Salmon & Butternut Squash baby food puree
This baby food puree is suitable for weaning babies aged 6 months – 7 months
The perfect fall baby food puree for your little one to explore.
Salmon is rich in omega-3 acids which is essential for your baby’s developing brain, eye and nerve system. It can be tricky to incorporate fishes rich in omega-3 acids into your baby’s diet, as sometimes the puree tastes too ”fishy”.
This baby food puree combo with salmon is so simple to make and yet very nutritious and delicious, made of ingredients you mainly already have lying in the fridge.
– 1/2 butternut squash
– 1 small salmon filet – Choose wild caught salmon which is usually from Alaska)
– 6 cherry tomatoes
– 2 cauliflower florets
– Seasoning for the salmon – I just minced garlic and sprinkled with thyme and dill.
Omit the seasoning for babies under 8 months.
All organic if possible.
1. Wash, peel and chop the vegetables and add them to a big pot.
2. Add a little water and leave it to boil
3. Season the salmon and cover it in a baking sheet and bake it for about 15 min on 200C until it is well cooked.
Make sure it is thoroughly cooked to kill the foodborne bacteria and viruses that thrive in raw or undercooked fish.
4. When the vegetables are done cooking just puree or mash it and add the salmon (without skin) on top or you can also puree it if your baby can’t chew yet. It is up to you.
The recommendations for when to introduce fish is different from country to country so just follow what your own recommends.
