Baby Food: Butternut Squash & Apple Puree
After your baby has sampled his/her first foods, it is time to add some combinations into their diet. The smooth texture and sweet taste of the butternut squash, paired with a simple apple puree is a great combination to begin adding in. You can substitute your own homemade apple puree for the applesauce in this recipe as well.
