Perfect for the weaning process and packed with vitamins.

This blueberry puree makes it easy to introduce blueberries into your baby's diet. Blueberries are one of the few berries you can introduce early on in your baby's weaning process, as they're unlikely to cause an allergic reaction. Strawberries and tomatoes can cause a rash around your baby's mouth if introduced too early. Packed with vitamins and antioxidants, these sweet little berries are perfect for your baby. This simple puree can be whizzed up in 20 minutes or less and is a great stand-by to keep in the freezer. Get more information on baby-led weaning (opens in new tab).


  • 1/2 pint of blueberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 2 cups of water (You can save the liquid to serve as juice or to blend in with cereals etc.)




  1. Bring water to a boil. Add blueberries and simmer for 15 minutes until soft.
  2. Reserve liquid and use a slotted spoon to transfer blueberries to blender/processor/mixer and puree. If needed, add some of the liquid to blueberries.
  3. Add cereal (if desired) to thicken up.

Top tip for making blueberry puree

Try using frozen berries if you are making this recipe during the winter when blueberries are out of season.
