I just love our imagery created by our Munch Mum Renee who has designed our brand. It has a real feeling of being homemade, and a welcoming feeling. When we started Munch Cupboard we put together some tags for our clothing that we were trialing. On the tags we included recipes for mums and dads for their babies. One of these recipes, baby food apple puree, is detailed below and is one which I have used for all my boys.
My sister has an orchard and we were lucky enough to always be provided with lots and lots of apples. I would make big batches and then freeze them in little trays or use it for Apple Crumble. I hope you enjoy my baby food apple puree recipe. It really is dead simple.
Baby food apple puree – Did you know?
Delicious and crunchy apples are notable for an impressive list of phtyto-nutrients, and anti-oxidants. Studies suggest that these components are essential for normal growth, development and overall well-being. So you can’t go too far wrong with creating a big batch of baby food apple puree.
Apples are low in calories; 100 g of fresh fruit slices provide only 50 calories. They contain no saturated fats or cholesterol and are rich in dietary fibre, which helps prevent absorption of dietary-LDL or bad cholesterol in the gut. The fibre also saves the colon mucous membrane from exposure to toxic substances by binding to cancer-causing chemicals inside the colon.
Apples contain good quantities of vitamin-C and beta-carotene. Vitamin C is a powerful natural antioxidant. Consumption of foods rich in vitamin C helps the body develop resistance against infectious agents and scavenge harmful, pro-inflammatory free radicals from the body.
