Banana Beetroot and Blueberry Baby Food Pouch Puree

As your baby grows, the beneficial bacteria in the gut is establishing itself laying the foundations for a healthy immune system, and banana helps provide the prebiotics to feed them. Beets are of great importance for healthy development of your baby as they are highly nutritious and rich in Calcium, Potassium and vitamin A, have a very high level of fiber and their typical vivid purple colour makes the food attractive to kids. When you give your baby blueberries you will feed it with a super food, rich in nutrients, vitamins, fiber and antioxidants.

Banana, beetroot and blueberry can be used in so many different ways! I’ve created 4 recipe books that contain banana, beetroot and blueberry. If you are a new parent though you can get my first book in downloadable format absolutely free by going to http://littlemashies.com/free It is full of baby food ideas and has over 50 recipes from the initial phase of starting pureed solids, right through to meal ideas for older babies. When you sign up we will send you an email asking to confirm you are not a robot (yep we do get a lot of spam you wouldn’t believe some of the bots out there these days!)… anyway as soon as you confirm you are a human being my Baby Food ebook (valued at $9.95) will be sent straight to you in digital format so you can just save it or print it off to use when you need new ideas.
