How delicious does the combination of papaya, mango and pear sound? This puree has a really tropical feel to it and I remember Harry really enjoyed the new flavours. It’s worth giving papaya a go. They do say it’s best to cook it until bub is about 8 months as it can be a bit hard on their tummies. I kept some refrigerated to serve over the next few days, and froze some. Harry loved this on its own or mixed with baby porridge.
