Homemade baby food: Puréed parsnip recipe

Purées are usually your baby’s very first tastes of solid food and should be full of healthful things like vegetables and fruits. Sweeter than their carrot cousins, parsnips are an excellent source of dietary fiber and Vitamin C, that help battle against constipation as well as various infections. These root vegetables also promote healthy connective tissue, teeth, and gums for your growing baby. Here’s how you can use parsnips to make easy homemade baby food.
