Baby Guacamole

Baby’s Guacamole

Guacamole is a great option for one of baby’s 1st foods. Avocados are good for the heart, helps regulates blood pressure, anti-cancer benefits, great for the eyes and high in Omega-3 fatty acids which help with brain development. Plus it’s an item that you can make for yourself, and children love to eat the same thing that mom and dad are.

As I’ve stated before I love Mexican food, and who doesn’t love guacamole? I’ve wanted my daughter to experience all sorts of flavors and spices so nothing is off limits for a least a sample, unless it’s really hot or too spicy. But I feel if you introduce a large variety of flavors then they should grow up less picky and eat most things.

As my daughter has gotten older I’ve made her guacamole more chunky and I sometimes just giver her avocado cubed. Just make sure that you give your baby the correct consistency for their age, and I’m sure they will be big fans of this guacamole. Enjoy!

Directions

1 large ripe avocado

Mash avocado and add water until you have reached the desired consistency for your baby. The older they get you could use lime juice instead of water.

Enjoy!

Homemade Baby Applesauce

Homemade applesauce is easier then you think. When my daughter turned 6 months I knew that I was going to make all her baby food, but I had never made applesauce, so I was nervous of what it’d taste like. But it was so easy and tasted great. My daughter gobbled it up, and she still loves it to this day at 19 months. This recipe is also great for adults that enjoy applesauce. Enjoy this tasty baby food, for mommy and baby!

Applesauce

Homemade Baby Applesauce

6 sweet apples (3lbs) quartered and cored
gala, pink lady or McIntosh all are good choices

Optional: Cinnamon sprinkled on top at time of serving

Directions

  1. Pour water into large saucepan to a depth of 1”. Place the apples in a steam basket and then into the pot.
  2. Cover and steam 10-12 minutes.
  3. Remove the basket from the pot, but save the cooking liquid.
  4. Once the apples are cooled, remove and discard the skin.
  5. Transfer apples to a blender and puree, add enough of the cooking liquid to reach the consistency that your baby can handle (you could also add breast milk or formula at this point if you want).

Storing: Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 3 days, or freeze individual servings in an ice cube tray (covered) for up to 3 months.

Apples are full of fiber and vitamin C. They also promote heart health and help control cholesterol levels. They are a great first food for baby because allergies are very rare to apples and they are easily digested and can help prevent constipation. Plus they are sweet and tasty.
