5-Minute Pear + Blueberry Baby Food Pure

This delicious and colorful puree is filled with 2 easy-to-find ingredients – juicy pears and sweet blueberries.

Easy, peasy blueberry-squeezy.

It tastes so good that it will knock your little ones socks off!

Not only does this puree taste amazing, but it is also full of essential vitamins and minerals for baby. Pears are loaded with two different types of fiber and help aide in baby’s delicate digestive system. Blueberries are one of the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet and are full of fiber, potassium, folate, vitamin C, K and B6 and a ton of antioxidants which help boost baby’s growing brain, help fight off cancer causing free-radicals and helps support digestion. Wow!

I used one of my favorite puree recipes from one of my favorite brands of baby food, Beech-Nut, to come up with this winning combination, and boy was I happy I copied their puree.

This puree has just enough tartiness from the blueberries to balance out the sweetness from the pears. If you want to kick it up a little, feel free to add in a pinch of cinnamon or cloves to the puree for some more depth.

Anyway you serve this puree, it will for sure be a winner with both you and baby!
