Ever heard the saying "an apple a day keeps the doctor away "? Babies also need to keep the doctor at away, or don't you think so?
Apples and Strawberries are not completely exotic to Nigeria, they are often found in Jos, Plateau state. It is not always advisable to buy those ones that have almost gone around the world before arriving in Nigeria. There is that suspicion that they may have been treated with chemicals for preservation. When it comes to food, one should be careful what one consumes, especially when it has to do with babies' foods. So for the parents in Nigeria, when one comes across such fruits and is sure they are organic and home-grown, one can give this Apple/Strawberry puree a try.
Strawberries are rich in antioxidants and are good for babies in moderation.
Choose and wash blemish-free strawberries and apple. The number of each type of fruit you choose should depend on the quantity of puree you want to make and which fruit you want to predominate in the puree. In the one we made, one red apple and four strawberries were used.
Peel the apple and slice into small bits. Cut or slice the strawberries into smaller bits as well. This is to make it easier for the blender or food processor to puree.
The visually appealing puree is ready. Can be offered to babies who have started complementary feeding. That is babies from 6 months and above.
