If we’re honest, we know very well that baby food isn’t rocket science. The ingredients are simple, the combinations simple and the preparation quick. There is a wonderful aid for this: the high-performance mixer from bianco di puro. In a matter of seconds, this turns solid food into a creamy consistency. In addition, the right tamper for your bianco di puro mixer can display the temperature and thus helps to keep the vegan baby food at the right temperature. Perfect for getting to the heart of the baby’s favorite creations and being able to cater to the child individually.
Make your first vegan baby food yourself
Whether porridge or finger food, the baby should be introduced slowly and step by step into the world of food. On the one hand, in order not to overwhelm the sensitive tummy and, on the other hand, in order to react quickly or better understand in the event of allergic reactions. If you choose the porridge variant for the first complementary food, then start with only one ingredient. Sweet potatoes, for example, are a wonderful choice. To do this, steam the sweet potatoes over low heat and then mix in the mixer to a creamy pulp. Other foods that are great to start with:
Foods that contain fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, E, K) should be mixed with half a teaspoon of oil or nut butter. Rapeseed, linen or olive oil and almond butter are suitable here. The almond butter is also super easy to make yourself in the bianco di puro high-performance mixer. If the baby tolerates the food well, a new one can be added every week and mixed together, for example a carrot-potato mash with rapeseed oil.
Vegan baby food from the 8th month
Did the first month of complementary food go well? Then from the eighth month at the earliest, you can be more willing to experiment and bring in new types of vegetables and fruits. The following are suitable for this:
- Green leafy vegetables
- Dried fruits
Because fruits are digested faster than vegetables, we recommend filling the first porridge of the day with fruits.
Vegan baby food from the 9th month
After the second month of complementary food, i.e. from the 9th month at the earliest, various types of grain can also be imported. Here it is important to choose the first gluten-free varieties. Rice or millet flakes are wonderful. Gluten-free oatmeal is also an ideal choice because it is rich in iron and easy to digest. We recommend mixing oatmeal with a source of vitamin C to increase iron absorption. In general, there are nutrients that are very important in a vegan complementary diet:
- Vitamin D
- Omega-3 fatty acids
- Vitamin B2 and B12
If the baby continues to tolerate the complementary food well, legumes, seeds and kernels can be added step by step.
We have created a balanced and vegan baby food recipe for you that is super easy to make in the bianco di puro high-performance mixer. This recipe should only be fed to the baby from the 9th month:
- 1 boiled, medium-sized potato
- 1 stewed carrot
- ⅓ raw zucchini
- 2 tbsp yeast flakes
- 1 teaspoon rapeseed oil
- energized water
- if necessary a pinch of salt
In the end, it’s about listening to your intuition and that of the child. If you are uncertain or have questions about the vegan diet of the child, let the pediatrician know and discuss basic points such as nutrients.
