I introduced beetroots to maha by making it as a puree. But she didn't like it. But i wanted to add beets to her diet. So i added it with the carrots and potato and made it as a puree. This way The carrots made the puree little sweeter and potatoes made it more creamier.
Things to remember:
1)Texture of the puree depends upon you, i would recommend you to make the puree smooth.
2)Your baby wont empty the whole bowl all at once, start with few spoons then increase it gradually as days pass by.
my opinion & experience potatoes wont cause any constipation in
babies. But it may cause gas in some babies. Any how i wont feed this
puree daily, i give it thrice a week.
I don't prefer freezing purees. I make it fresh everyday. But if
you are busy or find difficult to get time, then freeze it in individual
containers and thaw it overnight in fridge.
5)When choosing potatoes, get firm, white variety. And carrots and beets should be sweet and firm.
6)Potato, carrots and beets are less likely to have any allergenic reactions.
