Red Delicious Apples

A simple delicious meal for a baby 6 months and older.


Yesterday I went for groceries and found some wonderful organic Red Delicious Apples. I usually plan my baby’s meal a bit ahead, so was sure that I would serve her apples for breakfast the next day. 

Since I started giving her solids, she liked Apples. So giving her apples with baby cereal or just puree was not a problem.


Apples are packed with a wide range of health benefits. They are a wonderful source of vitamin C and fiber. Apple’s help in regulating blood sugar. They have various antioxidant, anti-cancer, cardiovascular and other beneficial properties.

Apples are considered as the easiest food for little tummies since they are very light on digestion. While choosing apples, look for a firm fruit with rich color. A crisp drawer of your refrigerator is the best to store apples.

  • You can use any baby cereal with this recipe. (Oats, Rice, whole grain etc)
  • You can steam apples as well.
  • I have used Red Delicious Apples in this recipe since they are quite sweeter.
  • Do not discard the water in which the apples get cooked. Use it for other recipe or to achieve the required consistency for feeding as it has all the nutrients of apple.
