How to make homemade spinach purees for babies?

Spinach is filled with anti-oxidants and is very good for babies between 8 to 10 months. However be careful as some paedriticians recommend feeding babies commercially produced spinach puree rather than fresh due to high level of nitrates. Hence please do consult your doctor. Here is a step by step procedure to make spinach puree:
1) Step 1: always purchase fresh organic spinach as spinach is one of the foods with highest pesticide residue. Also check for dark green and blemish free leaves.

2) Step 2: next step is to remove the stem and sock in cold water for two minutes ,then rinse it through running water.

3) Step 3: steam the spinach till its tender( like for 5 minutes). Then drain, and rinse the spinach with cool water for three minutes to stop the cooking process

4) Step 4: blend the spinach in a processor until smooth, you can add water to make it to the desired consistency.

5) Step 5: spinach can also be mixed with veggies and grins like carrots,sweet potato.

6) Step 6: leftover spinach puree can be refrigerated for 3 days and has to be kept in BPA free container. If its frozen it can be kept for 3 months. Before consuming it can be thawed in refrigerator

Babies need all the essential nutrition which they need at early stage like the vitamins and minerals. Which they can get from fruits or vegetables like apples, mangoes, bananas, pears, sweet potato , spinach. Give purees made up of fruits and vegetables which will help babies in growth and development. Spinach helps in blood circulation and helps in increasing red blood cells.

to make the purees of spinach in home is very good but it is very much time consuming and also it i difficult to store as well so I personally prefer to buy it from amazon my personal favorite is happa foods which offer spinach puree pouches the best flavor combination is sweet potato+ spinach

IMPORTANT TO KNOW: Bright green vegetables are inhibitors of iron absorption, i.e. substances inhibiting the absorption of iron, binding it and removing from the body. Yes, I can argue, they say, they have increased iron content in itself. Yes, it is, but in addition to iron, they also contain a sufficient amount of phytates and polyphenols. Phytates are a form of storage of phosphates and minerals present in grains of cereal plants and green vegetables. They actively inhibit the absorption of iron, while acting in direct proportion to the dose, and even small amounts can inhibit the absorption of iron. That's why kids need spinach and parsley to be excluded from the diet. By the way, the usefulness of spinach is a phenomenon inflated by advertising. Especially its mineral "saturation". This went after, as a result of a typographical error, the comma in the iron content was not beaten out there. Nevertheless, spinach contains a large amount of polyphenols and oxalinic acid, which according to the international classification of products classify it as inhibitors of iron absorption in the body (see above). For example, spinach reduces the level of absorption in the child's body by more than 76%. Therefore, it should be eaten only by children who have 100% no problems with iron deficiency anemia, who are older than one and a half years, who have enough sources of HEME iron, i.e. meat, in their diet
