Ingredients

Method

  • 1 x small/medium pumpkin

Ingredients

Method

  1. Cut the pumpkin in half and scoop out the seeds
  2. Peel the pumpkin
  3. Cut the flesh into ½ inch cubes
  4. Steam or boil the pumpkin in a saucepan over a medium heat for 15 minutes, or until very tender
  5. Puree the pumpkin with 4-5 tablespoons of cooking water (to help retain some nutrients, remember to save water when draining pumpkin) in a food processor or using a hand blender until super smooth

Swap this for that

To make the taste a little more familiar, why not blend with your baby's usual milk instead of water

Handy tips

If your little one pulls a funny face, don't worry it's just reeeally new. Remember, it can take 8 tries before learning to accept a new food
