Carrot Puree

This is another one of Layla’s favorites. And it is super easy to make! Just peel the carrots, cook for 6-8 minutes, and puree. You can mix carrots (which are a sweeter veggie) with less sweet veggies (like the green ones) to make them more palatable.

Carrots are packed with Vitamin A, which is terrific for your skin and your eyes. It’s also a great first food for little ones because it’s less likely to cause allergies and is very easy to digest.
