1 small banana (approximately 80g peeled weight)
30ml (2tbsp) baby’s usual milk*
- Peel the banana, and cut it into chunks.
- Mash the banana with your baby’s usual milk*, using a fork or, if you prefer, a blender. Do not add sugar.
- Serve your homemade baby banana purée in a bowl and feed with a teaspoon.
This homemade banana baby food is not suitable for freezing. You may find that your baby is only able to eat a few teaspoons in the early days of weaning, but before long will happily eat the full meal.
If your baby is in the early stages of weaning, why not wait until you want a banana yourself, but make a small portion of the fruit into baby food? This means that none of the banana will go to waste.
