Easy Tips for Baby’s First Foods

Easy Baby First Foods

  • Mashed banana
  • Mashed avocado
  • Baked and mashed sweet potato, butternut squash, acorn squash
  • Steamed and pureed turnip
  • Steamed and pureed zucchini
  • Steamed and pureed broccoli
  • Steamed and pureed carrots
  • Steamed and pureed peas
  • Blended hard boiled egg
  • Peeled, steamed, pureed pears, plums, peaches, nectarines
  • Oatmeal with some breast-milk or formula, a little bit of cinnamon, and some mashed banana
  • Iron-fortified baby rice cereal

Important Tips

  • Food should be pureed to liquid consistency
  • When steaming food, don’t let the water touch the fruits/veggies because it leaches vitamins and minerals out of the food and into the water (which is why the water turns green when steaming broccoli!).
