Carrots, Broccoli & CheeseMashing rather than pureeing your baby’s food is a good way to gradually introduce more texture. Combining broccoli with creamy mashed potato and cheese is a great baby food recipe as it encourages babies to eat more greens. The relatively strong flavour of the broccoli is toned down by the creamy mashed potato. Broccoli is a true superfood, it is a great source of vitamin C and also contains betacarotene, folic acid, iron and potassium.


  • 300g potatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 1 medium carrot (approx 125g), peeled and sliced
  • 75g broccoli florets
  • 4 tbsp your baby’s usual milk
  • 15g unsalted butter
  • 40g Cheddar cheese, grated


Put the potatoes and carrot into a saucepan, cover with boiling water and cook until tender (about 20 minutes).
Meanwhile, steam the broccoli for about 7 minutes until tender.
Alternatively add to the potatoes and carrot after about 12 minutes.
Drain the potato and carrot and mash together with the broccoli, milk, butter and cheese.
