Baby’s first carrot puree recipe steps
For baby’s first purée, I recommend the carrot. It is full of vitamins, has a nice orange color that baby will like a lot, and it is sweet, perfect to introduce a new solid food!
For his first purées, it is necessary to put only one food with mineral water. Baby must discover one food at a time, any new food must be introduced with a minimum interval of 3 days. It will allow you to see if everything is going well with your baby and his new way of eating and if it does not make any allergies or food intolerance.
The puree should be smooth and easy to eat for your baby.
Here’s what you need to prepare your baby’s first carrot purée recipe (from 4 months):
- 1 carrot
- A little bit of butter
Start by washing and peeling your carrot. Ideally you have purchased an organic carrot.
Once washed and peeled, cut your carrot into thin slices, that makes cooking faster.
Put your pretty carrot slices in steaming 8 minutes.
Once cooking is complete, all you have to do is to mix them with a little bit of cooking water. The baby puree should be smooth and easy to eat for your baby.
To finish, add a little hazelnut of butter to your nice carrot baby puree. Your baby’s first puree recipe is finished, and ready to be tasted!
Bon appétit baby !
After preparing this delicious carrot puree for your baby, it’s important to know the best storage practices to ensure freshness and food safety.
- Refrigeration: Once the carrot puree is prepared, let it cool at room temperature for approximately 30 minutes. Then, transfer the puree into an airtight container or a clean glass jar with a tightly sealed lid. You can refrigerate the carrot puree for a maximum of 2 to 3 days. Always ensure it is kept at an appropriate refrigeration temperature.
- Freezing: If you wish to store it for a longer period, freezing is a great option. Place the carrot puree into ice cube trays to create individual portions, then transfer the frozen cubes into an airtight freezer bag. Label the bag with the date for easy tracking. Carrot puree can be stored in the freezer for up to 3 months. When thawing, simply place the desired portion in the refrigerator overnight or gently heat it in a double boiler for a perfect consistency.
Remember to check the smell and appearance of the puree before feeding it to your baby after storage. If it appears to have spoiled or developed an unusual odor, it’s best not to feed it to your baby and dispose of it. Always prioritize freshness and food safety for your little one!
With these storage tips, you can prepare delicious carrot purees for your baby in advance and have them on hand when your little one is hungry.
