Pear, apricot & strawberry puree

{We created this recipe for the Philips Avent 4-in-1 healthy baby food maker.}

Total 20 minutes

Steam 15 minutes

Makes: 1 cup (230g)

Freezable, Gluten Free, Wheat Free, Egg Free, Dairy Free, Vegetarian

Nutrition Note: Transitioning from smooth purees to textured meals can be a challenge for some babies. To adjust the texture to best suit your baby’s preference simply reduce the quantity of oats or try adding an extra spoonful of puree and/or yoghurt.  


  • 2 medium pears (approx. 220g each)
  • 3 fresh or preservative free dried apricots (approx. 35g each)
  • ½ cup strawberries


  1. Wash and peel the pears. Wash the apricots and strawberries.  Cut the fruits into roughly 1cm size cubes.
  2. Remove the lid from the Philips Avent 4-in-1 healthy baby food maker jar and place in all of the ingredients. Replace the lid and lock into the right position.
  3. Remove the lid of the water tank and pour water into the tank until it reaches the “10/15 min” level.
  4. Replace the lid of the jar. Press to lock the lid of 4-in-1 healthy baby food maker jar in the steam position.
  5. Set the steam time to 15 minutes. It will start steaming and stop automatically after 15 minutes.
  6. Turn the steam button back to the “off” position.
  7. Flip the jar over.
  8. Place the jar on the main unit. Rotate it clockwise to lock it into the blend position.
  9. Blend 2 to 3 times for 10 seconds each, until the desired consistency is reached.

  • ½ tsp chia seeds
  • ½ tsp sesame seeds (or sunflower seeds, pepitas for older children)

*Substitute cooked quinoa or quinoa or rice flakes in place of the oats if gluten free is required. Omit the yoghurt and use breast milk/formula/dairy free milk alternative for allergies to cow’s milk protein.
