I hate to state the obvious but make sure you buy in plenty of stain remover because this is really orange! Its also great combined with either a portion of sweet potato and a little grated cheddar cheese (6+months) or a portion of beetroot.

BLW Tip: slice some extra carrot into batons and steam until soft. Place on the highchair tray whilst your little one is eating and see how they touch, play and potentially pick up the batons. Its a great way to get them used to using their gums to mush down food before they get any nashers.


Makes 4 x 30g portions

1 medium carrot (about 150g) peeled and cut into 1-cm cubes

1-2 tbsp cooking liquid


Steam or boil the carrots in a saucepan over a medium heat for 15 minutes or until completely tender. Place in a food processor and puree down until smooth with 2-3 tablespoon of your cooking liquid.
