This recipe is great when you are still on runny purees. After you have started with your root vegetable purees, a nice next step is to mix your vegetables with fruit to make it more palatable for your little one. Make sure to wear gloves when preparing the beetroot to reduce staining.

Makes: 4 portions
2 beetroot, peeled and diced into 1cm cubes
