How to Make Basic Vegetable and Fruit Purees for Baby

You can make baby food from just about any fresh vegetable or fruit by pureeing them. Homemade baby food purees from fruits and vegetables are easy to make and nutritious. Before you begin cooking, be sure to thoroughly clean the cooking area, your tools and equipment, and your hands.

  1. Prepare the fresh produce by washing, peeling, and removing seeds.

  2. Boil the fruits or vegetables until soft.

    You don’t need to boil fruits that are already soft.

  3. Puree the fruit or veggie in a food processor.

    If you don’t own a food processor, you can use a blender or hand mixer.

  4. Add a teaspoon of water (or more or less, depending on the fruit or veggie) to get the desired consistency.

    As a general rule, any basic puree should be thin but manageable with a spoon.

While your child ages, add less water to make the puree thicker and gradually move your child toward chunkier foods.
