Baby First Foods Twelve Months Old Fish And Vegetable Puree

Homemade Fish And Vegetable Puree Recipe

for Little Mashies reusable food pouches

Ingredients:

1 cup white fish, poached, with bones and skin removed
1/2 cup sweet potato potatoes, peeled and chopped
1 zucchini, diced
1 carrot, peeled and sliced
1 tomato diced
1 tsp parsley, chopped

Instructions:

Step 1: Steam sweet potato and carrot pieces until cooked through, about 15 minutes.
Step 2: Add zucchini and tomato and steam a further 5 minutes.
Step 3: Add the poached fish, vegetables and parsley to a food processor or blender and mix well on high. You can add breast milk, water or formula if a smoother consistency is desired. If your baby is older you can simply mash the ingredients together.
Step 4: If preparing baby food in bulk freeze the puree into ice-cube trays or straight into Little Mashies reusable food pouches.
Step 5: To heat food inside Little Mashies reusable pouches, simply run the pouch under a stream of warm water.

For Baby Led Weaning and Older Kids

For baby led weaning you skip the baby food puree altogether and start with large (2 finger sized) pieces of the food. We would of course do this on our Little Mashies sucky platter! So from 6-9mths of age in baby led weaning foods should be the size of about 2 fingers so that the baby can pick it up and self feed. They also need to be well cooked so they are soft, and with no loose pieces (for example tiny florets that can break off on broccoli, or a slice of apple that's so thin it can break when gnawed on).

From around 9mths with baby led weaning you chop the food very small (to avoid choking). I would suggest 2-4 grains of rice in size. It's a small piece so that if they swallow it whole they won't choke. In traditional baby food recipes this is the stage where we mash food so it has a little texture. At around 12mths of age in baby led weaning the food goes up to bite sizes (and this is the same in non baby led weaning kids), about fingernail sized pieces. Of course some babies will be on a different timeline depending on whether they have heaps or a few teeth. Every baby is different and you just have to watch carefully and get to know how your baby is with food. Never leave them alone whilst eating, and I also recommend sitting them at a table with you for all meals if you can. It helps set the expectation for later in life and you can be a role model for how to eat well. Around 18mths you can offer your little one larger serves again (so a whole apple for example) so that they can learn to take smaller bites themselves, to chew, and to swallow.

Why is sweet potato a great baby food choice? 

Sweet potatoes are a great first food for your baby. There are many cultures around the world who introduce vegetables to their babies before introducing fruits. Sweet potato is one of the more popular of these. Being rich in antioxidants, beta carotene, vitamin C and B complex vitamins, iron and phosphorus, sweet potatoes are a powerhouse of goodness.Compared to potato they are low GI, but their high level of stach makes sweet potatoes a high-calorie food, important for giving energy to your baby ecspecially if they aren't eating as much as you would like.

Love These Little Mashies
POSTED BY ANGE ALLAN
Love these Little Mashies. Wish I'd had them when my kids were little. They are 13, 11 & 10 now but still a fantastic addition to the family. 3 different colours is perfect, so we can personalise the contents for each individual. I'm finally able to send Mr Fussy, to school, with healthy smoothies that he loves. Thanks
