How did you like my ABC smoothie? I do make ABC juice,ABC soups often,hence gave a thought about ABC puree for babies. I shall soon post ABC juice and soups which I learnt from few friends. This is ideal for babies above 6 months after having tried apple,beet root and carrot individually. I am not for purees for babies. I feel babies can have mashed foods from 6 months at the worst by 8 months. And too many purees spoil them and they mix textures. This is the reason behind not having given many puree recipes in baby food although I found mommies too keen on puree recipes. ABC juice is a miracle drink and it recommended for cancer cure,heart diseases and perfect complexion. It supplements brain functioning and lung functioning. The combination of apple ,beet and carrot gives a long term health . The power of two vegetables and one fruit is like a super power. It gives you Vitamin A, B1, B2, B6,B3 C, E ,K, Folate, Niacin, Zinc, Copper, Magnesium, Potassium, Phosphorus, Iron, Calcium, Sodium, Potassium, Magnesium, Selenium, beta-carotene and Manganese. No storing of this combo.Consume immediately after making. I make it with raw fruit and veggies. But here I suggest you to steam vegetables as it is for 6 m baby.
- Beet root-1/2(medium sized)
- Carrot-1(medium sized)
1.Wash all well.
2.Peel the skin of beet and carrot.
3.Grate them and steam cook.
4.When you are about to add everything to blender peel apple and grate.
5.Just blend them together and serve
Always consult your pediatrician before trying any new food.
Prefer this for afternoon time.
You can also just mash these together and offer your baby if you don’t prefer blending baby food(I hardly use blender for my baby).
Consider family history of allergy.
Use sterilzed bowls for baby.
I recommend you to go for puree with steamed veggies for 6 months old,move to mashed (steamed veggies) for 7 months to 9 months ,move to just mixing grated and steamed ingredients for 10 months and above one year just give it raw. This is just a suggestion.
The quantity and ratio depends on your taste.
