Chicken, Sweet Potato & Spinach Puree

So, this chicken, sweet potato and spinach puree should look a little more orange, right? Well I picked up a purple sweet potato in the green grocers the other day and it’s flesh is white.  It’s also a little less sweet than the usual orange varieties so I’ve added a couple of slices of pear into the mix.  George has some big teeth working their way up through the gums which  has made some meal times a little interesting.  We had no problems with this one, nice flavours and a smooth texture.

Nutrition Note: Sweet potatoes that have dark orange flesh have more beta-carotene, a nutrient and an antioxidant, than varieties with lighter flesh.

    Hello, from what age can you start using recipes like this one? And also start introducing chicken?

    juat wondering what kitchen appliance you recommend to puree small quantity foods. Unless I make in bulk and use a stick blender, I find the smaller quantities difficult to puree effectively. Is there a smaller blender, processor or something else designed specifically for baby purees (apart from a thermomix). I used a coffee grinder for a small puree recently but it proved difficult to clean. Thanks
