Banana (Stage One)

By far the easiest baby food in the world to make. My little monkey face thinks they are just the greatest things in the entire world!

I sliced one bushel (7) of bananas into my food processor and wizzed away.

Bananas get pretty liquid when pureed so I added about a cup of Gerber Oatmeal, which helped thicken it up. I add about 2tbls to 3oz when serving as well.

They will turn brown very shortly after pureeing. There is nothing wrong with that. You can add a drop of lemon juice to prevent this. I opted not TP because my pediatrician said no citrus. The drop or two should not cause a reaction but we opted to skip this step.

  1. Thanks so much for posting your experience w/baby food making. We're still a couple of months away from having a go at the baby food making ourselves. When I read these posts, I feel like it's possibly easier than I had feared, which is very encouraging. :)
