Baby Food Recipes: Herby Sweet Potato and Rice

Weanmeister Silicone Freezer Pods

First foods for babies can seem a bit daunting when you first start out, but actually, they’re super easy. Here’s one of my favourite recipes from when my two boys were first weaning.

Baby’s First Foods – Herby Sweet Potato and Rice

Take one cup of steamed and mashed sweet potato, and mix it with one cup of cooked rice. Blitz it with a pinch each of fresh chopped parsley and basil. Yum!

Freeze what you don’t need, and defrost it for when you do. (I can highly recommend the Weanmeister silicone freezer trays if you’re looking for something non toxic to freeze baby food in!)

I did a version of this where I added a bit of garlic. I wasn’t following a recipe, just making it up as I went along. Of course, being used to cooking for grown ups, I just chucked in what I thought would work. My son ate up every scrap, but let me tell you that his nappies sure did reek of garlic!
