Chewy Fruit Snack baby recipe

A really simple little recipe to give to your baby. It is extremely simple; and you can ever change it and adapt it to suit your baby’s needs. Try a fruit you are definite they like at first, then experiment with different fruits with that fruit, or on their own. You could also try more exotic fruits like mango or passion fruit, if your baby already loves fruit. This is one to do on your own though, as the boiling fruit and temperatures are not really ideal to have children around in the kitchen! Save that for making baby’s first fairy cakes.

Ingredients:

  • 500g dried fruit
  • 750ml to 1000ml water And that’s it!

Method of Preparation:

Cut up all of the fruit into small cubes. Whichever you’ve chosen, and if you’ve chosen mixed fruit, make sure they are all the same size.

Put the fruit into a saucepan, and make sure it is fully covered with the water.

Bring to the boil. Cook for around 10 minutes, or until completely soft and the mixture has gone a bit gooey. It may be a bit longer dependent on what type of fruit you’re using.

Whilst this is cooking, grab a baking tray. You can either line it with greaseproof paper or foil, but make sure it is completely covered because it is really difficult to get this mixture off of baking trays! Butter or grease the greaseproof paper or foil, too, as this will make it easier for you to turn it out.

Put the oven on to warm at 225 degrees Celsius.

Once the fruit is very soft and almost mushy, drain the water. Don’t squeeze out too much, as you don’t want it to be too dry.

Blend the fruit into a puree in your blender or whatever you use to puree.

Spoon this into the baking tray, making sure there are no holes. Basically, with this recipe, you are melting down the fruit and putting it into a different, baby-friendly shape.

Pop this into the oven for 35 minutes. Once this time is up, turn off the oven – but leave the mixture in there.

Leave this to cool overnight. The next morning, you are ready to turn them out.

I would recommend cutting them whilst they are in the foil, and then turning them out ready cut. Your chewy, fruit, baby snacks are ready!
