Sweet Potato, Pear + Red Pepper Baby Food Puree

This mega-watt puree is not only a beautiful thing to look at it is loaded with vitamin A, B6, C, E, folate, beta-carotene, potassium, calcium, lycopene and fiber.

Whew….that just wiped me out.

Combined these nutrients help reduce the risk of cancer and heart disease, helps sustain healthy cholesterol levels, protect the body against rheumatoid arthritis, prevent the development of cataracts and help alleviate baby’s constipation!

All of that in one pretty looking puree.

This is one of my favorite freezer-friendly baby food purees!
