Beet Banana & Blueberry Baby 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 probiotics 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 are so awesome that I’ve done quite a few recipes containing them. Some are complicated, for older kids, and some are simple for pureed baby food. You can get it here All of my recipes can be used with or without Little Mashies squeeze containers, you don’t have to buy my product to benefit from the recipe ebook, it’s just something I’ve put together after about 10,000 emails asking me to ☺ enjoy!
