Easy-Peezy Homemade Baby Food and Puree: Foods to Avoid

Steer clear of these foods when making your own baby food and purees...
  • Great but Gassy: Broccoli, Cauliflower – Introduce slowly, a little bit at a time to test your baby’s tolerance to gas-inducing foods
  • A Little Too Spicy: Kiwi (when pureed, the seeds release a black pepper-like spice), Peppers
  • Avoid Acidic: Pineapple, Oranges, Papaya, Tomatoes – Fruits high in acidity can cause upset tummies and irritable bowels leading to diaper rash 
  • Allergy Inducing:  Strawberries, Blueberries, Raspberries (high in nitrates that a baby’s developing digestive track may not be able to handle)  and Honey (may contain trace amounts of botulism which can harm an infant)
