Butternut Baby ~ Pumpkin Baby Food

from our friends at Nature Baby...

Butternut Baby

Pumpkin or butternut is a perfect first food for baby that’s easily pureed and full of rich flavours and bright colour. It’s also high in fibre, beta-carotene, protein and potassium. Combined with quinoa enriched baby cereal you also get the goodness essential amino acids, magnesium, iron and vitamin B-6.

Here’s how we made ours:
1 cup of peeled and chopped butternut or pumpkin
Babynat First Flavour Organic Infant Cereal

Boil, steam or bake pumpkin until tender. Mash and whip with a fork until creamy and smooth, using a little of the reserved cooking water if needed. Prepare baby cereal with breast milk or water as per package instructions and then stir in approximately 2 tablespoons of the prepared cereal into pumpkin mixture. Delicious!

Baby can enjoy this meal today and you can store the rest in perfect portions in your mumi&bubi Solids Starter Kit baby food storage trays. Purchase online at mumi&bubi, or in store at Nature Baby Newmarket and Grey Lynn.
