Ripe bananas are easy to digest and high in antioxidants. Banana is an easy choice for one of baby's first fruits, as no cooking is required. If your little one is just starting on solids, pay attention to texture--you may want to remove any lumps and thin the mixture with breast milk or formula.

Cook's Notes:

For a smoother consistency, puree banana in a blender or food processor till smooth, adding breast milk, formula or water if a thinner consistency is desired. You can also pass the banana through a fine sieve.

Ripe bananas are more easily digestible and are also higher in antioxidants.

To freeze for later, fill an ice cube tray with the puree. Freeze until solid, about 2 hours, then remove cubes from the tray and place in a freezer bag. To defrost, place in a microwave-safe bowl and heat for 30 seconds, or as needed.
