Is your baby ready for weaning? If your child is already six months old, then it’s time to change the usual routine of milk preparation or breastfeeding, and add the solid food preparation in the daily schedule. Because babies are very sensitive, organic baby food recipes would be perfect for them. So, get ready to check on weaning information from fellow mothers, your child’s pediatrician, or from the website. Make sure to buy organic food to give your babies the best.
As a parent, it always excites me to see newborn babies and watch them grow. My sister-in-law is now weaning her first son. After explaining her the benefits of giving organic baby food, we started experimenting on new organic baby food recipes every week.
Some foods to try for the beginner are:
Do not feed your baby protein or dairy at this point.
Once you have introduced these foods and there has not been a reaction, you can feel free to mix them. Mix these ingredients in equal proportions, adding breast milk as needed to thin the consistency. Consider:
Sweet potatoes and apples
Brown rice and banana
Pears and acorn squash
Green beans and barley
Green beans, barley, and carrots
Bananas and kiwi
Oatmeal and peaches
Apple and pumpkin
Avocado and banana
Avocado and brown rice
Vegetable and Grain
Use carrot, swede, parsnip, sweet potato, broccoli or cauliflower.
Boil the vegetable in unsalted water until soft, drain and purèe the vegetable in the stock. Add the porridge, bring to boil again, remove from heat and add the sunflower oil. Wait until cool down and served.
Apple & Pear
Core and cut into quarters 1 ripe pear and 1 eating apple. Grate very finely, blend and mix together.
Variation as milk free fruit porridge (from 5 month):
