Potato puree is a great recipe for when you first start weaning your baby. It’s quite a bland flavour, which is ideal for when you start introducing solids into your infant’s diet. Getting your baby used to flavours you will eat as a family later on is easier done sooner rather than later. If you love your spuds then giving your baby them every now and then will give them a taste for them too! The soft smooth puree is the perfect thing to start babies on from very young.


  • 2 large potatoes


  • Peel potatoes and cut into small chunks.

  • Place chunks into a pan with just enough water to slightly cover potato

  • Boil until tender, be sure to check on the water level.

  • Reserve any left over water to use for thinning out the potatoes

  • Place into your choice of appliance for pureeing and begin pureeing.

  • Keep a close watch on the potatoes while you are pureeing as they may turn into “wallpaper paste” if pureed too much.

  • Add the reserved water as necessary to achieve a smooth, thin consistency.
