How to Make Parsnip Pureé For Your Weaning Baby
1. Chop up parsnip into small pieces.
2. Gently cook parsnip in a saucepan using only a little freshly drawn water so it is not too wet when puréed.
3. Mash with a fork or push the stewed parsnip through a plastic sterilised sieve into a sterilised bowl (do not add anything to it like sugar, salt or honey).
You can add 2 tsps of baby rice made into a paste with expressed breast milk or formula if you want to.
You don’t want it to be too solid or runny, so you can always add a little more expressed breast milk, formula or cooled boiled water to make it the right consistency.
