A first purée for your little one, try this carrot and swede blend, packed with vitamins that you can make with their usual breast milk or formula.

Supplied by: BBC Good Food


  • 2 large carrots (about 200g), peeled and cut into chunks
  • ¼ swede (about 200g), peeled and cut into chunks
  • baby’s milk


  1. Put the carrots and swede into a steamer over simmering water and cook for about 20 mins until tender.
  2. Blitz to a purée in a food processor with a splash of milk (or water from the saucepan) to create a smooth texture. You may need to scrape the sides of the bowl a few times while blitzing to get a smooth consistency throughout.
  3. Serve one portion and divide the rest between small containers or ice cube trays and freeze.
