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