Applesauce for Babies – Apple pureed and cooked to a sauce texture. This is given to babies especially during constipation. This can be made and stored in refrigerator for a week. Apple sauce can be added in porridge, kheer or can be given as such. Apple sauce can also be used for baking.
It is quick and easy to make and turns out delicious that most of the babies will love it. I prefer making it fresh as it is not much time consuming. Based on the apple variety chosen, you can skip or add sugar based on the sweetness of apple. Instead of white sugar, we can add cane sugar/brown sugar, palm sugar or any other sweetener of your preference.
I have made this apple sauce with little bit of chunks so that my lo loves to bite them inbetween. Incase you are trying this for babies below 1 year, grind it smooth. well, that’s upto your preference.
It is always advisable to cook the apple after grinding. If your baby do not like apples as such, try it mixing with the porridges of their choice. It is a good homemade remedy when they are down with diaherra. Healthy and effective medicinal value helps them regain their stamina faster.
