Carrots are sweet and simple tasting to start your baby’s taste buds with and the potato adds those much needed carbohydrates.
2 medium carrots
1 medium potato
Top and tail and peel the carrot, and roughly chop, place in a small pan.
Peel the potato, roughly chop and add to the carrot. Cover with water and simmer for 15 minutes or until soft.
Drain off half the cooking water (reserving the drained water) and blend with a hand held blender, adding more cooking liquid if needed, until you have a soft smooth consistency.
If using a potato masher or ricer, drain all the cooking water and reserve, mash well until lump-free and then add cooking liquid until a smooth soft consistency.
Serve your baby the desired amount, store a little in the fridge for another meal andfreeze the remainder in ice cube trays.
