Strawberry, Sweet Potato + Farro Baby Food

Oh man! Sweet potatoes, strawberries and cinnamon <——- this is a match made in baby puree heaven!

This puree is a little sweet and a little savory – a deep rich taste from the sweet potatoes, a little summer fun kick from the strawberries and a little spicy wholesome cinnamon for a complimentary flavor kick, are all blended together before being swirled in with nutty and chewy farro.

You can serve this as a chunky puree with a little cooked farro, or you can puree the farro along with the sweet potato mixture for a smooth puree for baby. Either way, this puree has it going on!

I spooned this puree into reusable pouches for the girls and they couldn’t get enough! They went through 6 pouches in 2 days!! I probably should monitor their pouch intake but when they are eating pouches full of beta carotene, vitamin C, antioxidants, fiber and protein for a snack, I always cave.

Notes on Strawberries: in the spring time when strawberries are not at their juiciest, I find that giving them a quick steam helps make their flavor more impactful. If you are making this at the height of strawberry season and your strawberries are bursting with flavor, feel free to skip the steaming step.
