This simple purée uses two great flavours. Don’t be afraid to mix fruit and vegetables, particularly in the early stages when you have tried single-flavour fruit or vegetable purées and want to start moving on to a mix of two or three tastes.
1 crunchy apple
Peel and core the apple, top and tail then peel the carrot and then cut both into chunky chip sized sticks.
Place the carrot sticks into a baby food processor or steamer and steam for 5-8 minutes until almost soft. Add the apple and continue cooking for a few more minutes until a knife will go into the sticks easily.
Remove the sticks from the processor, reserving the cooking fluid. Keep a few of the sticks to one side and allow to cool, as these can be used for a Baby-Led Weaning treat.
Blend the remaining sticks with a little of the cooking water to a smooth purée.
