Ingredients

  • 2 Pears
  • 2 Dried prunes

Method

  1. Peel (optional) and de-seed a fully ripened pear 
  2. Mash or puree as needed for your baby's preference 
  3. Add cereal (if desired) to thicken up.

Pears are gentle on the tummy and thus are wonderful for babies who may be suffering from Reflux.

You may wish to steam pear chunks for a bit to soften them and enable easier digestion for a younger baby, who starts solids at 4 months of age.

There is no need to peel a pear unless feeding one to a small infant. A pear's skin is easily digestible.

A pear is very nutrient dense meaning that there are more nutrients per calorie than calories per nutrient. They contain no sodium, saturated fats or cholesterol. They contain two types of sugars, glucose and fructose.
