Butternut Squash Puree

Super simple and sweet. Chloe is addicted to this Butternut Squash Puree. It's also a great thing to keep on hand to mix into other purees.

Butternut Squash Puree

Butternut Squash was one of Chloe's first foods. It was honestly a tough choice trying to decide which fruit or vegetable we would choose for her first food. Butternut squash is in season and all over the farmer's market, so that's what we chose. This video is the first bite she ever took, so it's extra special that we captured it!

Smooth, creamy and easy for baby to get down. This is a must for all babies. Packed with Beta-Carotene to help with babies skin and vision while also giving a boost of antioxidant qualities.

    Hello! Do I need to add an inch of water when I bake this? Or is this essentially roasting it? Thanks!
