Homemade baby "Cerelac" with rice cereal and vegetable medley purees :)

I have introduced fruits and vegetables to my baby since he's six months old.

Fruits: Avocado, apple, pear, nectarine, prunes, banana

Vegetables: Butternut squash, pumpkin, carrot, zucchini (green, yellow), sweet potato (yellow, orange, purple), snow pea (fresh, frozen)

I also make my own homemade baby "Cerelac" by mixing Why Not? Organic First Flavor Cereal (rice) with vegetable medley purees for him. It's fun!

I prepare the rice cereal and the vegetables puree separately.

Note: I don't freeze purees because I think he suffers from wind after eating defrosted and re-steamed purees.

For the rice cereal, I stir two tablespoons of rice cereal with warm water and set aside. Once the vegetables have been steamed and pureed, I pour the rice cereal into the puree and mix well. Then, I add a teaspoon of virgin coconut oil.

Vegetable medley #1: Green zucchini, orange sweet potato

Vegetable medley #2: Green zucchini, carrot, purple sweet potato

Vegetable medley #3: Green zucchini, yellow zucchini, carrot, butternut squash

Vegetable medley #4: Green zucchini, carrot, snow pea (fresh and frozen)

Great bonding-feeding time between father and son! :)

Note: Baby is eight months old. I will include more grains into his diet, including brown rice, oats, red lentil, and millet.


  1. Hi Joyce,

    May I know how you prepare food for LO everyday to bring for babysitter?

    My LO is six months old now. He doesn't like frozen puree. What can I do?

    Thanks. Hope to hear from you soon! :)

    1. Hi Yi Ling,

      Fresh purees are easy to make. For example, for a 6 mo baby, he just needs 1/8 of an apple. Steam for 8min then mash. After mash, just keep in an airtight container. A 6mo just needs 1-2 teaspoons of puree. Main food is still milk. :)

      My FB is - you can message me if you want. :)
