Baby Nutrition: 6-7 months: Soft purees

How do I start?

Purées are the best way to introduce your baby to a mixed diet. These smooth mixtures of fruit, vegetables or baby rice (a vitamin and iron-enriched, sugar-free milky tasting form of powdered rice) are easily prepared using your Braun MultiQuick hand blender. To begin with, keep purées quite runny and very smooth using your Braun MultiQuick hand blender on a high speed - bananas are a particular favourite. Use water, breast milk or formula to achieve the right consistency.

You should always peel fruit and remove stalks, pips and seeds. It is important to know that most fruits and vegetables need to be cooked before serving in order to soften optimally. You can introduce lentils at this initial stage. However, with other pulses such as peas, chickpeas and beans, it is important to achieve a soft consistency and puree them thoroughly. It is therefore advisable to reserve these nutritious foods for the later stages of weaning to ensure a desirable consistency.

How much, how often?

Start with 1-2 teaspoons of puréed fruit or vegetable once a day. When your baby is happy to take more, offer solids twice a day.
Baby Nutrition Stage 2 - Making purées

Making purées

Making purées is easy with the right equipment. First, peel or scrub your fruit or vegetables and cut into pieces. Simmer or bake if required but avoid adding salt or sugar. Blend thoroughly using your MultiQuick hand blender. If there are any pips or fires, push the purée through a sieve using the back of a spoon. If your purée is to thick and needs more liquid, you can add your baby's usual milk or a little bit of the vitamin-rich cooking water from the vegetables.
Baby-Nutrition Stage 2 - Storing

Storing what you make

It is most cost and time effective to make batches of food for your baby and then freeze them to have it always ready.
At the early stages of weaning, ice cube trays with fitting lids make perfect containers for portion-sized fruit and vegetable purées. As your baby's appetite grows you will need to store food in larger, freezable containers with lids.

Tips for storing food:

What is the optimum temperature for freezing?

For optimal food preservation use a freezer that freezes food to -18°C within 24 hours.

Always reheat foods until they are piping hot. Allow to cool and test temperature yourself before serving to your baby.
