Transitioning from breastfeeding of formula feeding to solids can seem like a very daunting task to embark on, you worry about what to give your child, if they will like it, recipes that will be nutritious and delicious to their taste buds and a host of other things to worry about, not to talk of if they will be picky eaters , trust me is not easy, but i say its very possible to make your baby’s meals from scratch and in bulk which will save you a ton of time to do other things.
Purees are by far they easiest you can give to your baby without much of a fuss, and i always recommend it for mum’s, its easier to get them to take food in a smooth fine texture rather than eat it the way it comes. This sweet potatoes and carrot is one excellent meal for your little one, it has the right amount of natural sweetness, so you don’t need to try to sweeten , it is a perfect meal to introduce to your babies typically from 8 months upwards plus a carries a ton of nutrition that your baby needs to grow well and healthy.
Sweet potatoes contains vitamin A& C as well as antioxidants , Carrots also contain beta carotene an antioxidant which your body transforms to vitamin A, its loaded with fiber which is great for your digestive system and bowel movement , so can you see why this is an excellent meal for your baby?
The one thing that should be upper most in your mind when creating meals for babies is the nutritional benefits , you don’t just want to fill their tummy but also nourish them in the process, so lets get this recipe going.
2 Medium sized carrots
1 Large sweet potatoes
1 Cup water
In large sauce pan , pour in your water, peel your sweet potatoes and cut into small sizes or cubes, clean your carrots by removing the skin and cut into cubes.
Boil your carrots and sweet potatoes until they are very tender about 20 minutes , transfer into a clean blender and blend to a puree, you can add in the water your baby drinks in little bits till you get a puree consistency that you are able to feed your baby.
Transfer into your baby plate and feed while its still warm, pour the remaining content into a clean bowl with lid that you can keep in your fridge or freezer , if frozen this can last for at least 6 days and in the fridge about 3 days.
i hope you try out this recipe and let me know how it went and leave your questions about this in the comments section , i love yo answer them, my 8 months old baby is currently eating this every week and its completely fuss free.
