Apple Sauce | Stewed Apple

An apple a day keeps the doctor away is a very well-known saying but from which age can we start this?The baby can't digest apple in the raw form until 6 months.This is a nice way to introduce apple to the lil one's diet.As the kid grows older the apple can be stewed or can be given as a milkshake.

You need:

Apple-1 medium sized

This is a method that I follow and it is quick and easy and involves practically no stirring!Wondering how?

I just peel,core and chop the apples and pressure cook it for 8 to 10 minutes or till done.
Then lightly mash it with a potato masher or a spoon and feed it to my lil angel.
Add sugar[optional] and serve.

As simple as that. What's more interesting is that you can serve this apple sauce to your lil one even when he/she has diarrhoea. The cooking process softens the cellulose and provides bulk to the feces.

But be sure to consult the paediatrician before you feed a sick child

Note :

This stewed apple/apple sauce goes to my event 'Tasty bites for toddlers'.
