The Flavors of Spring in a Purée Popsicle Recipe for Baby

In addition to colorful flowers and emerging buds on trees, spring brings a bounty of fresh

flavors that make a healthy meal, snack or filling for teethers, such as teetherpop™. Start introducing babies at least six months old to new tastes by making homemade smoothies, purées popsicle and juices using in-season vegetables, fruits and herbs.

Seasonal produce may vary by region, based on growing conditions and weather; but generally,

in the U.S., one can find a slew of favorite in-season produce including: apples, apricots, avocados, bananas, carrots, kale, kiwi, lemons, pineapple, strawberries, and more.

Make purée popsicles for little ones using an easy-to-digest combination of fruits or vegetables that your baby is familiar with. Be sure that any ingredient you include in the smoothie has been previously given to baby separately, to rule out any food allergies or digestion issues.

Here are some Flavors of Spring Purée Popsicle Recipes to get you started.
