Corn is such a versatile food. Not only is it amazing on the cob, when it’s added to purees, it has a creamy, starchy quality. The corn in this puree gives it not only a sweet taste, but also a creamy texture.
This recipe can be prepared in minutes and it makes 12 baby servings, so there’s plenty to freeze. Since it has a protein, vegetable and starch it’s a great option when you need to feed baby on the go and don’t feel like lugging three different containers with you.
Corn can be hard to digest, especially for immature tummies. I wouldn’t consider this the best option for a first food, but I’ve been giving this recipe to Kenya since he was 10 months old and he’s never had a problem. By pureeing the mixture, it’s easier to digest.
