How to make baby food purees - 4-6 month

Posted by Karen Faulkner on
baby purees, baby food, moving onto solids
Here's a great selection of YouTube videos for starting your baby on solids.

Yes, I agree YouTube can be a bit variable but I have selected the best and most useful. And I have watched all of these!

These are all suitable for 4-6 month old babies.

Apricot Compote

    • 200g dried apricots

    • 2 star anise

    • 1 vanilla pod, split lengthways or 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste

    • Finely grated zest of 1 orange

    • 250ml freshly squeezed orange juice (from 3 large oranges)

    • 250ml water


  1. Put all the compote ingredients into a heavy-bottomed, non-corrodible saucepan or casserole dish. Bring the mixture quickly to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for about 15 minutes or until the apricots are plump and tender.

Leave the mixture to cool, blend till smooth and serve at room temperature. This compote keeps well in the fridge for up to a week. Store it with the split vanilla pod and its flavour will continue to improve over time.

The same method for apples (red ones like pink lady) and nectarines and peaches and plums. Yummo!

And the Aussie babies favourite Avocado and Banana. Super yummo!

Make sure you use a soft plastic or silicone baby spoon to feed the baby. The metal spoon in this video would potentially cut the gums. Apart from that I liked her video!
