Home Made Fruit Purees
Fruit purees were rather simple to make.
The main point I made was to prepare them fresh just before feeding and heating them to room temperature using the microwave after pureeing in case the fruit had been cooled in a refrigerator.
- Banana. They're gave a medium-thick consistency puree
and were about right for direct feeding.
- Apple had a thick consistency, a tad too thick for
proper mixing, and benefited greatly by adding a bit of pear.
- Pears. Andres loved pears. They gave a thin consistency puree, ok for feeding, but also great for mixing with any other fruit.
I avoided mango (he didn't care much about them) and oranges (too much
fiber, just use some juice).

Preparation was simple:
Take a fruit, peel it, remove core and seeds.
Cut into blender-friendly pieces (about 8 to an apple).
Place in drinking mug and use the stick-blender to puree it.
Heat the cup in a microwave to room temperature if necessary.
Feed directly out of the cup with a spoon.
