Apple puree is a wonderful first food for baby. Use a sweeter variety of apple instead of a tart variety so that you don't need to add any sugar. After introducing apple to your baby for 2 to 3 days, you can even add a pinch of cinnamon to see if your baby likes the taste.
Great for busy mums and dads to make a bunch on a Sunday and freeze for the weeks ahead. This can be used with other first foods for your baby! Apples or pears are fun or even green beans.
