When can my baby start with solids?
You can start introducing solids at around 4 months. To make the transition from breast or bottle feeding smoother, begin with mild flavors.
What if my baby doesn't like the puree?
It's normal for your little one to adjust to new tastes. That's why it's essential to introduce single flavors gradually. Start with vegetables before moving on to fruits. Trying one type at a time is recommended. Don't be alarmed if your baby doesn't immediately like the taste; it can take up to 15 tries for a child before your baby likes a certain taste.
Which fruits are suitable for your baby?
Some soft and suitable fruits to offer your baby include bananas, (cooked) apples, avocados, or mango.
Homemade fruit puree with peanuts or nuts
Below, you'll find how to make a snack with steamed apples and apricots, but subscribe to our newsletter or the Happje app for more inspiration.
Steamed apple with apricots (from 6 months)
What you need:
- 1 apple
- 2 apricots or 4 dried apricots
- 1 scoop of Vini Mini Follow-up Kit or the last sachet from Vini Mini Starter Kit
- Hand blender or food processor
What to do:
1. Peel and dice the apple.
2. Peel the apricots, remove the pit, and cut into smaller pieces. You can also use dried apricots. Ensure they are unsulfured and contain no added sugar.
3. Cook or steam (see tip!) the apple along with the apricots (including dried ones) in a steamer or a saucepan with water.
4. Puree until smooth using a hand blender or a food processor.
5. Add the sachet or scoop of powder to your fruit portion.
6. This fruit snack stays good in the refrigerator for 2 days and up to 3 months in the freezer.
Steaming or boiling for your baby?
Steaming is the best method for preparing your baby's puree as it retains the most vitamins and minerals and preserves the flavor best. Steam the fruit until they're tender; the cooking time may vary depending on the fruit type.
Is apple healthy for your baby?
Apples are super healthy for your baby because:
- They contain pectin, which is beneficial for the gut flora.
- They contain polyphenols (antioxidants) that have anti-inflammatory properties.
- They are rich in vitamins C and B6.
- They support good heart function.
Introducing peanuts and nuts according to the Rapley or Kleintjes method
If you want to introduce peanuts or nuts according to the Rapley or Kleintjes method, you can do that as well. In this case, we recommend pureeing a small amount of apple and adding Vini Mini peanut or nut powder to it. Then, you can sprinkle the Vini Mini powder over half-cooked apples (without skin) and offer it in that way. However, this can only be done from 6 months onwards.
