Age and Stage: 8 months+ | Stage Two | Second Foods and Beyond | 6 hour cooking in slow cooker
Preparation and Storage for Baby:
When cooled, puree the food in batches. Use a food processor to achieve a smooth texture and add water, formula, or breast milk as you continue to puree. You can also partially puree so that the food has some lumps and bumps to help baby make the transition to table foods.
Using a slotted spoon, remove some of the sweet potatoes and beans and then spoon out some of the apples; set aside to offer as a finger food meal. Store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days for babies and up to 6 months in the freezer
For the Family:
Prior to reducing to a texture suitable for your baby, remove some of the sweet potatoes and apples and set aside. Serve this mix—sprinkled with additional shredded Cheddar cheese, if desired—as a delicious side dish.
