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.
