Fruit Gel for Babies

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Marli

I am really into making my own babyfood, this recipe was a hit with my son. It is so much healthier than jelly, but tastes just as good! I use whatever fruits are in season ie: peach, mango, nectarine, strawberries, plums - kiwi & pineapple are no-no's because they don't allow the gelatine to set. I also usually put in 2 different fruits for variety.

I made this for my 11 month old son, he loved it. I cut it into bite size pieces and he had fun feeding himself. Will be making this again.
