Apple and Swede Purée

Apple and Swede Purée

Swede is a great food to introduce to your little ones early on for a few reasons. Here in Ireland, it's usually locally grown, so it is more nutrient dense and beneficial for your baby. Also, swede’s slightly bitter taste is ideal to introduce at a young age so they become comfortable and encouraged to try bitter tastes later on. The combination with apple makes this a meal your little one will love. 

Cook Time: 20-25 minutes
Makes: 16 x 2oz portions

1 small swede
2 apples


1. Wash, peel and chop the swede and apples. Steam the swede for 10-15 minutes, until partially tender.

2. Add the apples to the swede and continue to steam for about 10 minutes, until tender. Blend or mash, adding cooking water if needed, to the desired consistency.
