Easy Greens Puree (6-9 Month Baby)

Nuvita Biscuits

It’s a good idea to introduce your baby to the flavour of green vegetables early on. However, sometimes they find the taste of some vegetables too strong, so it can be a good idea to mix stronger tasting vegetables like broccoli together with potato or sweet potato. You could also make this puree using other green vegetables like spinach or courgette. Frozen vegetables are often more nutritious than fresh as they are frozen within hours of being cooked so its fine to use vegetables like frozen peas to make your baby’s purees.


40g peeled and chopped onion
15g butter
250g potatoes, peeled and chopped
375 ml unsalted vegetable stock or water
50g broccoli florets
50g frozen peas


Saute the onion in the butter until softened but not coloured (about 5 minutes). Add the potato, pour over the stock or water, cover and bring to the boil and then cook for 10 minutes. Add the broccoli florets and cook for 3 minutes.

Then add the peas and cook for a further 3 minutes. It’s a good idea to puree this in a mouli or baby food grinder to get rid of the husks from the peas and also pureeing potato in a blender breaks down the natural starches and makes it sticky.

Makes 4 portions

    I have a sweet tooth and trying to get more green vegetables in my diet. Is there a such thing as a sweet green vegetable?

    My sister gets grossed when she smells vegetables especially green vegetables. I tried serving her mixed rice with vegetables, but she sepearates each and every vegetable. I asked her why she won’t even take a bite and she says when she was younger she was sometimes forced to eat vegetables even she didn’t want. What can I do?

    I am almost 14 weeks pregnant and I always loved vegetables. But now I am suddenly repulsed by vegetables I once loved. I feel as though green vegetables are the biggest culprits. Are there any suggestions to help me get more nutrients into my diet?

    Is the fish too soft or will it work? Also what is the best substitute for the round green vegetables (size of small tomatoes) served in Thai curries?
    All great answers, thanks. I will probably just use chicken after reading this.
    Good tips on the veggies, standard eggplant sounds like it will do the job.
