Weaning Foods for Babies 5 Months and Above (Part 1)


My little one is going on five months so I had to start the search for a more-filling food, since the breastmilk she’s on no longer sustains her.

Before I began my search, I knew I wanted something that wasn’t just filling, but that would also be rich in nutrient, and pleasant in taste. Did I find what I was looking for? I sure did! Here are a few baby food choices I found:

Baby Food Recipe 1. Semovita and Banana Puree

So, the first time I heard of this food choice, I almost puked. Semo-what! Like I was going to make semo for my baby and feed her with what- banana soup? Thankfully, it turned out what I thought and the reality are so far apart. The semovita is made lightly like custard or pap and then the banana puree is added to it.

Here’s How to Go About Preparing this Baby Food Choice


1. Dilute one or two teaspoons of the semovita flour in room temperature water until smooth.

2. Next, pour in boiling water, stirring continuously until you achieve a some-what thick consistency.

3. Blend one medium-sized banana and add to your semovita pudding.

4. Stir both mixture and your baby food is ready!

1. 2 Large Carrots

2. Take off heat and blend into a puree.

3. Add a spoon of baby formula and stir the mixture together.
