastmilk or formula can also be added for additional nutrition.
