Expert Tips

You can use seedless green or yellow squash instead of pumpkin.

This pumpkin and potato baby food recipe is a great introduction to solid food for your baby. I recommend starting with a soft creamy texture that you can make thicker as your baby gets accustomed to it.

You can add half a carrot or half a cup of well-cooked lean meat or boiled chicken breast. You can also add half a teaspoon of olive oil when blending.

Directions

  • 1 Wash the pumpkin and potato well.
  • 2 Heat the water, salt, pumpkin and potato in a pot. Cook until well cooked and soft.
  • 3 Blend the pumpkin and potato with two tablespoons of the water they were cooked in. If necessary, add a bit more water.
  • 4 Serve warm, never too hot, to avoid burning the baby's mouth.
