Homemade Baby Food: Banana & Avocado Puree

Made some banana and avocado puree for Baby FAN. But she don't like it, I think she don't like the gluey texture of the mashed banana. So I serve it to SMALL FAN and he loves it and gobble up everything. Here's the recipes:

Banana and Avocado Puree
  • 2 medium size bananas (I think it's called "punk jiao" in hokkien)
  • 1 ripe avocado
  1. Scoop out the flesh of the avocado, put 2 medium size bananas and mash them together into the desired consistency.
  2. Spoon and serve baby.
  3. I added a dash of lemon into the mixture to prevent it from turning brown and store it in the refrigerator for SMALL FAN. It taste really good served cold.

Homemade Baby Food: Lentil Puree

I combined the recipe from 2 books, the Healthy Home-made Food For Babies & Toddlers by Sara Lewis and Optimum Nutrition for Babies and Young Children by Lucy Burney.

Lentil Puree
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 small carrot
  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin oil
  • 2 medium size potatoes
  • 1/4 red lentils (bought this from the organic section as NTUC fairprice)
  • 210ml of Formula milk
  1. Saute the onion, carrot, potatoes in a little oil for 8 to 10 minutes.
  2. Add the red lentils and the formula milk. Bring to a boil
  3. Cover and simmer for 40 minutes until the lentil are very soft.
  4. Puree the mixture until smooth.
  5. Spoon a little into a bowl and served.
  6. Freeze the rest.

Verdict: Baby FAN likes this and can eat quite a lot.

Self Feeding

Trying to help develop Baby FAN's pincer grip, so gave her some baby biscuits to pick up and bite. Look at her trying hard to put the food in her mouth. Found the Graduates Finger Foods I bought from NTUC Fairprice quite good for this purpose as the biscuit melts when it comes in contact with water so baby FAN won't get choke so easily.
