Puree and Store!
Cooking homemade baby food puree is not only fun, it’s also pretty easy too. You will be surprised to notice that it actually takes a less time to puree baby food than you believed.
Pureeing homemade baby food is surprisingly simple. Cook the food, allow it to cool down a little, dash it into a blender or a processor and puree incessantly. Don’t be hesitant to puree sweet potatoes unitedly with apples for instance. And don’t be hesitant to use breastmilk. This ingredient will provide a nutrition hike as well as give the baby a familiar flavour!
Start by cooking the vegetable/fruit by steaming because it retains the most nutrients compared to boiling, baking, or microwaving.
Get the steamed vegetable or fruit and transfer them into the machine you have determined to utilise for pureeing.
Keep the fluid that the vegetable/fruits were prepared in. That will be the liquid you use to prepare the puree. Adding the liquid also helps to preserve any nutrients that may have discharged into the water while preparing. You can use the breastmilk for the nutritional boost for your little one.
Place your machine to puree and start to mash the vegetables or fruits.
You can puree the food without any liquid but it’s preferred that you thin the baby food before feeding the baby.
It is advised that fresh pureed baby food be stocked not more than 48 hours (many food safety specialists state that 72 hours is alright.) in the refrigerator. The time limit ensures that the probability of bacteria growth in the puree is held at the minimum. This “rule” applies for veggies, fruits, meats etc.
