How to prepare spinach for your baby food recipes

Spinach needs to be washed VERY carefully,even if its freshly packed , still before feeding baby its needs to be carefully rinse.

The best way to wash fresh spinach is to completely submerge the leaves in a bowl of water and use your hands to ‘swish’ them around, dislodging any dirt.

Then you should drain the leaves and refill the bowl with fresh water, repeating the process until the water in the bowl looks clear.

Trim off the roots and chop up any thick stems .

Place the leaves in a cooking pot, but don’t add any cooking water ,best is to steam the spinach while making purees for babies.
