#2 Sweet Fall Puree - 4 to 12 months
- 2 peel/core/dice pears
- 1/4 cup dry oats
- 1/8 tsp cloves
- 1/8 tsp cinnamon
Optional: 2 - 3 softened dates (soak in warm water for about 10 minutes)
- In medium saucepan cook pears, oats, and cloves/cinnamon on medium heat with about 1 cup of water for 10-15 minutes or until pears are tender. Combine all ingredients into the blender and puree until you reach desired consistency.
Tip: Softened dates can be pureed smooth or left a bit chunky, depending at which stage your little one is at.
Tip: Add small amounts of water until you've reached your desired consistency (try using breast milk or formula as an alternative).
REMINDER: Make sure your food is always age appropriate. Never hesitate to consult with your pediatrician before introducing new foods. We recommend spacing new foods 4 days apart, so you can spot and identify any food allergies. Have fun and be creative!
Many pediatricians will remind you that breast milk or formula feeding should still be your babies main source of nutrition until the age of 1.
AVOID: A few common food allergens are eggs, milk, wheat, soy, tree nuts, fish, and shellfish.
Honey is should be avoided the first year because it can cause botulism.
Wait until your baby is 10 - 12 months before trying gas-inducing foods such as beans, broccoli, onions, fruit juice, wheat, cauliflower, garlic, and dairy. A gassy baby isn’t a happy baby.
