Delicious Vegetable Purees For Tweens
Feeding the babies is the most difficult and fun part of parenting. Babies also need the same amount and variety of nutrients as adults do. Parents are always concerned about the babies eating habits. As always mommies have some fun, simple ideas in feeding their babies. For tweens (9-12months) try to add more nutritious foods as they need more strength during this stage.
A little common sense goes a long way, as growing babies should get 4-5 servings of fruits and vegetables each day and it depends on the age(6,9,or12 months). So mommies hold up your sleeves here comes the difficult task to feed their babies with veggies. Try to feed the babies with single vegetables a day and continue the same for 3-4 days, after that with a new veggie again. But overfeed or force-feed the baby.
Get in the concept of “Rainbow Feeding”. This the time where your baby absorbs different colors. Better feed them with different colored veggies. Start with sweet veggies like sweet potato, carrot, beetroot, pumpkins, butternut squash and move on to the greens like spinach, peas, and green beans.
Make a smooth puree of these vegetables for 4-6 months babies, and thinly sliced, or little chunks of boiled veggies for 9-12 months babies. If you are a working mom, there are organic baby food brands like Happa Foods, Gerber, and Ellas Kitchen provides puree for the babies.
