Bluenana // Blueberry + Banana – Easy Homemade Baby Food

www.younglovemommy.com

I’ve been meaning to post some of the food recipes I feed Nico for a while now but I never got around to it till now.  He has enjoyed this quite a lot, you can’t go wrong with anything banana.  It’s a great first food to give your little one at the recommended age of 6 months.

Blueberries are rich in antioxidants, fiber, vitamin C & manganese and are fantastic for brain development – baby brain food. Bananas contain potassium, fiber, calcium, magnesium phosphorus and iron. They are also a good source of Vitamins A and C as well as niacin, thiamine, and riboflavin.
Recipe:
Half a banana 
Handful of blueberries
2 tablespoons of Kefir (Kefir is a pro-biotic, you can find more information on Kefir here, may also substitute for BM or formula)
I personally remove the skins off the blueberry, it makes the puree a bit sour. Babies prefer sweeter things like your breast milk.  I was peeling them off at first but that was a mess! You can mash it along with the banana and just remove the skins after, much easier and no mess. 
Depending on how old your little one is and their gag reflex, you can mash finely or leave it chunkier for older babies!
Hope you and your kiddos enjoy!

P.S. For those who enjoy yogurt, this doesn’t have to be only baby food, it’s nothing I wouldn’t eat myself and that is the point.

  1. When ours were babies, I made almost all the food fresh. Our four children will be turning four next month.Your recipe looks great. I will pass it on to my sister-in-law who has a baby.

  2. making your own baby food makes you my hero, I was the horrible mom who did none of that stuff. I always say if we ever get another baby it will be nursing, cloth diapering and making my own food for the baby
