Below are some of the first purees I gave my son. I honestly just looked up puree recipes on Pinterest! A lot of these I had to scale the amount, usually only making about 1/4 or 1/2 of the recipe. The apple recipe is easy because it just calls for 1 apple! The sweet potato was easiest for me, because it was 2 sweet potatoes and I just threw them in the oven, roasted them, cooled them & then blended with spices! My son loved those. You can just play around with the portions!
My son’s pediatrician also recommended giving him watered down peanut butter every week to help prevent allergies. I would water down peanut butter and add it to the apple puree. Eventually as he tried more foods I would just blend the watered down peanut butter & pureed bananas. That was a hit!
I would try to do a new fruit or vegetable every day or every other day. As often as I could! I would get ideas from the Solid Starts Database, it was invaluable! I ended up buying the app, but you can use the free database here. You can look up any food on there and how to serve it based on the baby’s age. It helped tremendously when starting purees and solids.
