Yellow Squash and Carrot Puree

Yellow Squash Carrot Puree

Growing up my mother made the most heavenly yellow squash dish that was so simple, yet mouthwateringly delicious. I still make it for myself and 
sometimes I add steamed carrots like I did in this recipe. There are only 3 ingredients, but when they're packed with this much flavor, why 
would you need anything else?

    Hi, I’m introducing my 5 month old baby boy to pureed foods. Loved a bunch of your recipes, but was wondering if there was a way to tell for what ages these were appropriate. Thanks!

      Hi Maggie! In general, when your baby is first starting out on solid foods, you should only introduce 1 solid food at a time, and serve that for about 3-4 days to watch out for any allergic reactions. After he has tasted several foods with success, then you can start mixing them together. So a 5 month old could eat this puree if it is thinned out enough, and if he has already tried yellow squash and carrots on their own with no negative reactions. Hope this helps!
