Baby Food—Winter Squash
- Ready in: 20 minutes prep
- Serves: 8
- Complexity: easy
Parents who make their own baby food appreciate knowing exactly what they’re feeding their baby, they are glad to be avoiding additives, and they enjoy feeding their baby the same fresh foods that the rest of the family eats.
- 1 lb. squash (or substitute carrots, beets, or sweet potato)
- 2 tablespoons water, breast milk, or formula
Cook the vegetables thoroughly, either by steaming, boiling, or roasting. If roasting, minimize the use of oil or butter. Once cooked and cooled, add the vegetable to the food processor along with 2 tablespoons of liquid, or more if needed, to make a smooth and light purée. Spoon the final purée mixture into ice cube trays and freeze. Once solid, remove the ice cubes from the tray and store in a freezer bag or container. Thaw the ice cubes as needed and serve.
