Healthy Nutrition - Tips and Recipes for Baby Food

For over 50 years, the healthy development of babies and children has been of particular concern to all of us at NUK. This also includes nutrition: a tasty and good mix of vital nutrients and vitamins is the best foundation for growing up big and strong. Nutritionally balanced purees that taste good

are much easier to make than you think – and homemade is not only healthier, it tastes best to children too. With the help of experts we have developed recipes that you can quite easily cook for yourself. So: pans at the ready, steady, go!

This is the way to start with the first puree.

Enjoy your meal, baby!
