Teach your veggie baby to eat their broccoli early on! This super veggie is so good for your little ones — it actually has MORE vitamin C per 100 grams than does an orange.
And, the more you offer different veggies at an early age, the more your baby will want to eat them. It’s typically recommended that you wait until about 8-10 months of age to try broccoli as it might cause gassiness, which can be tough on a younger baby’s developing digestive system.
1 bunch broccoli florets, washed and cut into smaller pieces
1 pear, washed, peeled, chopped and cooked
1-3 Tbsp water, breastmilk or formula
Steam or boil your broccoli until soft. In a separate small pot, cook your pear with 1-2 inches of water, until soft. Add both the broccoli and pear to your blender or food processor with fresh water, breastmilk or formula to the puree to create the consistency you want.
Keep any unused puree in the fridge for up to three days, or freeze.
