Reviewed by Expert panel

Making my three-year-old eat the right fruits and veggies has been my single most stressful parenting issue. A straight 'no' to healthy carrots or papaya on his plate is all I used to get every single time I served it. While I knew there wasn't any magic formula to make my son eat all healthy fruits and green leafy veggies, but there was a solution.

Here are the healthy puree recipes which worked for me: 


1. Carrot Puree:-

✅Peel and dice them into small pieces. 

✅Boil/Steam them

✅ Blend them until it becomes a smooth paste

4. Apple Puree:-

It is truly said- " An apple a day keeps the doctor away".
