Homemade baby food: Oatmeal with Prune & Apple + Avocado, Potato, Egg & Dill Puree

Hi friends! Sorry for being MIA on the blog lately but turns out that what I have heard the entire pregnancy: “being a mommy is a full time job” to which I usually said “yeah yeah of course, I know that” (but thought – naah I can do it all), oh well, it is true. Being a  mom is a full time job and especially the first 6 months when you’re a full time milking machine has been extremely demanding. Next to that I have been working on a new big project (:-o more soon!) so blogging was not my number one priority. However since little Fer turned 5,5 months, we started solid foods and I have been cooking for him every day since! So for those moms who look for some inspiration for homemade baby food, I will start sharing some of Fer’s favorite meals!

All ingredients I use for Fer’s food are organic and he only drinks water (except for milk of course).

OATMEAL WITH PRUNE & APPLE

Needed for one portion:
15 g oats
150 ml water
1 small apple
1-2 prunes

Ground the oats in a blender till they turn into fine powder.
Peel, core and grate the apples. Chop prunes into small pieces.

Put all ingredients in a small pan and bring the mixture to a slow boil. Simmer covered, mixing frequently, for about 10 minutes until apples are soft and oatmeal is cooked.

Cool off till it’s the right temperature. You can serve it warm or room temperature, little Fer likes it both ways. If your baby doesn’t like texture in his foods, you can mix it together in a blender until smooth.

AVOCADO, POTATO, EGG & DILL PUREE 

Needed for one portion:
1 small potato
1/2 egg, hard boiled
1 small avocado
1 teaspoon of fresh, chopped dill

Steam the potato till they are cooked. Slice the avocado in half lengthwise, de-stone it and scoop the flesh into a blender. Add potato, egg and dill and blend until smooth mixture. Serve warm.

*** TIP: I usually steam more potatoes and make myself a salad from the remaining egg, an extra avocado, steamed potatoes + a dill, lemon salad dressing :)
