Pressed and jostled for time, no question of giving in to panic. Here are some quick puree ideas to make while preparing your family meals.
Particularly on weekday evenings, you have to know how to be cunning to take advantage of every opportunity to collect "leftovers" and make succulent purées.
Possible remains found in all households
- Rice: If it does not contain soy sauce and is not flavored, it is used to make small meals for Junior.
- Vegetable Plate: These washed, cut and arranged vegetables should never end their days anywhere but in a soup for toddlers or finely pureed for beginners.
- Cooked meats: Remove the pieces that contain more fat. Then it's recoverable for the little ones. Add milk or water to the blender and here is a delicious puree.
- Cooked vegetables: They can be mixed with cooked meat to make a quick boil or used separately for super easy purées.
- Cheese: You add pieces or grate them to pair them with your purées. They can also be used with pasta and a dash of sauce.
No cooking (or very little!)
A supper drags on and you decide to stay for dinner without having brought baby food. It is easy to prepare express purees without cooking. You just have to know how to eat the right foods:
- Banana: Very simple! We mash it with a fork. If the texture seems too thick, add a little milk or even a little orange juice… Delicious!
- Canned Lentils: They are already cooked. You can mix them with tomatoes and mash them with a fork if baby is used to thicker textures.
- Melons: No cooking for melons, this is the right formula. Ripe to perfection, they make an excellent puree. You can freeze it to relieve teething pain during seizures.
- Apples or pears: When the child starts to eat small pieces, you can grate pieces of apple or pear. It's much easier to eat that way.
- Grapes: The task is more complicated, because at the beginning of their fruity exploration, it is better to remove the skin from the grapes to avoid the risk of choking. Then, they are cut into four or two before giving them to baby. But grapes are still an interesting snack. By the time baby eats a grape, we have time to prepare another one for him while watching him. And so on!
- Seedless cucumber: It can be given in very small pieces or finelytabs.
- Avocado: A ripe avocado is easy to mash. Crush it just before serving, otherwise it will brown and take on a less appetizing appearance!
