This is a perfect first food for a little one. I've been making it for Kenya since he started eating solids, but for some reason I forgot to put my recipe on weelicious. Applesauce is THE baby food standard. Inexpensive, healthy, sweet and complementary to so many other fruits and 
vegetables, apples should be one of the stars in your babies diet.

Full of vitamin C and fiber, you can make sauce from almost any kind of apple you can find, although Fuji's and Gala apples are especially sweet and 
delicious.

I add a touch of cinnamon just to give it a little zip, but you could easily leave it out. Why spend more money buying jarred when you can make this in minutes?!

    If you want to add other fruits to this applesauce like you buy in the squeeze pouches, do you have to cook them too? I’m thinking of blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, and pears.

    Just made this for our little one last night. He loved it and we tried a spoon and loved it too. Very yummy! I had gotten a recipe for apple sauce from somewhere else and it wasn’t good and he didn’t like it at all. He was more then happy to eat this apple sauce though. Thanks for the great recipe :-)

    And cinnamon isn’t harmful to the kid?

      Most pediatricians recommend waiting until about 8 months to introduce herbs and spices to babies! Whatever age you choose to do so, if they’re new to solids then you should follow the “3-4 day wait” rule between introducing new foods!

      Lili-
      From what I have read, most pediatricians advise that you can introduce herbs and spices to baby around 8 months.

    Was thinking of making a large batch of this and freezing some. Do you know if it freezes well?
