Homemade baby food: Carrot and potato purée

Making a potato dish is a great way to satisfy your child’s hunger while getting some nutrients into his/her system! Potatoes contain both Vitamin B6 and potassium, which are useful in maintaining regular levels of fluid in the body. Meanwhile, carrots store a good amount of beta-carotene, which are converted into Vitamin A into your child’s body. Potatoes and carrots also taste good, by themselves or combined! Here’s a homemade baby food version of a mashed potato dish with a twist.
