beet and carrot purée

With Vitamins A through C, beets are good for me (and you, too)! This month, we’re featuring a super simple Stage 2 recipe from our Babycook Book. To balance the earthy taste of beets for baby, we’ve added carrots to this purée. The carrots sweeten the purée and provide an extra boost of Vitamins A, K and C.

Good to Know: Beets have a fantastic amount of calcium, potassium and vitamins A, B and C. By steaming beets in your Babycook, the Vitamin A and beta carotene will be more easily absorbed by your baby’s body.
