Carrot Potato Beetroot Puree for Babies - Indian Baby Food Recipes

Carrot Potato Beetroot Puree for Babies

Carrot Potato Beetroot Puree can be started once the baby completes 6 months.I have already posted carrot potato puree but this is with 3 combination veggies.This is one puree which gugu liked very much, as its with 3 combination of veggies it is tasty.

Please remember mothers feed is the best and its always good to start with other food only after the baby finishes 6 months.These baby food recipes will help those who are not able to breast feed due to personal / medical conditions.Always consult your pediatrician before introducing any new food.

My Notes:

  • Cook the veggies until it is soft, just press and see to check if it has cooked.
  • Cook covered to retain the nutrients.
  • You can add salt if you prefer.
  • When choosing potatoes, get firm, white variety. And carrots and beets should be sweet and firm.
  • The texture of the puree is purely your preference, I used a blender to get tiny chunky pieces here and there as he likes it that way.As he is 10months old now, I prefer that way too.
  • You can even use a mixie to get a smooth creamy puree.
  • Your baby's poop will be red in colour after having this puree.Do not panic seeing that, it is because of the beets.  
  • Make fresh puree.I don't recommend freezing aby baby food purees.
  • You can feed this twice a week.
