These purees are your baby's very first tastes of solid food and should be served one at a time to introduce new taste sensations gradually. Pureed vegetables are the next step on from rice cereal.

Age suitability : 4.5months+

Suitable for freezing : Yes

Food group: VEGGIES

Category: Baby


  • pumpkin
  • potatoes
  • broccoli
  • sweet potato
  • carrots
  • zucchini

Stove or oven method:

Take two cups of your chosen vegetable. Peel if required and cut into even sized pieces.
Steam until tender and then puree using a stick blender, blender or food processor.
To make it the right consistency for your baby's first food, you will need to add some boiled water to hte puree until it has a nice moist, soft consistency.
Set aside a portion or two and then freeze the remainder in a covered ice cube tray so you are able to defrost portions when required.


  • Steaming on the stovetop, using a pressure cooker and steaming in the microwave are all ideal ways to make baby food.
  • Boiling the vegetables is fine but it will leave your puree less nutritious as the vitamins end up in the cooking water.
  • You need to make sure that you use clean and dry utensils and bowls when preparing baby food to ensure good hygiene.
