Carotene Mash - Baby Food # 2

I’ve heard many telling me about babies spitting out potatoes. Potatoes are really bland, if you ask me, and when they are not seasoned, they have an unpleasant smell.

But not sweet potatoes. They are delicious! And this mash is quick to cook too! I don’t bother with steaming because steaming takes so long, as long as you feed the water it is cooked in, then the nutrients are not lost.

Lydia was actually asking for this mash that was intended for the brother… see! Even kids love it.
There’s no seasoning and it’s sweet. Actually I like it too, LOL.

Baby’s Carotene Mash
Recipe source: WendyinKK
Makes: approximately 1 cup of mash

¼ cup thinly sliced carrots
¾ cup diced orange sweet potatoes
¾ cup diced pumpkin /butternut squash
½ cup water

1. Put water and carrots into a small saucepan and bring to a oil on medium heat, lower to a simmer, cover with lid and simmer for 5 minutes
2. Put in diced sweet potatoes, give it a light stir, bring back to a boil and lower to a simmer (lid on (for another 5 minutes)
3. Put in diced pumpkins, give it a light stir , bring back to a boil and lower to a simmer (lid on) for another 5 minutes.
4. Lightly press to test if all components are tender. Add little bit of water if it’s too dry, but at the end of the cooking, there should be minimal liquids in the pot.
5. Blend to preferred consistency or just mash with a fork.
6. Let it come to slightly warm before feeding baby.

*Do not feed this to baby too often, in case the hands and nose turns yellow. I do this once in 2 weeks only.
