Potato- and veggie mash
You can give this potato-vegetable puree as the first food the child gets with spoon. You can vary the mash with peas, broccoli, cauliflower or courgettes. Remember to vary the vegetables so that the child gets many taste impressions. You can also vary with a little fruit puree, eg pear. It also gives a good taste to the mashed potatoes. You can replace breast milk substitute with regular milk and use the recipe for the whole family when the baby is 9 months old.
