Kids love apple-sauce anytime, but sometimes beet is not so loved. Because I like beet and believe the kids should get to enjoy them and their healthy benefits (calcium, potassium, vitamin A). I was excited when I saw this recipe on babyfoode.com and was excited because apples any way are loved in our home. She calls this sauce pink magic so I figured a play with magic food at my house would be fun. I went with beet magic and now eating beet apple sauce is followed with some dancing! It is a great variation to regular apple sauce and a great starter food for little kiddos 8+ months.
2 cups water
- Peel, core and chop the apples, then peel and chop the beet.
- Place apples, beet in a pan with water (add as necessary) over medium/low heat for 25 minutes.
- Mash with a spoon to get a chunky sauce or blend for smooth sauce.
