Editor’s note: The following is a guest post written by Annabel Karmel, the British children's chef and kiddie cookbook author. This week Annabel shares some tips, tricks, and recipes for creating purees for the littlest eaters in the family.
The transition from milk to solid food should be gradual. Purees are a great way to introduce baby to a balanced diet, particularly for foods that can be difficult to eat, but provide important nutrients such as red meat or ones that are too soft to be held such as fish. You can’t rush meal time with a baby and remember at first, if they only eat a couple of spoonfuls of puree you are doing well!
To see Annabel demonstrate making stage two fruit and veggie purees, read more.
Have a picky eater who refuses to eat his greens or a lil girl who is begging to be your sous chef, but you don't know how she can help? Submit your cooking and feeding questions to The Children's Table group over in the LilSugar Community, and we'll have Annabel answer them!
