Weight Gain Recipes for Babies Under One

Apple Pear Puree for Babies

When preparing the delightful apple pear puree with a touch of cinnamon for your little one, it’s important to prioritize their health and safety.

Here’s a step-by-step guide to creating a nutritious and flavorful meal:

Begin by ensuring the utmost cleanliness of all utensils and equipment. Sterilize them using a Sterilizer or by boiling them in hot water, as this helps maintain a hygienic environment for preparing the apple pear puree.
Carefully select a juicy red apple and a firm pear for the puree. Give them a gentle wash with water to remove any impurities, ensuring the highest quality for your apple pear puree.
Peel the skin of the apple and pear, revealing the tender flesh underneath. Remove the cores and seeds to create a smooth and delectable texture in your apple pear puree.
Proceed to cut the apple and pear into small, manageable pieces. This step facilitates even cooking and blending later on, ensuring a harmonious blend of flavors in your apple pear puree.
In a thick-bottomed pan, fill it with water and place a bowl with the apple and pear inside. To infuse a delightful hint of warmth, add a pinch of cinnamon to the mix. Cover the pan and cook until the desired consistency is achieved, allowing the flavors to meld and create a tantalizing apple pear puree.
Once cooked to perfection, you have two options for preparing the puree. Using a spoon or masher, gently mash the apple and pear together, blending their natural sweetness and creating a texturally pleasing apple pear puree. Alternatively, for a velvety smooth consistency, you can use a blender to transform the apple and pear into a luscious apple pear puree.
Should you find the puree too thick, you can add a small amount of breast milk or formula to achieve the desired consistency in your apple pear puree. This step ensures optimal comfort and ease of consumption for your little one.
Transfer the freshly prepared apple pear puree to a sterile feeding bowl, ensuring that it remains free from any contaminants.

This meticulous attention to cleanliness safeguards your baby’s health and enhances the quality of their apple pear puree.
Finally, it’s time to serve this nourishing apple pear puree to your little gourmet.

With just three ingredients, and two steps, this is an incredibly easy recipe! Peas are very nutritious for growing babies, with a single cup containing more protein than a tablespoon of peanut butter!

So go ahead and let your baby enjoy a lovely, nutritious green peas and potato puree for dinner!

Ghee Rice for Babies


½ cup cooked rice

½ tsp jeera powder

1 teaspoon Ghee


  1. Cook short grained rice with water in a 1:2 ratio of rice to water. If you have cooked rice on hand, you can skip this step. 2. In a pan, melt the ghee.
  2. Turn off the heat. Add the rice and jeera powder and stir well to combine. 4. Serve the ghee rice in a bowl. If your baby has just started out with solids, you can add a little hot water for a runnier texture.

For older babies, you can add some more texture with finely grated carrots or beetroot. It’ll up the nutrition quotient of the dish, not to mention making it more colorful! But of course, if it’s one of those days, you’d better just stick to the basic recipe and leave the experiments for another day!
