Most babies take to figs very enthusiastically because of their mildly sweet taste and grainy texture - something new for their palates. Apricot and fig puree, thinned down with milk, is a good combination rich in vitamin A and fibre. Milk adds calcium which is required for the healthy development of your baby's bones.
- Soak the apricots and figs in lukewarm water for about half an hour. Drain both the apricots and figs and deseed the apricots.
- Add milk it and liquidise in a blender to make a smooth purée.
- Strain to remove the seeds of the figs. Serve immediately.
- VARIATIONS: BANANA AND PAPAYA PUREE
- This delicious puree with 4 tablespoons of banana purée and 4 tablespoons of papaya puree is also healthy for your baby.
- PAPAYA AND MANGO PUREE
- Your little one will also relish the combination of 1/4 cup of papaya purée mixed with 1/4 cup of mango purée and 1/2 teaspoon of lemon juice.
- MANGO AND COCONUT PUREE
- A puree of 1/2 cup of chopped mango and 1/4 cup of chopped tender coconut flesh can also be occasionally served as a variation.
- Do not add milk to this combination however.
