Serving Apples To Babies
I‘m often asked how to serve apples to babies. Whether you are following a purée approach or BLW there are a range of options.
For babies apples must be softened and easy to smoosh so here are 4 great ways to serve them!
🍎 Finely grated (with a zest grater) and then this can be spread on toast, added to oats etc
🍎 Cut into slices and steamed until soft. I’ve used a crinkle cutter here as it makes them easier to grip
🍎 Blended into a purée with spices. Recipe available here.
🍎 Sautéed until soft with cinnamon. This is so delicious!! They are perfect to grip but soft. Recipe available here.
NOTE: Apples are considered a choking hazard until age 4 so avoid big pieces of raw apple. Once your toddler is proficient at chewing you can move to very thin matchsticks of apple
