    • That is a great idea! Another thing you can do is defrost one cube and add it to oatmeal. YUMMY!!! Blueberry puree doesn’t last long in this house! 🙂

    Woah this is really weird but a friend was just asking me if puree had to be boiled for babies. Anyways it’s pretty cool I ran across this article and will definitely be showing it to her.

    • Hi, Jerry! Well, I am happy you stumbled upon this site as well! It really depends on the produce and the baby’s age. Let your friend know where to find some easy and nutritious recipes! There are many more on the way!

  2. Another great idea I’ll have to write down. Quick question though, why do the blueberries need to be boiled if the baby isn’t 8 months old yet? I mean I know they can’t handle solid food, but would mashing them have the same affect? Thanks!!

    • That is an excellent question, Sam! It’s recommended because it breaks down sugars and fibers in the fruit, making them easier for babies under 8 months old to digest.

  3. Another great recipe Rachel! I love the idea of incorporating blueberries into a baby’s diet. They are full of great antioxidants and are small and cute- as if they were made for babies! I can’t wait to share this with my cousin’s yet to be born baby! Thank you. 🙂

    • Thank you, Grace! It is always a pleasure to read your comments! I completely agree! What could possibly make blueberry puree any better? They mix incredibly well with so many fruits and veggies, even if the thought of it seems odd. My son loved blueberries in just about every puree and cereal! Great seeing you again, Grace! Stay healthy!

  4. Hey Rachel,
    This is another great recipie. What I love about your site is you are teaching people to make quality nutritious food for you baby without the added chemicals in mass produced baby foods. So is there a way to can baby food naturally so you can take it on trips?

    • That is an excellent question, Calvin! I plan on publishing a page with specific guidelines for traveling with homemade baby food. These guidelines will depend on baby’s age, travel time, mode of transportation, the length of the trip and if the homemade baby food is fresh or frozen. It is absolutely possible to travel with homemade baby food while keeping it fresh and safe to eat. I will make this a priority! Thank you, Calvin!
