Potato Puree Recipe: Easy And Delicious

Potato Puree is a great choice of meal when you want get your baby started on solid foods, usually between 6 to 8 months old.

Potatoes are rich in vitamins, minerals, fibers and phytochemicals that help to prevent diseases.

I discovered this very potato puree recipe I’m about to share with you when I started my first baby on solid foods at 7 months.

He didn’t like the ones I’ve been making prior to discovering this very recipe because I made potato puree without adding fat, and he being a picky eater didn’t make it any easier.

So, it was fulfilling for me when he developed interest in the potato puree I made differently.

As a matter of fact, he started having potato puree every day!

You can imagine my joy!

Potato puree can also be mixed with other vegetables and proteins such as: peas, green beans, carrots, chicken, broccoli, avocado etc. To make it a more nutritious meal for your child.
