Recipe notes

This puree is naturally a little sweet and has a lovely soft texture. You can add less water when blending and use it as a dip with flatbreads or simply spread on toast. Don’t forget to reserve a couple of batons of vegetables for your baby to hold and gnaw on.

Keeps in the fridge in an airtight container for 3 days or freezes well for 1 month. Defrost in the fridge overnight and reheat on the hob or in the microwave until piping hot. Stir well and always check the heat of baby food before serving.

*The Department of Health and the World Health Organization recommend nothing but breastfeeding for the first 6 months of a baby's life. At around 6 months your baby may show signs that they're ready for solid food.
