Sweet Potato Puree with a tint of Apple Sauce (Starter foods 6-month-old)

Sweet Potato Puree for Babies pinit

An oldie but a goodie that never fails. Try this for your 6-month-old, 😀.

It’s quite interesting how you can come up with exciting blends of purées using staple ingredients you always have in your pantry.

That’s what I love about homemade baby food, you have a wide range of interesting and delicious food options rather than being stuck with off-the-shelf cereals, which to me can be kind of boring.

Take a look at our recipe today—who would have guessed that sweet potato with a hint of apple could be so flavorful, I practically had to give some to my daughter before I ate it all?

It’s a perfect starter purée for your little one. It sure looks and tastes very creamy.

🍈 Don’t forget to save so you can always come back to this.
🍈 Tag and share with a mum who needs this.

Tips: You can blend your potatoes in a batch and store in your freezer.
You can then thaw 12-24hours before use and steam to get it warm.

Age: This purée is suitable for babies from 6 months
