08 Oct Butternut Squash, Carrot And Sweetcorn Puree
A veggie-filled puree to get all the good stuff into bub.
It should be safe to introduce corn to your baby at six months, however only give a small amount mixed with other vegetables as it is high in fibre.
Suitable from 6 months
Makes: 4 portions
Suitable for freezing
300g (10oz) butternut squash, peeled and chopped
1 medium carrot (approx 75g/3oz), peeled and sliced
40g (1½ oz) sweetcorn, frozen or tinned
Put the butternut squash and carrot into a saucepan and cover with 150ml (5fl oz) boiling water. Cover and cook for 10 minutes.
Add the sweetcorn and continue to cook for 3 minutes until all the vegetables are tender. Blend to a purée using an electric hand blender.
Note: Occasionally babies who have a family history of allergy or who suffer from eczema may have a reaction to corn.
