The combination of sweet potatoes and peaches make this a sweet and simple homemade meal for your infant. Because the serving size for a baby of 6 to 12 months is just 1/4 cup, this recipe makes a full 10 servings.

Store the unused baby food in the refrigerator for 48 to 72 hours; or, freeze the remainder in ice cube trays and thaw as desired (make sure to use it before 3 months). To thaw, microwave frozen food cubes in 15-second intervals for 60 seconds. For stove top thawing, heat the cubes in a saucepan on low for 5 to 10 minutes. Make sure the baby food is cool before serving.

Ingredients

2 large sweet potatoes (washed)
4 ripe peaches (peeled, halved and pitted)
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
2 tablespoons water (or formula or breast milk)

Directions

 

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Bake sweet potatoes for 55 minutes to 1 hour until tender. Allow potatoes to cool until easy to handle.
  2. Meanwhile, place peaches in a vegetable steamer. Steam, covered, for 6 minutes until tender.  
  3. Peel sweet potatoes, place in food processor and add steamed peaches. Process until smooth.
  4. Add water (or formula or breast milk) for the desired consistency. Sprinkle in nutmeg and blend.
