Beginner Baby Blends 6 Months

chloebabyfood.jpg

Chloe T. is now just over 6 months old. Although we started her on basic solids at 4 months old, just 1 ingredient purees really really smoothly blended.  But now is the fun part with multiple fruit + veg + protein blends & chunky textures.  As of this month we are only doing breakfast and dinner as solid foods & formula on demand all day. Here are some of chloe’s fav mixes. Give them a try for your little and let me know how it goes!

Here are some of our favourite blends, see below for 2 examples of how to’s with step by step instructions

Breakfasts:

Avocado, Apple & Cinnamon + THIS Love Child Organics Cereal

Banana, Avocado + Cereal

Kiwi , Spinach + Cereal

Mango, Strawberry + Cereal

Dinners:

Sweet Potato, Peas, & Organic Chicken

Grass fed Beef, Yam & Spinach

Pear, Kale & Green beans

Roasted Potato, Parmesan & Sweet Corn

Roasted Pumpkin, Coconut oil & Lentils

Mango + Carrot + Peaches + Mint 

I love to add herbs to Chloe’s food – it adds a little something extra for her tiny developing tastebuds & some research has proven a less picky eater when exposed to a range of flavors as their first tastes of real food!

  1. 6 Organic Carrots, 2 Peaches, 2 Mangos + 4-5 mint leaves
  2. Wash all produce very well, chop the carrots, peaches and mangos and shred mint leaves
  3. Boil the carrots until very soft
  4. Add in the peaches and mangos for about 5 more minutes
  5. Drain out almost all water ( keep about 2 tablespoons)
  6. Add all into blender including 2 tablespoons of boiling water & mint ( you may also use breastmilk, formula or broth)
  7. Blend until very very smooth for young babies ( 4-6 months) or blend until chunky for babies 6 months +
  8. Freeze for 4-5 hours and label date made in ziplock bags
  9. I love to use these small silicone chocolate moulds I found on amazon HERE – pop into freezer – when frozen you can throw the cubes into ziplock bags with a date written on them and use them when you need. – Store for about 3 months frozen only.

Cauliflower + Spinach + Olive Oil + Basil

  1. 1 head of organic cauliflower, handful of organic spinach, 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil, 5-6 fresh basil leaves
  2. Boil Cauliflower until very tender
  3. Add in spinach & basil for about 3 more minutes
  4. Drain water except 2 tablespoons ( organic veggie broth would be super good in this as well! )
  5. Add 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil
  6. Add all to blender
  7. Pulse until chunky texture forms and all large clumps are gone
  8. Pour into silicone moulds and freeze into cubes – good up to 3-4 months
  9. This recipe is suggested for 6 + months because of the texture and the healthy fats added!

When we are in a time pinch and need food fast we LOVE the Love Child Organics line for their wholesome, organic & simple , interesting ingredients.

We also love the Baby Gourmet puffs & the Baby Mum-mums for first teething biscuits!
