I call this a Nutritional Powerhouse Puree because this mixture is a bomb full of nutrients! This can be made into a power drink too for adults!
Constantin wasn’t sure about the taste at first but then accepted it and finished his portion with a smile. So don’t go overboard with brussels sprouts as it has a very strong taste and it’s not an easy vegetable nor likeable taste to give to babies on its own.
Some health facts:
Brussels sprouts and swiss chard are incredible powerhouses of nutrition! Both have an excellent source of vitamins K, and C. Swiss chards have good source of magnesium, potassium, iron, and dietary fiber.
Brussels sprouts deserve to be featured on dinner plates more often than they usually are. They are a very good source of numerous nutrients including folate, manganese, vitamin B6, dietary fiber, choline, copper, vitamin B1, potassium, phosphorus, and omega-3 fatty acids. 💪💪💪
As usual, I served the puree with his favourite numnum weaning spoon. 🙂
- 1 large sweet potato (peeled & chopped)
- 4 brussels sprouts (removed the dirty leafy part and cut into half)
- 1 large stalk of swiss chard inc. the leafy part (cut into smaller size)
- 2 red apples (peeled, cored & cut)
- Steam everything together for 15 minutes and blend until you’ve reached your desired consistency. Add the steamed liquid to thin out the puree if required.
