Recipe: Spinach and potato puree

It can sometimes be a challenge to get even an unfussy eater to eat healthily. But with this simple and healthy spinach and potato puree baby food recipe, you’ll have your little one going “nom, nom, nom” before you can say, “Here comes the aeroplane.”

This recipe is for children aged seven to nine months who are getting started eating solids. And take note: if eating solids is quite new to your baby, and you’re trying new ingredients, it’s a good idea to wait several days to introduce each new food.

This mild-flavoured green puree is a great source of protein, fibre and vitamins – ideal for your baby’s growing body. And with little else to do other than mix mashed potatoes with spinach leaves, it’s a simple solution for any meal of the day.
