Tummy troubles are a part of growing up pains in babies. Constipation can be one of the uncomfortable experience for the baby.  My daughter used to suffer from severe constipation and it really pain for me to see her in discomfort. So I came up with few recipes which helped her ‘Go’ easily. I started with giving her high fiber foods.

Today, I am sharing a recipe which has Dried Prunes in it. I have cooked apples and dried prunes together and added a little bit of cardamom powder and cinnamon powder to it, just as aromatics. This can be a good option if your baby has a hard time going.

Dried Prunes are one of the varieties of plums, which is smaller than the ones which are eaten fresh. They are a good source of potassium, vitamin A, and vitamin C and are also rich in beta-carotene. Transitioning to solid foods, can at times cause stress on developing a digestive system, which can lead to constipation. Since prunes are high in fiber, they can relieve this stress and help baby go without any discomfort. Dried prunes are at times treated with sulfites, so try to buy ones which are natural and those which are labeled organic. Especially, when you are using them for baby food.

Making your own Prune Puree is easy too. Just add dried prunes to warm water, and let them plum. Then run them through a food processor. This puree can be frozen and can be added to another puree whenever needed.

Notes
Get rid of the prune pit.
You can mix some baby cereal (rice, oats, wholegrain) if the puree gets too watery.
And if it gets too thick, thin it with water/ formula/ breast milk. To achieve the desired consistency.
Serve this puree cold, for better flavor.
This puree is on a sour side, so you can add any sweet fruit to it to make it more appealing to your baby. For eg, Banana

Important Note:

Talk to your baby’s Pediatrician before starting any new food.

    When I used jarred foods, prunes were a favorite. They seemed to have more vitamins in them than other fruits, and my babies all liked them. I’m sure this version is much better!

    My daughter had terrible constipation when she was tiny and prune puree did really help. Wish I’d thought to add the spices though! Delicious sounding recipe as usual!

    My daughter has had prune juice in her milk twice a day since she was a baby she loves it. She’s seven now and has no problem with the toilet
