Baby Food Recipe 5 months- Banana and Avacado

Print Friendly

BY Jaishri,

My pediatrician adviced us to start off with basic fruits and veggies after my baby turned 5 months.


Here are some things that were adviced:

Fruits- Banana, Avocado, Apple Mash

Veggies- Boil veggies and only give the soup, Potato mash, Sweet Potato mash, carrot boiled and mashed very well.

Dal/ Lentil water (add some jeera/cumin while boiling the dal)

Please note that since your baby is very small don’t give anything raw to the baby and make sure it is in a soup or cereal form. Even tit bits are not allowed. Pass everything through a sieve. Here is one of my recipes.

I did not want to add sugar to the avocado so I added banana for the sweetness and my baby eats a bit of this every alternate day. She hates apples or any other fruits right now, even carrot she refused.

Scoop out avocado and cut banana (use the small ones, it’s called yelakki here in Bangalore)


Boil it with water for a few minutes; you can also steam the fruits.


Put it on a sieve and press the mash down with a spoon and then scoop the pulp from the back side of the sieve.



Add boiling water to adjust the consistency of the mash.
