Fruits and Vegetables
You can use almost all kinds of fruits and vegetables, like ripe bananas, prunes, peaches, pears. For veggies, consider potatoes, sweet potatoes, and squash.
Just limit their high-nitrate vegetable portions to 1 to 2 tablespoons per feeding. Examples of high-nitrate vegetables are cabbage, carrots, celery, broccoli, spinach, lettuce, and turnips.
You can use meats, such as poultry and fish. Remove the bones, connective tissues, skin, and visible fats.
You can also puree eggs – just make sure they are well cooked until both white and yolk are solid. Babies younger than a year old should only have the yolk because egg white might cause an allergic reaction.
Puree for baby also calls for grains as they are excellent sources of carbohydrates. You can use rice or pasta, and cook them until they are very soft before mashing.
Beans and Peas
Cook beans and peas per instructions; do not add salt or other seasonings.
