Rainbow Chard Butternut Squash and Pea Puree

I introduced chard this past week, and surprisingly my little guy likes it. Chard is a super food for babies. It's full of iron. folate and fiber. Mix it with butternut squash and peas, and you have a mixture that's full of iron, folate, fiber, Vitamin A and Vitamin C. This recipe is for babies 8+ months.

Here's what you'll need:
1 oz cooked rainbow chard puree
2 oz cooked butternut squash puree
1 oz cooked pea puree

Saute rainbow chard with olive oil until wilted, and then puree with filtered water. Peel and cut butternut squash into cubes and steam for aprox 8 minutes. Mash or puree with filtered water. If using fresh peas steam in microwave safe steamer for 10-12 minutes, then puree with filtered water. If using frozen peas, cook with a little water in a microwave safe bowl for 5 minutes, then puree. Mix all ingredients together, serve and enjoy!
