Purees are smooth and easy to digest food for babies above six months. When you start solids, giving healthy homemade solid food which is nutritious is important.  Hurrying upon giving multiple cereals or pulses when you just start isn’t a good idea either. Initially you can give one ingredient purees and gradually shift to combination of two or three ingredients which makes it more nutritious and better tasting. Here is one such combination puree – SWEET POTATO and APPLE PUREE For Babies.

Sweet Potato Apple Puree for Babies

When I started solids for my daughter who was a premature baby, I wasn’t much aware of these. I wasn’t given much choices but asked to start with Sprouted Ragi Powder which is traditionally the first food here. She had her share of difficulty and digestion issues in the early days as I did not start it correctly. Agreed its a great first food for babies, but definitely after you start on easy going foods like these purees and then cereals. A combination can help your little one cope to a variety of tastes too.

Can be given to 6 Months +
